He was born in Marion County on April 18, 1933, a son of the late Charles Winemiller and Lula (Davis) Winemiller.

Pat is survived by his loving wife, Louise (Riddle) Winemiller. The couple was married 60 years this Christmas.

He served his country in the U.S. Army active duty and reserve. He retired from the United States Steel plant in Lorain, Ohio, with 30 years of service as a crane operator and foreman.

Pat was a member of the Fairmont Moose. He was a great storyteller, enjoyed playing cards and country music. He was very fond of auction sales and traveling to flea markets.

Also surviving are several nieces and nephews, including a special nephew, Ernest Chase, and a niece, Barbara Southern, who he helped raise; and good friends, Sandra Sliger, Howard Jones and Kris Hunt.

In addition to his parents, Douglas was preceded in death by a brother, Charles Winemiller; three sisters, Phyllis Lewis, Barbara Barnett and Thelma Helms; and two infant sisters.

Mr. Winemiller’s family would like to thank Health South, Ruby Memorial Hospital and Senior Aides of the Marion County Senior Center, especially Mary Beth Gump, for their wonderful care of Douglas during his illness.
