Winston Monroe Baldwin passed away at the age of 63 in Centerville, Ohio on January 30, 2022. He was born on August 29, 1958 in Washington, D.C. to Donald and Jody Baldwin. Winston graduated from St. Stephen’s High school in 1976. In 1979 Winston joined the Seventh-day Adventist Church after attending a Revelation Seminar. While still in school at the University of Richmond he added a religion minor to his History degree hoping to graduate and become a pastor. A few years after he graduated with his Bachelor’s degree he decided to move to Michigan and attend Andrews University Theological Seminary. He would go on to graduate from Andrews University with a Masters in Divinity in 1989. Over the next three decades Winston would work as a pastor and teacher for the Seventh-day Adventist Church culminating in over 18 years as the senior pastor for the Centerville Seventh-Day Adventist Church.
Winston had a passionate love for the gospel and preaching the three angels’ messages of Revelation 14. Over the course of his life he believed in the soon coming of His Savior. And it was his greatest wish to see those that he loved in the New Jerusalem.
If you knew Winston you would know that he also had a love of golf and wouldn’t mind reminiscing over a favorite scene of Seinfeld. If you happen to be in his car you might have heard Fernando Ortega singing sweetly about the Lord they both loved so much.
Winston is survived by his loving wife of 24 years, Katherine; children, Kyle and his wife Elizabeth Baldwin, Emily and her husband Carson King, Lissy and her husband Mathew Letchworth; as well as grandchildren, Matthew and his wife Andrea, and Lex, Bella, Olivia, and Judah, Levi, and Ava, Chase, Rex, Calla, Violet, and Hilton; his sister, Elizabeth and her husband Rick Chryst, his brother Alan and his wife Marianna Baldwin; his parents, Don and Jody Baldwin, as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
Family will greet friends 3-6 on Saturday, February 5 at Centerville Seventh-day Adventist Church, 456 W Spring Valley Pike, Dayton, OH 45458. Funeral services will begin at 6pm at the church. Winston will be laid to rest privately at David’s Cemetery.
