Obituary

Guilderland- Carter Allen Andersson-Wintle, 72, of Guilderland, NY, and Davenport, FL, passed away peacefully on Sunday, November 14, 2021, at Albany Medical Center, with his loving wife and daughters by his side, after a courageous 20-year battle with cancer.

Born in Syracuse, NY, on April 4, 1949, he was the eldest son of the late Harley and Alice (Rickards) Wintle.  Carter is survived by his loving wife Linnea, and daughters Keri (Brian) Costello and Brynn (Chris) Miltner, and cherished granddaughters Hannah and Carter, and grandson Levi, as well as his sister, Pamela (Henry) and his brother, Bruce (Cathy), and his much-loved nieces.  He is also survived by his brothers-in-law Peter and John (Luanne), sister-in-law Janice (Chris), and many loved nieces and nephews.

After high school, Carter enlisted and proudly served in the U.S. Navy aboard the USS Henry L. Stimson nuclear submarine from 1967 to 1971, where he earned the National Defense Service and the Meritorious Unit Commendation Medals.  After his honorable discharge, he attended both Onondaga Community College and SUNY Albany, where he earned his bachelor’s degree in Economics.  He worked for the State of NY in the Departments of Labor and Tax and Finance, before embarking on a fulfilling second career as Senior VP of Production at Newkirk Products.  He had a notable and extraordinary work ethic.

Carter was an avid runner and marathoner, who directed the Manufacturers Hanover Corporate Challenge (now the JP Morgan Corporate Challenge) in Albany from 1983 to 1992.  He loved rock and classical music, his many fast cars and racing, traveling with his family and friends, golfing, and his Harley-Davidson Fat Boy.

After retiring in 2011, he and Linnea enjoyed spending their winters at their home in Florida in a community with their “Swedish cousins” and many new friends.  Carter was devoted to his family, a true and loyal friend, had an awesome sense of humor and a wholehearted laugh.

His family would like to thank the doctors and nurses who treated him with such care and compassion at Albany Medical Center.  Special thanks to his oncologist, Dr. David Shaffer, who, through his many years of brilliant and compassionate care, helped Carter achieve many more active years to enjoy his life and family.  We are so grateful for him.

Carter also leaves behind his beloved dogs Gracie and Maggie Mae, and joins his Daisy and Zoeë in heaven.  In lieu of flowers, his family asks that you please make a donation in Carter’s name to your favorite animal charity.

Calling hours will be held on Friday, December 3, from 9-11 AM at the DeMarco-Stone Funeral Home, 5216 Western Ave., Guilderland, NY 12084, followed by a celebration of his life at 11 AM.  Burial, with military honors, will follow at Saratoga National Cemetery.
