David Raymond Winecoff Jr., 76, of Kannapolis, passed away peacefully on Sunday, March 14, 2021 at Tucker Hospice House surrounded by his loving family.
David was born on April 11, 1944 in Cabarrus County to the late David Raymond Winecoff Sr. and Mildred Kiser Winecoff.
David was a farmer his entire life. He also worked as a weaver and machine operator at Cannon Mills. He honorably served his country in the United States Army. In his free time, he enjoyed fishing, being outdoors, and taking walks in the woods. He was an animal “charmer” and could get any animal to love him. He also had a good sense of humor and was a prankster. Even though he was a hard worker, he always found time to put family first. He was very devoted to his parents and family and will always be remembered for being a loving husband, father, and friend.
Those left to cherish his memory include his beloved wife of 53 years, Diane Cooper Winecoff; son, David Raymond Winecoff III; daughter, Trina Diane Winecoff; two sisters, Linda L. Winecoff and Sara L. Rodgers; sister-in-law, Sharon O’ Kelly; brother-in-laws, Ronald Cooper and Steve Cooper, and several nieces and nephews.
The family will receive friends on Friday, March 19, 2021 from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Whitley’s Funeral Home. The funeral service will follow at 2:00 p.m. in the chapel of Whitley’s Funeral Home with Rev. Eddie Cook and Rev. Leonard Ewing officiating. Burial will immediately follow the service at Carolina Memorial Park with full military honors provided by the Cabarrus County Honor Guard.
