William “Bill” H. Winter
September 6, 1935 – August 16, 2018
Bill was a true native Californian, born in Los Angeles in 1935. His family moved to the Bay Area in the early 1950s and he never left. He so loved the Los Gatos area that after he bought his first home he never moved. Bill raised five children with his wife of 58 years and delighted in his eight grandchildren. Bill and Pat met in Redwood City where he worked for Ampex Corporation and Pat worked at Stanford Hospital. He spent his career working in the defense industry on many projects designed to protect America and our service men and women. He was active in the Boy Scouts of America; earning his Eagle badge as a young man and later the Scouting Silver Beaver award for his contribution to guiding youth as a leader. To his credit there were numerous Eagles while he was leader of Troop 330. Bill was also very active in the Knights of Columbus, a Catholic fraternal organization that is dedicated to helping those in need. Bill was active volunteering until the day he passed. His unwavering dedication to helping others is an example of how more people should live their lives. He will be missed by all who knew him and all who benefited from his volunteering. Bill passed away peacefully in his sleep.
A celebration life will be held at 2:00 pm on Friday, August 24 at St. Lucy’s Church, Campbell, CA.
In lieu of flowers, donations in his memory may be made to the Boy Scouts of America or the Knights of Columbus-Bishop O’Dowd Council #3474.
