Clay was born in Bryan, Texas to his parents L. E. “Skeeter” and Helen Marie Viereck Winder on July 27, 1952. Clay was always an adventurous man, exploring and seeking out new adventures with his family and friends. Clay was a true Brazos County person from his early beginning to fulfilling his career goals. Clay enjoyed baseball his whole life. In his younger years he practiced ball with his mom who would then become his greatest fan. Clay passed that talent of baseball on this own family, as coach for Nikki, Dusty, Shaun, and his grandson Colten. Clay’s greatest loves in life were his children and grandchildren. He spent many days and months watching them play ball or were out hunting together. His grandchildren were truly his proudest accomplishment in his life. Clay was “old time” law enforcement. He was an agent for TABC and served as law enforcement agent over thirty years here in Brazos County. His family, friends and law enforcement community will truly miss a man of Clay’s demeanor.
His parents, Skeeter and Helen Marie, both precede him in death.
Clay is survived by his daughter, Nikki Winder; his sons, Dusty Winder and Erin Prihoda, Shaun and wife Michelle Winder; Clay’s grandchildren, Colten Winder, Coy Winder, Shelby Winder, and Cameron Winder; his cousins, Irvin Todd, John Wayne and wife Dorothy Todd, Hoyt Todd, Jason Todd, J.T. Todd, Bobby and Margaret Hudson and daughter Debbie Hudson; Clay’s close friend Barbie Lewis and her children Dallas and Colby; and the mother of his children Janet Lewallen.
In lieu of flowers Clay’s family asked that your generous donation be given to a local Law Enforcement Agency in his memory.
