He is also predeceased by his brother and best friend Stephen Winston. David was born in Boston on April 14, 1957, a son of James Joseph Winston, Jr., and Audrey M.

He was a truck driver for many years, last working for Linde Trucking in Kittery. When not driving, he and GG owned and operated “Braketime,” a red food truck parked near the Sanford Airport, serving up hearty meals to their loyal customers.

David loved spending time with his wife and enjoying the outdoors. He enjoyed golfing as was a former member of Nabnasset Lake Country Club in Westford, MA.
