Woe has befallen the Winget clan. Our beloved patriarch has perished. On Thursday, September 30, 2021, lingering heart related issues claimed the life of Donald Winget.
Born in Dover, NJ on April 19, 1930, he was the youngest of four boys. He was raised by his mother, Marion Winget, in Rockaway and graduated from Rockaway High School in 1947.
Without the advantage of knowing or benefiting from a father of his own, he realized that hard work was the ticket to success. In 1951 he married his high school sweetheart, Betty Jane (nee Rinehart). He served in the United States Army from 1951-1953 during the Korean Conflict. After building a house in Mt. Fern, he and Jane spent the next 70 years there building a life together. During that time, they were blessed with five children.
Survived by his loving wife Betty Jane Winget. In birth order and surviving him are his son, Donald Brian and wife Barbara; son Charles Robert; son David Alan and wife Jen and their children, Alex, Abbey, Adam and Ava; son William Daniel and wife Elaine and their children, Noah and Eric; daughter Wendy Beth (Cleffi) and husband Andrew and their children Donovan, Isabella, and Chloe.
