Martin Clay Winslett

May 2, 1956 — March 3, 2023

 

Martin Clay Winslett passed away on March 3, 2023 in Columbia SC, where he lived and worked for the last 30 years of his life. He was 66 years old. Born May 2, 1956 in Fort Worth, Texas to Vernon & Mary Mae Winslett.

Clay was a 1975 PHS graduate, where he excelled at the sport he loved from the time he could walk--golf. Clay was a top member of the PHS golf team and qualified for the traveling team his junior and senior years. He then attended college at UNT and, along with several other close friends from his PHS graduating class, became an active member of Theta Chi Fraternity. 

Clay graduated from UNT in 1980 with a business degree and then started his career as a commercial real estate broker in Dallas.

He eventually moved to Columbia, South Carolina, where he became an extremely prolific retail real estate developer. He founded Clay Winslett Retail Development, a company he owned and successfully operated for most of his adult life.

About 20 years ago, Clay was diagnosed with a form of throat cancer that necessitated fairly radical radiation therapy. He struggled with various, serious complications from that radiation treatment for the remainder of his life.

The health-related challenges he faced over the years were beyond anything a person should ever have to endure but Clay consistently demonstrated courage and strength in the face of those obstacles, and he absolutely refused to feel sorry for himself.

Clay is survived by, brother, Lane Winslett of Corning, California; sister, Lisa and husband, Tracy Kensing of Arlington, Texas; numerous nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.

A Funeral Service for Clay will be held at 2 p.m. on Thursday, April 20, 2023, at Brown Owens & Brumley Family Funeral Home Fort Worth, Texas. Reception to follow after service at the Funeral Home.  Clay's eulogy will be delivered by his cousin Greg Winslett.
