Timothy Jack Winget, 66
Gentle soul and beloved brother, uncle and friend, Timothy Jack Winget, 66, passed away in his home on May 13, 2018. He was born July 18, 1951 in Salt Lake City, Utah. Tim was the son of Clain and Lucille (Bingham) Winget.
Tim attended and graduated from Hill Crest High School of Salt Lake City, Utah, class of 1969. He was known for being quite the football player until knee injuries ended his playing days. He then continued his education at the University of Utah where he studied philosophy, art and literature.
Although Salt Lake City was Tim’s home, he moved to the Silver Valley in 2012 to take care of his father. Family was very important to Tim.
Throughout the years, Tim found work in retail sales but mainly worked in the landscaping industry. He enjoyed the outdoors and had a passion for making things beautiful. He was a proud member of the Arbor Day Foundation.
Tim was quite the artist. He loved to paint on tea stained paper, woodwork, and had a real talent in photography. Some of his work included flowers, trees, and his favorite bird- woodpeckers. His finest photographs are of his family members, especially of his beloved mother. It has been said that he had a knack for capturing her beauty. Several members of his family hold one, if not more, of Tim’s artwork. Tim also enjoyed working on cars, especially cleaning them up and making them beautiful again.
Tim is survived by his sisters Nancy (Arlen) Lish of Kingston, Idaho, Julie (Mike) Carroll of Salt Lake City, Utah; his brothers Terry Clain (Kathy) Winget of Salt Lake City, Utah, and Kip (Teri) Winget of Spanish Fork, Utah; as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Tim was preceded in death by his parents and his dear friend Tim.
The family will be holding a private celebration of Tim’s life at a later date.
