RIVERTON — Kerry Milo Winkel passed away in his home and returned back to live with his Heavenly Father Aug. 29, 2019, at the age of 43.
Kerry and his twin brother, Kody, were born in Richfield, to Kim and Susan Winkel June 5, 1976. Kerry loved being a twin; he and Kody were lifelong best buddies.
Kerry graduated Richfield High School in 1994, went on to SUU, and later he attended Temple University where he graduated with his Doctor of Dental Medicine in 2003. He started his career in Sandy in 2004 and later started his own dental practice called Bonneville Dental.
Kerry married Cami Turner in 1996 and together they had three children and later divorced. Kerry married Stephanie Gadegaard Oct. 29, 2010, welcoming her three children into his life and together having two more children.
Kerry was an amazing man with the kindest heart. He was always so giving and generous, bringing anyone and everyone into his home and life - just don’t take his Häagen-Dazs or drink his Mountain Dew. Although Kerry’s hobbies included hunting, golfing and fishing with his friends and family, you would most often find Kerry supporting his children at their football games, cheer competitions, soccer games and baseball. He was the best dad.
Kerry is survived by his wife, Stephanie; and their children, Braylon, David, Braxton, Carter, Baylee, Lettie, Jade, Nixxon and Elsie. Also his parents, Kim and Sue Winkel; in-laws, Carolyn and Steve Ludlow; and siblings, Kody (Kassie) Winkel, Jerico (Joelle) Winkel and Kellie (Justin) Thompson.
