John Jay Ginter, III
John Jay Ginter, III, a resident of Greenwich, CT and Newport Beach, CA, born on Sept.10, 1946, died from pancreatic neuroendocrine cancer on Jan. 21, 2019.
A self-taught success in careers as a pilot, builder and artist, he was proud of his creations and looked forward to the start of each work day. His works in Connecticut, California and most joyfully Bermuda made his life action filled. Life was full for the primo pizza expert, seasonal flower displayer, professional Nikon photographer, and nothing beat a Porsche on a California Highway.
But his heart exposed itself as a dachshund aficionado extraordinaire.
Many will remember his thoughtfulness and desire to show his appreciation and thanks. He was sincere in his acts of kindness.
Jay is survived by his wife Cynthia and his most devoted Doxi Muffi.
A visitation will be held on Tuesday, January 29 from 3-7 p.m. at Leo P. Gallagher & Son Funeral Home, 2900 Summer Street, Stamford.
A mass will be held at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, January 30 at The Church of Saint Cecilia, 1184 Newfield Ave., Stamford.
In memory of his life and death, please make all donations to Adopt-A-Dog.org

So sorry to hear about John's death. John was a great person. I had the pleasure of knowing him. He called me on the phone to buy a Porsche from me back in the 1990's. This was a beginning a friendship for twenty five years. He would call periodically to talk and see how I was doing. He was personal and sincere. God Bless his family and friends. His memories are forever alive in our hearts.

To the Ginter family, so sorry to hear of the passing of Jay. We went back a long time to when Jay and his family rented a place on Woodside St. Stamford Ct. and then moved to Norwalk Ct. around 9 or 10yrs old. I believe his Dad worked as a Duckwork maker. Rest in peace my childhood friend. God Bless
