Jack Weldon (J.W.)  Wininger


Jack Weldon (J.W.) Wininger is now at peace in the arms of God. He died April 5, 2019 in Dallas.
Jack was born September 22, 1981 in Duncan, Okla. to Floyd and Patty (Hawkins) Wininger. He graduated from Duncan High School where he played football and basketball and cherished so many things that make life in a smaller town deeply meaningful. He received a B.A. in Communications in 2004 from the University of Oklahoma, and was a member of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity that gave him a lifetime of brotherhood and friendship. He worked as a land man for a number of organizations spanning the country. His dream job was to be a sports broadcaster, but his die-hard love of the Sooners made him far too biased for that. It never stopped him from talking all things Sooner sports anyway.
Jack fiercely loved others, especially his beloved wife, Paige Power Wininger, and his son, Jack Wesley Wininger of Dallas and his family. He was so proud of his family, and was an amazing husband, father, son, brother, grandson, uncle, nephew and cousin. There is no doubt in our hearts how much he loved us all. He never met a stranger, calling everyone he knew and loved, "my buddy." If you were one of his many, many "buddies" then you know how lucky you were. He made you laugh, he lifted you up and you always knew you had his never-ending support. Most of all, he loved God, who scooped him up and drew him near when life was too much to bear.
He is survived by his wife, Paige, and son Wesley, of Dallas; his parents Floyd and Patty Wininger of Duncan; and his sister, Emily Wininger Callahan, brother-in-law, Jason Callahan, and their children, Emerson and Jennings of Memphis, Tenn. Also, his in-laws, Dave and Shelley Power, sister-in-law Claire Power, and grandmother, Glynda Harwell Carroll, all of Dallas. As well as Aunt Anne Durant and John Ware of Duncan, Okla. and cousin, Crystal Durant, of Burkburnett, TX; also uncle and aunt Gary and Laura Graham and cousins Miller and Grace, all of Dallas. Jack was preceded in death by his grandparents, Jack and Lena Hawkins of Lawton, Okla. and Weldon and Foy Wininger of Duncan, Okla.
A celebration of his life will take place Thursday, April 11, 2019 at 4 p.m. at Highland Park Presbyterian Church in Dallas. Visitation will follow the service at the church.
In honor of his love of OU, flowers with a touch of crimson and cream are welcomed to be sent to the church or Sparkman Hillcrest Funeral Home in Dallas, or memorial donations may be made to the Grant Halliburton Foundation (granthalliburton.org), in support of mental health and suicide prevention, and the Stephens County Humane Society of Oklahoma (stephenscountyshelter.com).

This just breaks my heart. My daughter Kelly and J. W. started Day Care together and he hung out with our neighbor Jarrod Williams. J.W. has always been in our world. I am so sorry for the loss of this wonderful man.
