Edward C. Winter, 64, died Thursday, January 19, 2017 in the comfort of his home in Mahopac, NY after a fierce battle with Cancer.

He leaves his high school sweetheart and wife of 42 years, Laura Parrilla Winter; his son, Christopher Winter and his wife Robin; his daughter, Katie Winter Butcher, her husband Mark and their two beautiful children Charlie and Lyla.

Edward was one of four children, and the only boy born to Edward and Millie Winter. He is survived by his sisters, Carol, Regina and Liz along with their spouses and children; as well as Laura's mother, Jacqueline Parrilla, and Laura's four siblings, Ellen, Nancy, Joseph and Therese and their spouses and children.

Being born and raised in the heart of Brooklyn, NY in the height of the 60's birthed a love for music and Rock and Roll in Edward. He played a "mean" electric guitar, following after his idol Jimi Hendrix. In high school and college he played in bands with his wife and friends, and in the years preceding his death he cozied up with his son and daughter-in-law for a few personal jam sessions at home.

He lived out his love for numbers as a successful accountant at Texaco, Chevron and Mobius in Westchester, NY. After an early retirement he continued his pursuit of numbers during endless Yahtzee battles with his daughter Katie.

Edward was also a talented athlete in his younger years and was known for his love of baseball. He was an avid Mets fan and was faithful to his favorite team up until the very end. He was known by those closest to him as a quiet man with an exceptionally brilliant mind. He seldom spoke, but when he did, it was always worth listening to. His witty humor and his knowledge of all things drew attention. He also had a love for writing and the ability to craft the most carefully constructed sentences that would turn the most mundane story into the most captivating anecdote.

In addition to his many talents, Edward had a courageous heart. He maintained his sense of humor, never complained, fought harder than hard and sustained his dignity through all life threw at him.

Edward's stairway to heaven will lead him into the arms of his friend and "brother" Gary Greco, his brother-in-law Richard Caruso, his nephew Bobby "Bobbo" Zupitza, father-in-law Joseph Parrilla and his parents, Edward and Millie.

Private Services will be held to honor and celebrate his life.
