Memorial services will be held on Friday, March 19, at 2:00 PM at Grimes Funeral Chapel in Kerrville. Bert was born on November 2, 1933, in Houston to Carroll Sterling Masterson and Bert Farmer Winston, Sr. A fifth-generation Texan, Bert was proud of his Texas heritage as well as the years that he lived in Mexico City. As a child, the family moved to Mexico City where his stepfather, Jack Cowan, was in charge of Westinghouse Mexico. Bert loved Mexico and to this day owned a ranch outside of Uruapan and had many lifelong friends from there. Upon Mr. Cowan’s death in a tragic plane crash, the family moved to Kansas and then eventually back to Houston where his mother later married Harris Masterson, III.
Bert attended The Kinkaid School, The American School in Mexico City, Culver Military Academy, Lamar High School and the University of Houston before entering the Army. He married Lynda Hepinstall, began his family and then joined the Army Reserves before going into investments and real estate. When Lynda died unexpectedly, he married Barbara Wallace and they had four more children. He married Deborah Dieringer Turner in 1993.
Bert loved the Houston Cougars and was an avid supporter of the university where he and his wife set up The Bert and Deborah Winston Scholarship Endowment for athletes at the school. He was also a member of the International Committee for the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo for many years. In 1978 Bert moved to Hunt, Texas where his grandmother had a summer home which the family enjoyed for vacations and during the summers. He lived there until he moved to Segovia, Texas about a year and half ago. Bert owned and operated The Hunt Store for several years in the early 1980’s, served on the Boards for the Sterling-Turner Foundation and the Hill Country Youth Ranch, and was a supporter of Schreiner University, the new Peterson Regional Medical Center, Friends and Faculty of Ingram Tom Moore High School, the Hunt VFD as well as many other charities throughout the state.
Everyone who knew Bert knew what a wonderful sense of humor he had and how much he enjoyed having a good time. Some of his favorite things were collecting and showing classic cars, country swing music, good friends, watching sports, cold beer and Rush Limbaugh. He loved to laugh and always had a twinkle in his eye. Bert was known for being a kind and generous man, music producer, drummer, rancher, investor, philanthropist and genuine human being. What you saw was who he was.
Bert’s legacy will go on and will carry on his spirit of generosity, sense of humor and love for life. He will be greatly missed by his wife, Deborah Winston, his children Chaille Hawkins and husband, Freddie, David Winston and wife Larilyn, Bert Winston, III and wife Pauline, Rosalind Newton, Blake Winston, Phillip Winston and stepson, Tyler Turner. He is survived by his grandchildren: Carroll Schuler and her husband, Zach; Michael Hawkins and wife, Elizabeth; Rocky Winston; Cadi Hawkins; Braylon Winston; Jacob Newton; Erin Newton; Max Winston; Daniel Winston; Sterling Winston; newest granddaughter born this week, Lilah Elizabeth Winston, and great-grandson, Cole Schuler.
