Robert (Bob) Winzenried, born July 20, 1936, to Harold and Marcella Winzenried in Farm Country. When he was young, he lived without any running water or electricity. He was wheelchair-bound due to polio.
After graduating from the one-room Palestine School in Eagle, he worked both on the farm and in construction. During this time, he opened Swinging ”W” Ranch, making it one of the largest riding stables in the Midwest. After retiring from the stable business in 2006, he enjoyed farming and time with his wife and his two loyal rat terriers, Chicky and Luna.
He is survived by his wonderful wife, Ellie (Walker) Winzenried of Eagle; his daughter, Marie Winzenried (Larry); his sons Guy Winzenried (Chrissy) of Florida and Gabe Winzenried (Cindy) of Eagle; and stepson Andrew Walker of Florida. He was the proud grandfather of Max Mac-Donald (Britney), Myles Winzenried and Gayla Gibson and great-grandson Mac McDonald, all residing in Florida. Bob also wanted to say good-bye to Shelly Bruce, Josh McDonald, Zach Jachowicz, Bob Humphrey, Alec Kolasinski, and all the wonderful young folk that touched his life.
