Winston is survived by his wife, Nancy (Lamond); daughters, Erin, at home; Lauren, at home; Lindsay (Shane) Bailey, Glace Bay; parents, Graham and Beth King, Millertown, NL; brother, David (Sue) and his children, Janet (Dohms) and Amy, Fort Saskatchewan, Alta.; sisters, Kathy (Jerry) Porter and her children Jeremy, Nicholas and Laura, Lawrencetown; Wanda (Ted) Newell and her children, Nathan, Zoe and Eli, Jemseg, N.B.; mother-in-law, Evelyn Lamond, Sydney Mines; sister-in-law, Diane (Peter) van der Horden, Halifax.
Winston was born in Saint John, N.B., but moved as a child to Halifax and then to Stellarton, Pictou and New Glasgow. He finished high school in Pictou and worked for a short period of time at Michelin Tire in Granton. He then attended Dalhousie University, graduating in 1976 with a Bachelor of Commerce degree. He began working for the Royal Bank in that same year and continued to do so until the onset of his illness in November 2003. His career with the bank took him to Bedford, St. John's, NL, Truro, Lower Sackville, Musquodoboit Harbour, Clark's Harbour, New Waterford and Glace Bay.
Although Winston was raised in the Salvation Army, he had the opportunity due to his mobility to support various churches. He shared his musical talents in all of these many places, whether this was playing a brass instrument or sharing his love of choral music. Until incapacitated due to illness, he was the director of Knox United Church Choir in Glace Bay, and the treasurer of the Cape Breton Chorale. He had also been the treasurer of the Cape Breton Community Concert Association and at one time a member of the Rotary Club of New Waterford. He was an avid golfer and a former member of the Lingan Golf Club. The many cards and letters Winston received during his illness are a testament to the high esteem in which he was held. His keen sense of humour was appreciated by his family as well as his many friends and co-workers. Even when confined to a bed and robbed of the gift of speech, he was able to bring laughter to a room. His Christian faith was his anchor and since his illness he testified to many people of the wonderful gift of peace that God had bestowed upon him. In accordance with Winston's wishes, cremation has taken place. Visitation will take place Friday, June 18, from 2-4, 7-9 p.m. in V.J. McGillivray Funeral Home, 16 Reserve St., Glace Bay. A service to honour his memory will be held Saturday at 1 p.m. in Knox United Church, Commercial Street, Glace Bay, Rev. Eric Lynk officiating. Donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, the Palliative Care Unit, Victorian Order of Nurses, Knox United Church Choir or a charity of your choice.
