Avery Eugene Wingo, born May 10, 1946 in St. Louis Missouri passed away peacefully at home surrounded by family in Great Barrington Massachusetts on January 1, 2020. Having lived in the Berkshires since 1985, Avery is well known and loved throughout the community by all who met him. He was a carpenter and a mason, and much of his work can be seen throughout the area. He had a wonderful singing voice and loved music, fishing and the outdoors, woodworking in the shop with his great friend Ed Domaney, and he loved to barbeque. His ribs were legendary! Most of all he loved spending time with his family and friends and was always there at the drop of a hat for anyone who needed him.

He is preceded in death by his son; Firman, siblings; Ella, Loyd, Cletus, and Geroid; parents Wilma and Clifford; and his grandparents who raised him, Richard and Avie James.
