Keith “Pops” Winch, 70, of Port Orange, Florida, passed while being surrounded by his family on March 5, 2017. He was born July 7, 1946, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, to the late Keith Winch, Sr. and Dorothy (Fischer). For over twenty years, Keith owned the Dairy Bar, “Home of the Best Chili Dog in Town”.  Whether Keith was fishing in the Keys, playing golf at the local par-3 course or cheering for his favorite football team, the Pittsburgh Steelers, he shared these times with family and cherished every minute.  Keith is survived by his loving wife, Judi, of 46 years; son, Scott (Valerie); son, Craig; daughter, Cori Barnes (Kurt); daughter, Laci Verduzco (David); brother, Jim (Renee); brother, Kevin; grandchildren, Tyler, Kingsley, Huxley, and Mason, and many other relatives and friends. Keith was an amazing father, husband, grandfather, and friend and will be forever remembered.  During his life, Keith carried this poem, and on behalf of his beloved family, we can be assured that Pops will definitely be a trophy catch!


I pray that I may

live to fish

until my dying day.

And when it comes

to my last cast,

I then most humbly pray.

When in the Lord’s

great landing net

and peacefully asleep

That in his mercy

I be judged

Big enough to Keep.


A Celebration of Life service will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 11, 2017, at the First United Methodist Church of Port Orange.  In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made in memory of Keith to Food Brings Hope; www.FoodBringsHope.org or to First United Methodist Church/Youth Ministries.

    Judi - I have been thinking about you for weeks and praying for your strength - the kind of strength you have exhibited for so many others, you now need for yourself. There are no words when we experience this kind of loss but please know how much I care about you as we all do. I have missed seeing your beautiful self and will see you soon.

    Dear Judi,

    Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Keith and I grew up together and have been friends for over 60 years.
    I know how much he loved you and being together with his family.
    Keith was a great Teammate and friend. I recall fondly our days and times together. He will definitely "be judged big enough to keep". God Bless.
