WINTERS; Delbert Leslie
To send flowers to the family or plant a tree in memory of Delbert Leslie Winters, please visit our Heartfelt Sympathies Store.
Peacefully at Grey Gables Nursing Home, on Sunday, December 30, 2018 in his 80th year. Beloved husband of Ruthe of Maxwell. Loving father of Susan (Gord) Johnston of Vandeleur and Wayne (Susan) Winters of Maxwell. Delbert will be greatly missed by his grandchildren Jeremiah, Jonah, and Laura. Predeceased by brother Rae and infant sister Olive.
Delbert lived on the 4th line near Maxwell all his life. He spent many years working as a builder and mason but after some time, was guided to his calling of counselling. He applied lessons learned from his own struggles to help people with addictions and other needs. As an active member of the Maxwell Community Centre board, he served many years as chairman, having successfully fundraised to repair and maintain the ever loved building. Delbert’s grand presence as the “Mayor of Maxwell” has been greatly missed over the past few years while he’s been living in Grey Gables. May your fond memories serve as a reminder that we can all overcome our battles and challenges with a little bit of help.
The family will receive friends at Fawcett Funeral Home in Flesherton, on Wednesday, January 2nd, 2019 from 6-8pm. Funeral in the Fawcett Funeral Home chapel on Thursday at 11am. Cremation to follow. Lunch at the Maxwell Community Centre following the service. Donations to the Maxwell Community Centre would be greatly appreciated.
