The independent voice of the global moving industry


Obituary - Jack Winterburn

May 29, 2014
Jack Winterburn died on 28 February.

Jack started working in the moving business with Walshes in Sheffield in the late 50s.  In 1963 he moved to Aylesbury to become Removal Manager at Robinsons.  He subsequently worked as Removal Manager at Harrods before moving on to Pitt & Scott, Pickfords for a short while and then Michael Gerson. 

In the mid 80s he finally set up his own small family business, called JWay, in Aylesbury where he worked until his retirement to Scotland in 2001.  His son, John, followed him into the international moving business.

Jack was suffering from terminal cancer and died peacefully.

Editor's note:

I knew Jack very well, not as a removal man particularly but as a neighbour in Aylesbury in the 1980's and as a fellow thespian.  Jack was a thoroughly good chap, great fun to be around and a good friend. He wasn't a half bad actor either. Rest in peace Jack.
