His Journey’s Just Begun
Don’t think of him as gone away,
his journey’s just begun,
life hold’s so many facets...
this earth is only one...
Just think of him as resting
from the sorrows and the tears
in a place of warmth and comfort
where there are no days and years.
Think how he must be wishing
that we could know today
how nothing but our sadness
can really pass away.
And think of him as living
in the hearts of those he touched...
for nothing loved is ever lost...
and he was loved so much.

WINSOR, Harry C.– It is with sadness that we announce the death of Harry C. Winsor on February 17 2008, at age 90. Harry is survived by his wife of 55 years, Sylvia; his three children: Roderick (Julie Thorburn), Terry (Megan Clifford) and Barbara (Reno Piccini); and his seven grandchildren: Stephen, Robyn, Christopher, David, Sarah, Emily and Alexander. Harry was born in Musgrave Harbour, Newfoundland, son of the Rev. John and Elizabeth Winsor. In 1944 he was appointed secretary to the fishery products Committee of the Combined Food Board (established by the Allied powers to allocate food supplies during World War II). After the War he remained in Washington, with the International Emergency Food Council and the fisheries division of the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations. He moved to Rome when the permanent FAO headquarters was established there in 1951. It was there that he met and married Sylvia. In 1953 he returned to Newfoundland as a member of the newly-established Newfoundland Fisheries Development Authority and served as a member of the South Coast Commission. In 1964 he rejoined FAO in the Caribbean. He returned to Rome in 1968 as FAO Director of Operations for Fisheries. He was regarded by friends and colleagues around the world as thoughtful, considerate and loyal. He was a principled man of great integrity and generosity, a gentleman to the end who always put others before himself. He cared deeply about his family and was an inspiration and guide to all of them. In his later years, his grandchildren were the focal point of his life. They shared wonderful times with him, particularly during the summers in Haliburton. The family would like to thank the staff at Briton House for their care. Funeral services will be held at the Bedford Funeral Home, 159 Eglinton Ave. W. on Wednesday, February 20 at 1:00 p.m. with a reception to follow. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Alzheimer’s Society.
