Tony Oliver Winberg, age 94, died Aug. 26, 2008, at the Hallmark Care Center in Engelwood, Colo.

He was born on Nov. 23, 1913, in Lakeland, Fla., to Carl Gustav and Signa Sandh Winberg. His family homesteaded at Point of Rocks, Colo., where he started school in 1919. They moved to the Weldon Valley in 1922, where he finished his schooling in the one room school at Goodrich, Colo.

In 1940, he went to Los Angeles, Calif., hoping for a job at Douglas Aircraft because of his strong desire to be involved in flying. Because he had no birth certificate, he was denied employment.

World War II broke out, and he enlisted in the Army Air Force, and while stationed in Topeka, Kan., he met Grace Holeman, who would become his wife. They married in 1944, and after 3-1/2 years in the service, they returned to farm at Weldona, Colo. In 1957, they moved to Denver, Colo., where Tony worked for Gates Rubber Company until his retirement.

Born to Grace and Tony were three sons and one daughter. Preceding them in death were their oldest son, who died in Wheatland, Wyo., when his plane crashed into a power line when he was 35 years old. One year later, their only daughter was killed during a bank robbery where she worked. She was 19 years old.

He was also preceded in death by his parents, his wife Grace in 2005, and two brothers, Lloyd and Earl.

Tony is survived by two sons, William “Bill” Winberg of South Jordan, Utah, and Randal “Randy” Winberg of Littleton, Colo.; a brother, Raymond, of Fort Morgan, Colo., and a sister, Ellen Erickson of Roswell, N.M.; four granddaughters, three grandsons, and several great-grandchildren.

Services were held on Sept. 6 at Horan and McConaty Chapel. Interment took place at Crown Hill Cemetery.
