The sudden death of George D. Winter, 81, occurred at his home near Pipestone, Minnesota on Thursday evening, May 1, 1969.

He was born, July 12, 1888 at Merrill, Iowa. He was married to Emma Block at Eagan, South Dakota July 5, 1917. He lived and farmed near Pipestone all his married life. His threshing career extended from 1905 to 1944.

After retiring from threshing he set himself the task of building scale models of his equipment. First he built a model of a Case 80 Steam Engine (1 inch to the foot), which occupied three years of his spare time. When he had completed that he built a Water Wagon to the same scale. Finally he set about to build a model Case 36 x 58 grain Separator, to which he devoted another three years of spare time.
