Carl “Jr.” Winchell

Carl “Jr.” Michael Winchell, 71, of Janesville passed away peacefully Saturday, March 25, 2017, at home, after a courageous battle with cancer.

After graduation, he moved to Janesville, where he had been employed by GM in various roles until retirement in 1993.

Carl is survived by his daughter, Terri Jo (Tim) Hable of Niles, Mich.; two grandchildren, Michele (Jason) Holcomb, and Jessica Hable (Danny); three great-grandchildren, Randy, Brooklynn and MaKayla; his siblings, Neil (Doris) Winchell of Hazel Green, Wis., Dennis (Sherri) Winchell of Johnson Creek, Wis., Ruthie (Darrell) Parker and Audrey Steidl, both of Wilton, DeEtte (Jim) Thomas of Richland Center, and Debbie (Roger) Campfield of Elroy; and many nieces, nephews; other relatives and friends.

He was preceded in death by his son, Paul Winchell; his brothers, Robert and Eugene Winchell; a sister, Goldie Thomas; and his stepmother, Lucille (Hysell) Winchell.

A Celebration of Life was Wednesday, March 29, at Schneider Funeral Home & Crematory in Janesville.
