John B. Winn, 89, of Annandale died peacefully, at home Friday, Dec. 20, 2013.

Winn was a veteran of three wars. A GySgt (Gunnery Sergeant), he was retired from the United State Marine Corps. He was a veteran of World War II, Korea and Vietnam.

A memorial service was held Thursday, Dec. 26, at 2 p.m. with visitation one hour prior to service, at Dingmann Funeral Chapel, Annandale, Interment was held Friday, Dec. 27, at Fort Snelling National Cemetery.

He is survived by his wife of 69 years, Marvel; sons John, Michael (Linda), daughter Kathleen (David); grandchildren, Lisa (Nesi), Alison, Laura (Bo), John, Kristie (Randy), Michael (Elizabeth), Erin; great-grandchildren Matthew, Brianne, Andreas, Aris, Ana, Chase, Marissa, Kathryn, Grace, John, Caroline, Jayden, Donovon; great-great-grandson Mandor.

John was a member of the U.S. Marine Corps Rifle and Pistol Teams, competing and winning honors at Camp Perry, Ohio, for many years, and was also a member of the prestigious Infantry Trophy Rifle Team.

He was an avid hunting and fishing sportsman, he enjoyed teaching hunter's safety, especially to children, at the Annandale Conservation Club for many years, and he also enjoyed the competition and comradery of its members. Continuing his interest in firearms, in retirement, he attended the Camp Perry National Matches as a Volunteer Range and Chief Range officer for 20 years.

He was happiest at home on the lake with his family, and working with pride in his yard and enviable gardens. He was a loving, gentle giant with the children, and had a hearty laugh and handshake for friends. John was a very grateful and dedicated "friend of Bill W." for more than 20 years. He will be sadly missed by all who shared his life.
