WINTER, Gene - It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Gene Winter on July 2, 2016 at the age of 93.
He was predeceased by his loving wife Bertha of 68 years, in June 2015.
He will be greatly missed by his daughters, Patty and her husband Scott, Kathy and her husband Ted, Maryanne who left us too soon in 2006 and her husband Carmen, his son Bob and wife Jenny, grandchildren, Cindy, Barbara and family.
He will be fondly remembered by brothers, Joe and Dorothy Winter, and John and Donna Winter and other family members and friends.
Gene was a World War II Veteran, an award-winning tobacco farmer and an electrician at National Steel Car. Gene was a great dad, he loved the family cottage at Long Point, fishing, boating, playing cards and working in his flower and vegetable gardens. He was a wood carver, played and listened to music and he could fix and build just about anything. He was an animal lover and loved mother nature in all its beauty.
Cremation has taken place and a private family celebration of Gene's life will follow.
Thank you to the wonderful staff at the Aldershot wing at the Brant Centre for taking care of our dad. For those who wish, memorial donations in honour of Gene may be made to the SPCA.
