Winston was born August 22, 1928 in New Liskeard, Ontario. He passed away on April 14, 2013 in Kelowna, B.C.
After leaving home at an early age, Winston began his long logging career in northern Ontario where he was foreman by the age of 16. He continued in the logging business as he moved west to the northern interior of B.C. He had many fond memories of building roads and logging along Babine Lake.
He loved to spend time with his grandchildren, working in his vegetable garden or putting his boat in the water to go fishing.
Winston is survived by two of his four sisters, Aletta Hagger of Mississauga, Ontario, and Dora Elliot of Scarborough Ontario. He will be deeply missed by his daughters, Linda Seagrave (George) of Ponoka, Alberta, Jeanie Thompson of Kamloops, B.C., Debbie Gilker (Bill) of Prince Rupert, B.C., Wendy (Bruce) Northrup of Kelowna, B.C., Judi Adema (Andy) of Smithers, B.C. as well as 15 grandchildren and two great grandchildren.
A memorial tea will be held on August 17, 2013 at the Old Anglican Church Hall. All who knew Winston are welcome to join his family between 2 and 4 p.m. as we honor his life.
