Obituary of Stanley Joseph Winters
WINTERS, Stanley Joseph
February 6th, 1926- January 8th, 2023
It is with deep sorrow in our hearts that we announce the passing of Stanley J. Winters, father, husband, grandfather, great grandfather, and a friend to many. He leaves behind his beloved wife of 28 years, Carol Anne and joins his predeceased wife of 48 years, Geraldine (Gerry), and his parents Mosse Winters and Angela McTaggert.
Stanley was a loving father to 5 children and their partners; Randy and Anne, Rick and Cathy, Christine, Patricia and Malcom, the late John (2015) and Rick. He was also a stepfather to Marc, Robert and Bonnie, and Mary Katherine. He was a grandfather to 10 grandchildren and their partners; Jessica , Jamie (2009), Patrick, Christopher and Natalie, Nick and Sarah, Bill, Angela, John and Lindsay, Mitchell, and Taylor. He was also a step-grandfather to 7 grandchildren, Amanda, Jacob, Michael, Sarah, Emma, Justin, and Samantha.
Stanley joined the Air Force and trained to be a navigator, never serving as the war ended. He began to work in the Detroit area as a designer for restaurant equipment. He later joined Jack Hardy as a draftsman in the commercial and retail food industries. After completing a few projects with Jack he was asked to join Jon Greenberg and Associates, eventually becoming partners and friends with Jon as they built a successful design/ build business specializing in leased spaces in Shopping Malls.
He and Carol Anne enjoyed travelling together for many years, as they accompanied one another on art exhibits and worked together to enjoy life. They volunteered together at Willistead Manor, where many memories and friendships were made.
Stanley was a caring, loving, and gentle soul who spoke words of wisdom. He often had humour in his voice, yet a sternness in his eye, and he always knew how to make anyone feel supported and loved.
He taught his family to work hard, and never give up. He took special interest in all of his grandchildren’s lives, and was proud of them, always.
We wish to thank the hardworking and caring team of PSW’s, Nurses and Doctors who provided gracious care for Stanley in his final journey.
