Winston Theodore Treadway

Obituary Notice

Winston Theodore Treadway, age 38, of Little Rock, beloved son of Lou Ellen and Ted C. Treadway, and cherished brother of Ellen and Amy, died Saturday, September 17, 2005. He was a kind, compassionate, and generous young man who enjoyed spending time with his family and friends.

Winston was a communicant of Trinity Episcopal Cathedral where he was a member of the Matin Choir and an acolyte. Winston graduated from Little Rock Central High School in 1986 and later earned a degree in institutional food service from Quapaw Vocational Technical School in Hot Springs.

At age 14, after initiating an Arkansas Rice Depot project to feed the hungry with Scout Troop #27, Winston achieved the highest rank of Eagle Scout. He also enjoyed Boy Scout Outward Bound excursions in New Mexico and Minnesota.

Winston had many hobbies including duck hunting with his father in DeWitt, traveling with his family, and collecting antiques. He especially treasured his oil paintings created by his paternal grandmother and art pieces given to him by his maternal grandmother.

Winston was a gifted cook and storyteller. He baked poppy seed and rum cakes from scratch, and he enjoyed dinners and playing bingo with his dear friends and neighbors at the Kathleen Peek Apartments. They all will miss him greatly.

Winston will be remembered always with deep love, admiration, and respect from everyone he knew. He had great empathy and concern for others, especially those in need of a friend. Winston’s keen sense of humor and worldly perspective will be greatly missed.

Funeral services will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, September 21 at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral officiated by the Very Reverend Henry Hudson. Burial will follow in Roselawn Memorial Park. Winston’s family will receive visitors at 1921 North Monroe following the services.
