As a Fryeburg Academy class mate of Winston's, I remember him as a quietly friendly and pleasant person. He died way too early. May he rest in the Peace that passes understanding

I think Winston might be one of the sweetest guys I ever met! I knew him through my very close friend and chosen mother, Joyce. We all visited together in Quincy on a few occasions and when Winston would get on a bus in Quincy to come all the way out to Chelsea to visit her. Sometimes by surprise! I am in Joyce's home a lot to visit and to clean for her and there are reminders of Winston everywhere. He gave Joyce so many thoughtful sweet little gifts for every occasion. His kindness and generosity of spirit were so apparent. He was so warm and caring and easy to talk with. I cleaned for him a couple of times too and he was so fun to be around even when he wasn't well. It was a true and honest joy to have had the opportunity to help him out, the guy who gave to everyone else, even if it was just a small thing I could do. Wow! What sense of humor he had! When Joyce and I visited him in the hospital that last time, through all his pain he was still cracking jokes! There is so much more I could mention-- the love of his cat, hearing stories of his life and family, sharing good food and laughter, how I'm still kind of disappointed we never did get a chance to listen to old records together. Winston, I am humbled to have known you for the short time I did and I will never forget you! Sending hugs to Heaven (I know you are there)!
