Jackson K. Winters, 2, of Moretown, passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, December 8, 2011. Born in Berlin on August 3, 2009, he was the son of Jamie and Cassandra (Aylward) Winters.
Jackson, nicknamed “Chewy” by his parents, was a smart young boy. He was very active and enjoyed any outdoor activity. Some of his favorites include mowing the lawn, driving his multiple power wheels vehicles, playing on his swing set or simply running around. He had a love for tractors, trucks and excavating equipment. He also enjoyed watching the cartoons “Thomas the Tank Engine” and “Bob the Builder.” For Christmas, all Jackson asked for was a Christmas tree, which the family decorated the weekend before his passing.
Jackson is survived by his parents, Jamie and Cassandra; his paternal grandparents, Paul and Debbie Winters of Middlesex; his maternal grandmother, Stacy Grandfield of Barre; his maternal great-grandparents, Eugene Grandfield of Moretown and Richard and Nancy Aylward of Duxbury; his maternal great-great-grandmother Janice Kingsbury of Waterbury; his paternal uncle, Dan Winters of East Montpelier; and his maternal great-uncle, Steve Grandfield of Moretown. He was predeceased by his brother, Jasper Winters, his maternal grandfather, Todd Aylward, and his maternal great-grandmother, Judith Grandfield.
