Dee R. Winterton was born in Midvale, Utah, in 1935. As a young man, he worked closely with his father on the family cattle ranch, raising prize-winning steers.

As a professor in the Dance Department at Brigham Young University, Dee worked closely with the Lamanite Generation, the Young Ambassadors' touring group, and musical theater productions. Dee also oversaw choreography of revues at Sundance, Utah for several years. He and his wife, Maureen, were the parents of four sons, Brad, Greg, Rolph, and Jay Dee. Dee was killed in an automobile accident on October 15, 1984.
