He was buried at the Pioneer Plot in the City Cemetery in Sacramento. The funeral Procession began from Pioneer Hall on 7th Street and included members of every Fraternal body and civic organization as well as the entire congregation of Grace Church. This remarkable individual who had been instrumental in the founding of so many civic, religious and fraternal organizations, was memorialized by the city of Sacramento with the naming of Winn Park at 28th and P Streets (dedicated by the NSGW August 8, 1917), and the A. M. Winn Elementary School at 3351 Explorer Drive (dedicated by the NSGW and NDGW on April 8, 1962). (Submitted on November 26, 2008.)
