Paul Marvin Winton, 60, a Morrison resident and Rutherford County native, was born Jan. 11, 1961 and died May 7 following an extended illness.

He was the son of the late Howard and Irene Petty Winton.

Mr. Winton is survived by aunts, Jane Winton, Joyce Boswell, Jerelene Wright, Ann Sadler, and Betty Jean Barlow, uncle Carl Winton, several cousins, and special friends, Doc Lewis, Bud Clayborne, Jimmy Rhea, and Hoover Hancock.

From Paul’s family, Paul was considered a special needs child. He was, but he gave back so many things to family and friends that he was a blessing. He loved the July picnic and loved the cake walk and getting cakes to share. He always took all the cakes, cokes, buns, and anything else he won back to the Tullahoma home and shared with three or four other boys. He almost had a smile for everyone and polite to open doors for ladies and elderly people without being told so. He had a special heart for others. He loved Jesus, his church, and family.

Funeral service was held at 1 p.m. Monday, May 10, at High’s Chapel with Jerry Mayo officiating. Burial followed at Summitville Cemetery in Coffee County. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Special Games c/o High’s. Online condolences may be made at
