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.

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.
