Winston Anthony Dalley, born to Mavis and Reuben Dalley, August 16, 1940, nephew to our beloved Aunt Rose, younger brother to our beloved Uncle George, and uncle to our beloved Cousin Michael, may they rest in peace.

As a child, Winston was raised with his family in Kingston, Jamaica. Winston was the youngest of four children. His siblings, Joseph, Aurora, and George (deceased), were very close and rooted in the traditions of a Jamaican family from the West Indies. Winston attended Catholic elementary school in Jamaica and excelled in his studies.

In 1953, at the age of 12, Winston's mother, Mavis Dalley, arranged for the family to immigrate to the United States. Winston arrived in New York, and at first lived in Manhattan with his family while attending Bishop Dubois High School. During his school days at Bishop Dubois, Winston focused on his academics and was also the captain of the boys' soccer team. Winston remained dedicated and supportive of the family unit and enjoyed shopping for groceries with the family and helping to cook. Winston became very astute in finding the best bargains and also became a very good cook; two attributes that he carried throughout his life and passed on to his own children.

After graduating from Bishop Dubois, Winston received a partial scholarship to attend Fordham University. At Fordham, Winston majored in Political Science and was a member of the men's' rowing team.

In 1959, Winston met the love of his life, Anis Rebecca Batchelor. Winston and Anis became husband and wife in holy matrimony on January, 11, 1963 and shortly after, purchased their first home together on Sunbury Road in Queens, New York. In this home, Winston and Anis (Annie), had four children; Michele, John, Christopher, and Robert.

As a dedicated U.S. Postal worker, Winston cared and provided for his wife and children and placed a strong emphasis on family unity and a Catholic education. In his career as a U.S. postal worker, Winston set the bar high for himself and will forever be known for his charismatic personality and incredible work ethic.

Winston enjoyed fishing and an occasional round of golf, but above all, he maintained a close relationship with his brothers and sister and was passionate about family celebration and togetherness.

Winston Dalley lived his life based on four tenets; Love, Compassion, Obedience, and Forgiveness. Winston's expressed thoughts and earthly actions embodied these four tenets. Winston's generosity and kind heart has been the guiding light for his children and grandchildren and he is remembered lovingly by all who have been fortunate to know him.

Winston Dalley retired from the United States Post Office as the Superintendent of Transportation after 33 years of dedicated service.
Winston is survived by his wife, Anis; daughter and son-in-law, Michele and Charles of Alpharetta, Georgia; son and daughter-in-law, John and Brenda of Deltona, Florida; son and daughter-in-law, Christopher and Tania of Hauppauge, New York; son, Robert, and grandchildren, Jessica, Ericka, Brittany, Olympia, Victoria, Camille, Monica and Charles.
