Father: Isaac Winans
Mother: Anne Robinson
Wife: Blanche Taylor
Cause of death: Arteriosclerotic Heart Disease
Arteriosclerotic heart disease (ASHD), is a thickening and hardening of the walls of the coronary arteries. Sometime between 1918 and 1942, Robert, a postal employee living in Parkersburg, West Virginia, suffered the amputation of all of the fingers on his left hand. There is no evidence on how that happened. By 1955, he was suffering from kidney and heart disease. In September of that year, he suffered a heart attack. He was taken to the State Hospital in Weston, West Virginia, where he died 15 days later on October 5, 1955. He was buried at Odd Fellows Cemetery in Parkersburg, now called Parkersburg Memorial Gardens.
Ironically, Robert's wife Blanche died of the same disease 8 years later, in 1963.
