Charles Frederick Winn was born August 12, 1937 on the Winn family centennial farm in Columbus Township and left to be with Jesus from the same farm on Saturday, February 10, 2018.

Charles farmed his entire life beginning with his grandfather, Fred, continuing with his father, Harold, and ending with his daughter, Karyn and her husband, Rod. He married Dorothy Mae Heinrich on September 6, 1958 in Columbus Baptist. They reared, taught, sang, worked and prayed with their five children on the family farm.

Charles received Jesus as his Savior at the age of twelve while attending revival services at his home church, Columbus Baptist, where he faithfully served in many capacities the remainder of his life. He attended the one room "Columbus" school and graduated from Memphis Community Schools in 1955. He went on to complete the MSU Ag Short Course. He was a member of the Army National Guard, attaining the rank of Staff Sargent. Charles was a member and deacon of Columbus Baptist Church, served on the local Child Evangelism Fellowship board for 50 years, and was an active member of the Gideons and St. Clair County Farm Bureau. He was a past member of Youth for Christ, Michigan Milk Producers Association, Dairy Herd Improvement Association, 4-H, and the Memphis School Board.

Charles is survived by his wife of 59 years, Dorothy; their children, Karyn (Rod) McCue, Rachel (Dan) McCue, all of Columbus, Ellyn (Ben) Davey of North Street, Joseph (Angela) Winn of Fort Gratiot and Sarah (Paul) Jones of Columbus; 19 grandchildren; nine great-grandchildren; his brothers, H. Thomas (Cynthia) and Glenn (Tina); sisters-in-law, Julia Winn, Sonja (Wayne) Tucker and Emile Evans; an aunt, Shirley Winn; and many nieces, nephews, cousins. He is also survived by the many, many young men and women who worked for the Winns on their farm over the years. He was preceded in death by his parents, Harold and Mildred (Smith) Winn; mother-in-law, Milly Lohr; and great-granddaughter, Briar Freeman.
