Elton Winton, or 'Candyman' passed away on June 6. He was frequently at the Chickasha PWSM and attended the MTFCI tour in Rochester, MN.
He also wrote an article for the Model T Times about driving his Model T to California when he graduated high school.
He was the founder of Winton's Candies in Port Aransas, TX.
A good friend who always had a story to share and if you were lucky, some candy. He will be missed.

Thanks Frank, What a wonderful man Mr. Winton was. That drive after high school from Bowie TX through the American West was an exciting read indeed. And when my wife and I dropped by his candy store in Port A several years ago, he surely did load us down with bags of free candy. What a guy! Not to mention the 40+ year old live rattlesnake he kept in a large terrarium in the candy store for the tourists. Yep, we did lose another great one..
