We are very sorry to learn of Winston's death. We along with others spent a lot of time together. Winston enlisted the Army shortly after I enlisted in the Navy. Often comparing notes while on leave.We met Winston & Winalda again in Penticton where Winalda was the nurse at the Ironman Turnaround for the run.
Rest in peace my old friend.

Leanne, Glen and family. Throughout our many years of friendship with Winston it was so good to always be able to pick up where we left off whenever he & Wendy returned to Carman or called from Iqualauit or wherever their travels took them. We had so many good visits over the last few years. He took such good care of Wendy and found life difficult after her passing. We’ll miss him. He was a steadfast friend, an adventurer, a proud father & grandfather! Thinking of you!

Our thoughts and prayers are with Leanne, Glenn and family. We have so many good memories we will cherish. He was such a loving and caring man who loved his life and his family. He missed his loving wife Winalda and now they are together again. We will miss you both dearly. Rest In Peace dear Uncle Winston.

My condolences to the McDonald family. Sister Marlyn Cutting Waddell and I were raised 3 houses from the McDonald family and knew Dorothy and the boys well. We were the neighbourhood kids! Winston and Harry actually were in Germany when Murray and I were married and sent us congratulations at the time. A very nice family to have as neighbours.
