HAMILTON — Andrew Lee Winningham, 60, of Hamilton, passed away suddenly at home on June 20 from heart complications.
He was born in San Diego, California, to Norman and Mary Ann Winningham and spent his childhood as a Navy brat in several different California towns. While still a teenager he moved to the Bitterroot Valley with his family where he spent the rest of his life working as a jack-of-all trades — working construction, as a short-order cook and, most recently, as a proud breeder of Great Dane dogs. He delighted in learning new skills, from acrylic painting to playing the trumpet. He is survived by his mother, Mary Ann; his three sisters, Lisa Winningham (Ray Lotter), Susan Bartel (Gordon), Sharon Winningham; brother, Jarret Winningham (Alicia); three nephews, a niece and five great-nieces/nephews.
His graveside service will be held at Grantsdale Cemetery at 2 p.m., June 25. His memorial will be held at Barnabas Ministries, 273 Fairgrounds Rd., Hamilton, at 3 p.m., June 25, with a reception following.
