He was preceded in death by his mother, Helen Fry Wingate; father, Harold Wingate; brother, Tim Wingate, and faithful furry companion Izzy.

The family would like to thank the 5th floor oncology nursing staff for their compassion, care and for listening to his stories; Dr. Williamson for giving us 2 more years; and the Cardiac Intensive Care nursing staff and doctors for their amazing care and compassion.
