John (Jack) Steven Winslow passed away suddenly at his home in Cumming, Iowa on May 13, 2021. Jack was born in January 1952, the first son of John and Marian Winslow in Nevada, Iowa. He grew up in Chicago, Illinois; Toronto, Canada; and Des Moines, Iowa. Jack graduated from Valley High School in West Des Moines, Iowa in 1970. Following graduation, he enlisted in the Marine Corps and was stationed in San Diego, California in 1971. LCpl John Winslow was a member of Bravo Co. 1st Battalion, 3rd Marines. Jack, with seven other men, won the Annual Rifle Squad Combat Competition held at Quantico, VA receiving regimental awards and commendations.

Jack returned to Des Moines and earned his BS from Iowa State University. He married the love of his life, Pamela (Stanley) Winslow in 1974. Jack joined the Stanley Family farming business in Cumming for 10 years. He later worked for Massey Ferguson, Ford Motor Credit Co., and Ally Bank. Jack retired in 2019 with his wife of 47 years.

Jack was an avid outdoorsman, enjoying hunting, fishing and boating on family vacations at Lake Okoboji. His grandchildren were the light of his life, spending family time fishing, kayaking, four wheeling and gathering around evening bonfires in their backyard. He was an amazing husband, father and grandfather. His presence will be forever missed.
