Jeffrey Winslow Obituary
Jeffrey R Winslow

Jeffrey R Winslow, 67, died of cardiac arrest Thursday, February 15, 2014, at his store in Pittsfield. Jeff grew up in Cazenovia, NY, graduated from Colgate University, and moved to the Berkshires in Massachusetts, where he spent the rest of his life. He worked for GE, for a national publishing company, for Berkshire Bank as Vice-President for Marketing, and in real estate, co-owning Berkshire County Realty. He realized a long-held dream when he opened his eclectic store, Wild Sage, on North Street in Pittsfield. Jeff was active in many community and civic groups - in the arts and in business, co-organizing Ducks Unlimited Dinners - as well as encouraging individuals with their own goals. Jeff was welcoming, always interested to listen to other people's ideas, and encouraged each person in realizing those ideas. He seemed to have boundless energy, curiosity, love of life, and kindness for others. Wild Sage's motto "Find Your Passion" is who Jeff was. Jeff's interests, compassion, and willingness to work knew no bounds. Jeff strongly believed in and tirelessly promoted downtown Pittsfield, encouraging the Farmer's Market, First Friday Artswalk, and creative ideas for Third Thursdays, and creating a downtown Pittsfield guide, as well as supporting new businesses. Jeff was predeceased by his mother, Kathleen Winslow, and his sister-in-law, Terry Winslow. He is survived by his father, Walter R Winslow of Cazenovia, NY; six siblings; five brothers- and sisters-in-law; nieces, nephews, great-nephews, and a great-niece. Jeff also leaves many close friends for whom he was family. FUNERAL NOTICE: A memorial service will be held at The Whitney Center for the Arts, in Pittsfield, on Sunday, March 16, from 4 to 7pm. Prayers and remembrances will begin at 5pm. Burial in Cazenovia will be private. The family is exploring the possibility of setting up a Jeff Winslow Memorial Fund, to sponsor some action in the Berkshires to reflect Jeff's goals.
