Roger Max Winters, age 75, of Springfield, MO passed away on April 11, 2018 in Amarillo, Texas. He died surrounded by his loved ones.
Max was born on March 30, 1943 in Lone Wolf, Oklahoma to Gayle and Laverne (Osborne) Winters. Max married the love of his life, Sandra (Johnson) Winters in 1970 after meeting on a blind date. They were both students at Oklahoma State University. Together, Max and Sandra made a formidable team founding multiple successful businesses. Their first was the Pitchfork Youth Camp. From there they started Big Cabin Wholesale Gifts branching into real estate, livestock feed commodities, and lastly, a return to his roots, farming. Despite many achievements, Max would happily tell you that his greatest joy came from his grandkids. Max spent the majority of the first three years of Jack Winters’ life on the floor just so he could stay at eye level with his grandson. Theirs was a special bond.
Max is survived by his two sons, Cody Max and Roger Lee Winters, his daughter in law, Jennifer Winters, his grandchildren, Jack and Finley Winters, his brother, Glayde Winters and his sister, Brenda McCormick. Max has many loved nieces, nephews, and cousins. He was preceded in death by his parents and wife, Sandra Winters.
