Winston Collins Nunn was born in Glasgow on July 10, 1926 to Walter E. “Doc” Nunn and Marguerite Collins Nunn, and died May 27, 2017. He grew up on Cleveland Avenue and attended Glasgow Schools, playing baseball, basketball and football. After high school, he was proud to serve his country as a U.S. Marine in World War II. Completing his high school credits after the war, he then attended University of Louisville on a football scholarship and played on the 1947 undefeated team. The next year, he returned home, married and started working as a salesman in the family business – Nunn Auto Supply. Winston remained active in sports; bowling, tennis and golf were some of his favorites. He was recently inducted into the Glasgow High School Athletic Hall of Fame, and was so proud to be included. He was active in his church, serving for many years as a Sunday school teacher, deacon, elder and trustee at First Christian Church. Winston also loved his community and gave back in many ways, serving on the Literacy Council, for several terms as a city councilman and two different stints on the Glasgow Recreation Board. He was an avid photographer all of his life, and chronicled many historic events and everyday scenes of Glasgow life through the years.

Besides his parents, he was preceded in death by a sister, Carolyne Sullivan, and two brothers, Walter E. “Mater” Nunn Jr. and Billy Nunn, and a brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Samuel and Sandra York.
