Dewain William Winget, devoted and loving husband, father, son-in-law, uncle, godfather, friend, cousin, brother, and son left this earth on April 28th, 2022. His adventures continue where we cannot go but his memory and influence continue to impact everyone he touched in a life that ended too soon.
Dewain was born in Murray, Utah on February 27th, 1976, the first son of Sherral Dan Winget and Valarie Corbett Winget. With high spirits and endless energy, Dewain threw himself into everything he did. Whether it was playing guitar in a band or building a treehouse, his enthusiasm and creativity inspired and encouraged those lucky enough to join him.
Dewain's long career as a heavy equipment operator with Noland and Son Construction is a reflection of who he was: a builder.
With dedication, devotion, unconditional love, and acceptance, Dewain built a family he took great pride in.
While playing music and cracking jokes, he built tree houses and snow forts. He was helping shape the lives of his children, nieces, nephews, and many other children who came into his life.
Welcoming everyone into his home as part of the family, Dewain's laughter, caring heart, and acceptance of everyone built his house into a home.
His impulsive and adventurous nature led him to places and experiences that only the most courageous get to see.
Dewain was an ocean of deep thought, knowledge, and emotion. With passion, he led us into a world of music, film, art, skateboarding, and the great outdoors.
Dewain's legacy teaches us to live our lives to the extreme. To share through artistry and creation the undertakings we put our whole hearts and souls into.
Dewain’s influence and teachings will live on through his children. Each time they hear his favorite songs, go hiking or camping, pick up or hear the sound of a guitar, or add a cool rock to their rock collections, they will be reminded of Dewain.
Dewain is survived by his best friend and wife, Samantha Thomas Winget; his daughters, Sierra Gail Winget, Mykell Sky Arviso-Yazza (Cisco Rodriguez), and Myryka Rain Arviso-Yazza; his son, Gager Dewain Winget; mother-in-law, Penny Latimer Thomas; and his adoring godsons, Dallas Canyon, Kruze Jerome, and Karter Dean Merril. He is preceded in death by his father-in-law, Kevin Elwood Thomas.
We are happy to join together and honor Dewain’s memory in a Celebration of Life on May 10th, 2022 at 6:30, Lone Peak Park Indoor Pavilion: 10140 S 700 E, Sandy, UT 84070.
Please bring your skateboards and scooters and come ready to rock on.
