George Fredrick Wingate Jr. born July 26 1941 to George and Mary Wingate of Tonganoxie, KS.
My wonderful love affair with the cowboy came to an end this morning May 8, 2021 at 6:34 AM. On April 10, 2021, George was diagnosed with AML leukemia. Sadly but true this was a rodeo he couldn’t win. God bless you George Wingate for all the laughter, all the miles we’ve traveled, and all the delicious ribs you have cooked. I will always love you.
George is survived by his wife Carol of 35 years; daughter Joy Mildfelt of Richmond, KS.; sons John Wingate of Fontana, KS and Nason Wingate of Ottawa, KS.; 17 Grandchildren and Many Great Grand Children.
George loved a good Cup of Coffee in the morning, a rare steak and a tall whiskey in the evening. And he loved a damn good horse.
Celebration of Life service will be held Wednesday, May 19, 2021, Miami County Fairgrounds, Paola, Kansas from 5 PM to 8 PM.
A memorial has been established for Southeast Kansas Little Britches Rodeo Association. Memorials may be mailed to 13520 West 1500 Road, Centerville, Kansas 66014.
