Family and friends will be received for visitation from 1-4 pm Sunday, September 27, 2020 at Muehlebach Funeral Care, 6800 Troost Ave, Kansas City, MO. Please remember to practice social distancing and face masks are required.

Fr. Sinclair was born March 9, 1933 in Brooklyn, NY. He attended Visitation Elementary, Rockhurst High School, Georgetown University, and St. Thomas Seminary, Denver, CO. Fr. Sinclair was Ordained in June of 1957 and served St. Columban Parish, Chillicothe, MO, Christ the King, KCMO, Sacred Heart Parish, Warrensburg. From 1962 to 1968, Captain Sinclair served in the US Air Force as a Chaplain ministering to troops and civilians in Da Nang, Vietnam. Upon returning from his service in Vietnam Fr. Sinclair continued his education receiving his Masters Degree in Political Science from Georgetown University. He then began his campus ministry at Georgetown University and UMKC. Following campus ministry Fr. Sinclair returned to Parish ministry serving as Pastor of St. Patricks Parish, Holden, MO, Holy Trinity, Our Lady of Sorrows, St. Raphaels Parish, and St. Gabriel Archangel Parish and Coronation of Our Lady Parish. He engaged with his parish communities for a lifetime, was known for his Latin mass, and could be heard whistling a hymn most everywhere he roamed.
Fr. Sinclair valued education, was an avid reader and enjoyed playing the piano. He had a wit so dry that if you didnt listen carefully, you would miss the punch line. Fr. Sinclair also had a keen appreciation for a shared meal and a good single malt scotch. If he wasnt feeding a crew one of his famous fried chicken dinners, Fr. Sinclair could be counted on to bring the cheese, cracker, and good wine. Birthday celebrations could score Murray's chocolate flake fromage and chocolate chip cookies. He is survived by his brothers, Dr. Richard, Martin and Paul Sinclair; many nieces and nephews and extended family. His family extended beyond the Sinclairs to many loving parishioners. Sincerest thanks to the team at Saint Lukes Hospital and Bishop Spencer Place for their dedication and loving care.
