Obituary for Frederick Terry Winters

Age 77, of New Brighton, MN, passed away at home on February 17, 2021.

Freddie became a firefighter and, even after sustaining life-threatening injuries during the strike of Aurora Local 99 (October 1979) he labored for a full 25 years, retiring a decorated and highly respected firefighter. His passion for reading and learning about history, cultures, historical figures, and gardening spoke to his eternally curious and open mind. He was a lifelong Cubs fan and finally got to see them break the curse in 2016. He lived a full and interesting life characterized by putting his family first and the belief that his children and those who came after him would surpass him in knowledge and deed and therefore make the world a little bit better.

Frederick was preceded in death by his sister, Christie.

He is survived by beloved wife of almost 50 years, Carole Ann Winters; children, Heather (Ben) Carroll, and Joseph (Paul) Winters; four grandchildren, Rebecca (Ed) Wendt, Emily Carroll, Meriam Carroll, and Benny Carroll; and one great-grandchild, Edward Dean Wendt III.

A memorial service was held on Saturday, February 20th at Evans-Nordby Funeral Home in Brooklyn Center from 2:00-5:00 pm.

These people are wonderful. They went over and above in every possible way to help us with funeral arrangements, the visitation, service and burial, despite the fact that we had a limited budget. They were patient, kind, and treated us like family. This is a funeral home you can trust. Thank you, Evans-Nordby.
