Irwin “Bill” Winter, 91, of Atlanta died Jan. 19, 2019.  Graveside services were held Jan. 22 at Greenwood Cemetery with Rabbi Neil Sandler officiating. Born in Brooklyn, N.Y., he served in the Army, obtained his business degree from NYU, met his soulmate, and moved to Georgia to start a family.  Bill was a loving husband, father and grandfather. He was predeceased by his wife of 51 years, Ruth. Together they owned and operated the Cumming Convalescent Home, providing excellent care for others. His positive attitude was infectious and his kindness unmatched.  Bill was always quick with a joke and a welcoming smile.
