Winthrop — Steven Robert Winchenbach, 73, passed away Nov., 23, 2018. After a long battle with dementia and Wegener’s disease, he finally succumbed to his illness. Steve was born to parents Robert and Flora Winchenbach in Rockport Oct. 9, 1945.

Known as “Little Stevie” as a child battling brain cancer, he miraculously survived after a long fight and support from his community. He went on to graduate from Rockland District High School in 1963 and continued on to Central Maine Vocational Technical Institute.

As an adult, Steve worked in construction, for his father’s cabinetmaking business, and with Snap-On Tools, followed by opening Wink’s Mini-Mart in Livermore. Steve continued to work as a master carpenter and later worked with Androscoggin Home Health as the maintenance director until he retired in 2012. He remained active with his hobbies of woodworking, puzzles, modeling and playing with his dog, Kaylee, before moving into assisted living.
