“I saw Winks at the golf course one day and admired his golf cap because it was labeled for his company and had such a beautiful braid on the bill.  He accepted my admiration but said little else. We continued with our golf games. However, a few hours later, when I was sitting at home, there was a knock at my door. There appeared Winks’ house-keeper, Marie Savela, who said, ‘Mr. Gundlach asked me to give you this hat.’ I still cherish that hat to this day.”

James Spain, Houghton Rotarian

“In my prime, I wasn’t as clever and sharp as he was at 90 years old.  His heart was always with the less fortunate and he proved it time and time again.”

Mark Lambert, Executive Director of U.P. Kids (formerly Good Will Farm)
