Our prayers are with the family of James. We are sorry to hear about his passing.
We are From St. Henry Catholic Church in Brigham City, Ut. We knew James as he was growing up and active in St. Henry.
He also waited on us when he was working at Western Auto in BC., the store his family ran. We still are using the Freezer we purchased from them in the early 60's.
May God bless his family left behind,
Deacon Bob and Mrs. Robert Bambrick

I was so sad to hear of Jim's passing. I've known Jim since I was in high school in Ogden, Utah. We were both very involved in the CYO organization at the local and state levels and worked on many planning committees, conventions and of course dances and parties together. Jim was always a role model in his faith in God and his leadership and was caring and kind to everyone as well as having a good sense of humor and being a lot of fun. He married one of my best friends from high school, Kathy Willard and they had three beautiful children who I got to meet several times on visits to Utah in the 70's. I was sad when he and Kathy divorced but we all kept in touch off and on over the years. I never had a chance to meet Donna or to re-visit with any of his grown children or his beloved grandchildren but he kept me apprised of all their accomplishments and lives, sent me photos and never failed to tell me how proud he was of his children and grandchildren. In recent years I would get an email or phone call from Jim about every other month and we always had tentative plans to get together--in Denver or Oklahoma, Oregon, Utah or Kansas but sadly none of them worked out including one to take a boat trip on the Mississippi River last summer. I regret I didnt have a chance to reconnect with Jim in person but he will remain in my thoughts, memories and prayers. My sincere condolences to Christy, Michelle, Bradley, all the grandchildren and Rich & Bob. Jim was a good friend and will be greatly missed. God's peace to all of you,
Chris (Dowiatt) Winokur

My privilege to have your Dad and Grandpa as a friend. I called him "Wink". We shared many experiences over the years.
His crowning achievement was raising his children and he spoke often of you. He also had a firm belief in God and his Savior,
Jesus Christ. I will really miss him.
My sincerest condolences

My condolences to the Winklesky family. I was so sad to hear of his passing; as I spoke with him less than a year ago. I met him when I was hired at the U.S. Army FORSCOM Mobilization office in 1999. He was always committed to supporting the Army mission; and mostly involving Mobilization Planning and Mobilization Execution. His background in supporting and developing the automated systems to support Reserve Component units for planning and execution (call up for active duty) were unmatched. He was instrumental in the interface of the entire nation's Reserve Component Automation System (RCAS) Mobilization Planning Data Viewer (MPDV) with the Army's Deployment and Reconstitution Tracking Software to streamline Solder Readiness Processing. We knew him as "WINK", as well as the rest of the Army community! Whenever the commands, military installations needed assistance, 'Wink' was there to help, you could always count on him! He talked about his love of his family. The family should be so proud of his accomplishments and the legacy he left behind! He will be missed, and I enjoyed so much working with him over the years. God Bless him! Bruce Carlson, Cumming Ga
