Jack was a man of many interests - ranging from rebuilding antique clocks, hunting for exotic swords, or reading science fiction, he was never bored. He loved his family, his dogs, and his sports cars. He always had time to help his friends whether it was serving as a deacon at the First Congregational Church of Hopkinton, sharing a laugh with a stressed neighbor, or using his NASA-caliber engineering skills to fix a chair leg. He is best remembered for his bright turquoise eyes and a smile that could light up the room.
Jack is survived by his two sons, John Winzeler Jr. and his wife Tricia of Sandwich, Mass., and Mark Winzeler of Hopkinton. He is also survived by his grandchildren, Abby Winzeler of Portsmouth, Katrina Winzeler of Berkeley, Calif., Alexandra Winzeler of Newton, Mass., Miles Winzeler of Hopkinton, as well as many longtime friends.
