Larry Dean Winograsky, age 69, of Milner, died at his home on Oct. 24, 2008, surrounded by his family.

He was born on Sept. 26, 1939, in Oskaloosa, Iowa, to Jane and Albert Winograsky.

He moved with his family to Mt. Harris in 1943, where Larry’s father worked in the

mines. He grew up in the Mt. Harris area, and later to Milner after the mines closed

down.

Larry married Judy Lindley on Sept. 25, 1958.

Larry worked in numerous professions. He was a master electrician, pump installer, house builder and water system engineer. He was a brilliant man whom many consulted to solve their building, electrical and water problems.

He enjoyed camping with his family and friends, fishing, GMC and Chevy trucks, building stock cars in his younger days, telling jokes and a good laugh. He loved his family, and enjoyed the family’s large gatherings and meals.

Larry is survived by his wife, Judy; his three daughters: Kathy and husband John Main, Lynn and husband Rick Grant, and Pennie and husband Randy Landon; his mother, Jane Winograsky; two brothers, John and wife Carol, and Dave and wife Pat; his grandchildren, Jamie and husband Chris Carbone, Katie Hallman, Cali Grant, Nick Grant, Spencer Landon and Abby Landon; and his great-grandchild, Anthony Carbone.

He was preceded in death by his father, Albert.

Interment took place at Clark Cemetery, followed by a celebration of his life on Oct. 28 at Saddleback Ranch.

Memorial contributions may be sent to the Northwest Colorado Visiting Nurse Association or Hospice at P.O. Box 776090, Steamboat Springs, Colo., 80477.

Albert M. Nickerson, age 83, of Show Low and Mesa, Ariz., died Oct. 24, 2008, at RTA Hospice in Lakeside.

He was born to Merritt and Freda (Gneiser) Nickerson on their farm near New Raymer, Colo., on March 20, 1925.

Al proudly served his country in the U.S. Marine Corps during World War II, where he fought the battle of Iwo Jima. After the war, he returned to the Colorado farm where he was raised, and ran a successful wheat farm until his retirement.

Among other things, Al enjoyed hunting, fishing and water skiing. In his later years, golf became a passion that consumed much of his time. He spent his retirement years in Arizona, where he had homes in Mesa and Show Low.

He is survived by his wife Joanie; son Keith; two daughters, Linda Nickerson and Patty Nutt; grandchildren Eric Nickerson, Mike Nickerson, and Tracey Howard; great-grandchildren Nicholas, Megan, Alison, Emily, Mia, Ella and Spencer; and a sister, Marjorie Crosby.
