Howard was born on December 7, 1927 in Glendale, OR to Walter and Alice (Barton) Winkelman. He died August 4, 2017 at his home in Bridge.

He leaves behind his wife of 70 years, Lillian Winkelman; his daughter Kathy Huff of Myrtle Point; his son Tom Winkelman of Bridge.  His son David Winkelman preceded him in death. Howard also leaves behind 9 grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren. 

Howard was a veteran of the Navy and later spent most of his life involved in the community. He was a member of the local school board for several years, a founding volunteer firefighter in Bridge, an elder at his church, and a longtime member of the Bridge Grange. For several decades, he was a self-employed log truck driver and was also a member of the Oregon Loggers Association and spent many afternoons volunteering at the museum in Myrtle Point. 

He loved spending his free time gardening, painting, and most of all being with family.

In lieu of flowers, charitable donations in Howard's name can be made to the Bridge Community Church or Bridge Grange.
