Gary A. Winship, a lifelong resident of Sugar Loaf, New York, entered into rest after a long courageous battle with cancer on Wednesday, March 17, 2021 at his home, surrounded by his loving family. Gary was born in Warwick on January 13, 1959, to Charles A. Winship and Gertrude Walling Winship. He graduated from Warwick Valley High school, where he played baseball and football. His competitive nature made watching Yankee and Giants games interesting. Gary, along with his brother Kevin owned and operated Warwick Valley Heating, Inc. for 33 years. He had many long-standing customers who referred to him as a friend. He was a lifelong member of the Sugar Loaf Engine Company. He was a nature lover and enjoyed being out in his yard, but nothing was more important to Gary then spending time with Anne Marie and grandson Michael. Under his grumpy disposition he had a true heart of gold. People will remember Gary for the help he showed anyone in need. Gary will be loved and missed and forever in our hearts. He is survived by the love of his life Anne Marie McKevitt and sons, Matthew and wife Kara, Patrick and wife Cheryl, Timothy and girlfriend, Hana, and grandson Michael, who loved his "Grumpa".
