Sinclair, George Francis

George Francis Sinclair was born April 13, 1926, at Wetaskiwin. He passed away peacefully on Sunday, Nov. 27, 2006, at Fort Macleod after a lengthy and courageous battle with cancer. His family was by his side offering comfort and peace.
George is survived by Jean, his loving wife of 27 years; his sons Lee of Nanaimo, B.C., Ray of Shaunessy, Dean of Calgary and their families; his extended family of Jack, Doug, Nolan Cuppen, all of Calgary, Joyce Widmer and Nony Orr, both of Fort Macleod, and their families.
He is also survived by two brothers Dave of Victoria, B.C. and Earl of Courtenay, B.C.; and his sister Joyce Price of Leduc.
George is predeceased by his parents Thomas E. Sinclair and Elizabeth Sinclair (nee Ward), and his brother Lloyd Sinclair.
George spent many years in the meat packing industry, starting at a young age at Gainers in Vancouver, B.C. His experience there prepared him for the general foreman position at Canada Packers, Lethbridge, a position which he held for many years and brought him much satisfaction.
After leaving the packing industry, George drove truck for his good friend Al Fodder at H&R Trucking, amassing an enviable safe driving record.
The last few years of his working life were spent doing custom slaughtering with his light delivery and driving school bus out of Fort Macleod. He loved being with the kids: they were in safe hands.
In his younger years even into his less-than-younger years George was outgoing and adventurous, fun-loving and a bit of a daredevil, priding himself in his water skiing and bridge jumping exploits. Dare we mention paragliding behind a car?
As he aged, he mellowed some and showed a very kind and gentle spirit endearing himself to his family and especially his grandchildren. For those who knew him, he leaves a great legacy, and we feel privileged to have been a part of his life.
A celebration of George’s life was held Saturday, Dec. 2, 2006, at 11 a.m. in the Knights of Columbus Hall located at 2517 Third Ave., Fort Macleod, followed by a light luncheon.
