Colin Robert Winter
I attended PWSTS in Derwent Class 20-05-63 to 21-09-63
I went to sea at age 16 in SS Orsova for P&O and later on worked for Shell Oil on the tanker SS Asprella. I was only at sea for about a year and a half before going ashore. I did go to sea again in October 1966 when I joined the US Navy and spent a tour of duty in Vietnam on Blanco County, LST 344. I spent a second tour of duty on USS Tioga County in San Diego before leaving the military and attending university at California State University- San Jose.
After graduating from university I began a career with The New York Times on the business side. I have been with The Times about 24 years now. I am married to my wife, Donna. We have three grown daughters and four grand children.
We live in Campbell, California about 50 miles south of San Francisco.
