Winbourn of this review was reared and educated in this state.

He later spent one year as prosecutor for the government on public land frauds and in 1910 he began the practice of law in Greeley, In the intervening period of eight years he has won for himself a very creditable position at the bar of Weld county, his persuasive eloquence, the logic of his arguments and the strength of his position being potent factors in winning notable success. He is faithful to his clients, fair to his adversaries and candid to the court, and in the trial of various cases which he has handled he has exhibited the possession of every faculty of which a lawyer may be proud-skill in presentation of his own evidence, extraordinary ability in cross-examination, persuasiveness before the Jury, strong grasp of every feature of the case and ability to secure favorable rulings from the judge, combined with unusual familiarity with human nature and untiring industry. For two years he filled the office of county attorney of Weld county. He has also been called upon for other public service, acting for one term as a member of the state senate to fill a vacancy in that body. Aside from his profession he is interested in farming in Weld county and is the owner of a ranch. Robert died 7 JUL 1930 in Denver, Colorado
