In Loving Memory

Winkler, Robert Joseph

Robert Joseph Winkler, aged 67, passed away May 15, 2023, at his home in St. Louis, Missouri.
Robert was born in St. Louis on March 2, 1956, to Raymond and Elaine (whom preceded him). He is the oldest sibling of seven and survived by; Teresa, Rick(Kathy), Debby(Joe)and David. He is preceded by siblings Doug(Brenda)and Roger.
He is survived by and the beloved father of; Krissy, Kathy, Jill(Dan), Lara(Eric) and Robby(Jamie).
Robert was the adoring grandfather of; Kyler, Hailee, Kalob, Cailey, Braydon, Noah, and Lily.
In his youth, Rob enjoyed time with his siblings, including his love of playing such sports as; baseball, football, and soccer.
Rob would go on to graduate from Southwest Missouri State with a degree in Chemistry. He would ultimately use his education as a well respected and dedicated chemist for The Kiesel Company.
Rob’s passions included; his family, being a devout Catholic and attending church, waterfowl hunting, fishing, watching and discussing sports.
But, most of all, what brought joy to his life was spending time with his family, especially his children and grandchildren. He was thrilled to be a part of any moment of their lives. Especially, spending time at their various athletic games. He made it a point to never miss one, no matter how busy he may have been.
Rob had many great qualities, but his greatest, was that of a doting and adoring father, grandfather, brother, uncle, cousin and friend. He lived his life in the teachings of the Bible and the word of Jesus. He was a generous and caring individual who taught everyone he knew a lesson in humility and love.
Rob would sacrifice any of his possessions for anyone who was in need. He never asked for anything for himself. No kinder soul has ever graced us with their presence. The world was a brighter place because of him. His family, and everyone who knew him, are better people because of him.
Rob, you have now arrived at your beloved pearly gates of heaven to be with our revered God. Your long road has come to end, but you will never be forgotten or your grace on this earth taken for granted. You will forever be in our hearts and loved beyond measure.

  1. I am saddened to hear of Rob’s death. We met back in the early 70’s in Victoria , Mn. when he and Rick came to visit Fr. Ronald Dinn. Several of us spent the week with the guys. Rob has sent a Christmas card every year since then and when I didn’t receive one in 2023 I wondered if something happened and I have my answer. He never wrote much and in the last years he only signed his name. My deepest sympathy to all.
