Brian Lutcher Winter died peacefully at home on Wednesday 24 July 2013. The son of Joan Brown Winter and William C. Winter, MD, he was born in San
Antonio, Texas, on the 6th of April 1960. Brian is the fifth generation of a family which had been fundamental in the development of the timber, pulp, and paper industry in East Texas and Louisiana. His family were members of the former Lake Placid Club.
He attended La Jolla Country Day School, the University of California at San Diego, the University of California at Santa Barbara, and the University of Texas at Austin, studying the fields of Mathematics, Physics, and Engineering. Well educated and highly intelligent - always an innovative designer with too many interests and pursuits and too little time.
He grew up in San Antonio, Denver, San Diego and Lake Placid having a wonderful childhood and early life and eventually met his future wife in Lake Placid, New York. They left the cold of the Northeast to return to Texas and settled on their ranch in Blanco, Texas where they run a busy integrated agricultural-wildlife operation.
Beloved and missed very much - Brian is predeceased by his mother, Emily Joan Brown Winter, his brother, Phillip Scrimshaw, and his grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. H. L. Brown, all of San Antonio, Texas. He is survived by his wife Jane A. Owens, his father William C. Winter, MD and wife Judy, his brother Bruce Lutcher Winter, MD, and wife Tammy, their daughters Nikki and Abby Winter, his brother George Lutcher Winter, and wife Janet, and their four children, Magdelena, George, Gabby and Phillip, and his cousins Jim Negley, Dick Negley, Laura Negley and her husband Chris Gill, Federico Brown, Louis Brown, Len Brown and Emily Brown.
