Mr. Wolinksy was born in Brooklyn, NY, on October 30, 1928. His parents were Louis and Ann Wolinsky. He attended public schools in New York City and City College of New York. Mr. Wolinsky entered the family dental supply business as a salesman and covered a sales territory in NYC and New Jersey for 45 years. He always joked that he only had one job in his whole life but the company kept changing hands.
On May 3, 1958, he married the love of his life, Ruth Katherine Usher, of Hoosick Falls, NY. In 1996 he and Ruth retired and moved to Whitingham. They spent many winters in Spain and traveling through Europe.
In his younger days Mr. Wolinsky was an avid skier and hiker, and especially loved boating and waterskiing. He was active in the Whitingham Lions Club later in life and loved spending time with his grandchildren and family.
Mr. Wolinsky was a fun-loving guy who always loved life and always had a joke and a laugh. He leaves his wife, Ruth Wolinsky; his son, David Wolinsky and his wife Jean; his daughter, Sarah Mullins and her husband Kevin; his grandsons, Ryan and Garrett Mullins; and several nieces, nephews, cousins, and many friends.
There will be no calling hours. The family plans a celebration of Mr. Wolinsky’s life in the spring.
