On Tuesday, May 4, 2021, Dennis Winkler of Tyndall passed away at the Beausejour Hospital at the age of 78 years.
Dennis was born on November 8, 1942 in Winnipeg and spent his life in Tyndall. He was predeceased by his parents, Anton and Mayzie. He is survived by his sister Merle (Pat), niece Lana, nephews, Mark, Brent and Dean and godson Jayson.
He will be sadly missed by all his family and friends.
Dennis was affectionately known in his youth as "Shako". He was an avid outdoorsman and enjoyed hunting, fishing and snowmobiling. He was also a very proud member of the Shriners and Masons.

Condolences & Memories (1 entries)

  • Condolences to Dennis' family and many friends. Dennis' honesty, integrity and adventurous spirit will be missed beyond words. From seeing what was over the next hill in his beloved Canadian Shield, to researching gold exploration, to Mcgyvering anything that needed repair in the bush. His exceptional memory in recounting past adventures, while sitting next to a warm wood stove. Words of wisdom and acts of kindness towards others were his trademark. A good person that we had the privilege of sharing a friendship. Cam and Alicia and family. - Posted by: CAMERON NEURENBERG (Friends) on: May 16, 2021
