Dr. Volker G. Winkler was a consummate teacher and mentor in the healthcare field. He helped advance medical services in the community, and tirelessly inspired others to experience the joy of physical exercise. One of his greatest loves was swimming, and among his fondest memories were the hours he spent teaching others to swim in the Gaines Pool on the Bethel University campus.

An indoor, year-round facility that is open to the public, Gaines Pool is in desperate need of refurbishment to become the state-of-the art aquatic center that Dr. Winkler always envisioned. The Winkler family requests that, in lieu of flowers, all memorial donations be made to The Volker Winkler Keep Moving Forward Fund. Your support will improve the health and increase the enjoyment of students and members of our community for many years to come.

Thank you for your generosity,

The Family of Dr. Volker G. Winkler
