'He was a good friend, and well-liked. He liked people.'

Mr. Winebrenner loved to fish in an acre-size lake he dug on his property and stocked with channel catfish, blue gill, crappies and bass.

He also grew vegetables, planted fruit trees and built and flew model airplanes.

Mr. and Mrs. Winebrenner celebrated 32 years of marriage Feb. 25.
