Obituary

Tidman Oscar Wintz was born on March 1, 1931 at No 78 Village Corentyne, Berbice, Guyana. He was the son Walter O'Dowd Wintz & Alberta Apanah Wintz. Oscar attended St. Margret's Anglican School in Skeldon (79 Village) and worshipped at All Saints Anglican Church in New Amsterdam.

Oscar began his early life as a painter in Corentyne, Guyana. By the time he migrated to Canada he had become a professional in his field. He excelled in this trade and worked as a journeyman. With diligence, discipline and hard work Oscar became a Master Craftsman. Painting was his passion and love but his skills also included building, remodeling, and construction.

Oscar, fondly referred to as "Scar", met his lifelong love Doreen Bacchus in Guyana in the mid 50's where they lived until migrating to Toronto, Canada in the early 70's. Here they lived a quiet life until her passing in 2011.

Oscar was a jovial man with a great sense of humor. He enjoyed and surrounded himself with family and also loved to entertain. There was never a shortage for generosity in his space. He would give the shirt off his back for anyone who asked or needed it. His hobbies included, fishing as a young man, watching boxing and cricket, listening to country and western music, debating politics with his brothers and writing long letters. Oscar had a strong appreciation and pride for his Guyanese culture.

Oscar is survived by:
His daughter Seeta "Ann" Kumar, his five grand children Shakira, Clarence, Collis, Melinda, Eunita, and predeceased by Reon, twenty great grands and seven great-great grands.
The brother of: Ellen "Elaine", Joseph "John" and Gordon - all deceased
and is survived by Wilfred " Eddie"
Uncle of: Jennifer Jennings, Peta Parkinson, Olivia Wintz,
Michael, Peter, Mark, Richard and Roy Rampersaud, Shirley Noel, Sharon Moore, Orin, Andrew, Mark, Keith, Rickey, Sean, Raymond, and Patrick Wintz and Leila, Rosie, Dawn Wintz.

"Scar" has left us all with fond memories to reflect on and he will be greatly missed.
