John Winchester “Wynn” Rees, 68, of Columbus, passed away June 18, 2013, at Kobacker House after his courageous battle with cancer.
Born October 12, 1944 in Maysville, Kentucky, to the late James Scott and Alleyne Rees, his greatest passion was his family. Wynn loved playing basketball, studied business at Ohio University, and served in the Air National Guard on deployment to Korea. His amazing work ethic began as a child on the family farm and led him to success in the car business, beginning as a repoman and retiring as a dealership owner. Wynn toured the country and the world, but enjoyed the simple things most, like spending time with family, following University of Kentucky sports, reading his Bible, and attending church.
He is survived by siblings, James Scott Jr. (Virginia), Saradelle (Myron), Gayle (Donna), Doug (Phyllis), and Jane (Don); children, Brad (Kelly), Matt (Amy), Alan (Erin), and Lindsay (Justin); grandchildren, Mitchell, Casey, Sam, Jack, Camden, Lillian and step grandson Ethan; numerous nieces and nephews, extended family, friends; beloved pets, Cali and Izzy; and former spouses, Grace, Debra, and Henriqueta.
