Sinclair, Donald Ray
Oct. 7, 1950 - Sep. 17, 2013
Donald Ray Sinclair, 62, of Sarasota FL formerly of Marseilles IL, passed away peacefully Sept. 17, 2013.
Don worked as a mechanical engineer for Caterpillar for 33 years in Illinois before fulfilling his lifelong dream of retiring and moving to the Sunshine state. He worked at Stoney Brook Golf Course as a greenskeeper for most of his time in FL and also worked at Dimensional Imaging as an attorney liaison.
Don was an avid golfer who never had a bad day on the golf course and never found a stranger he didn't say "hi" to. He held many titles in his time, a son, father, uncle, grandfather, and a loving husband. But, it was his love of life that carried the most weight.
Don is survived by his wife Beth Sinclair, his daughters Stacey Sharisky (Cory) and Melissa Lowe, stepdaughter Tonya Smetana (Shawn), stepson Michael Price (Katie), father Joseph and mother Lola Sinclair, seven brothers and sisters, as well as several nieces and nephews, and grandchildren.
The family will be present to receive visitors at Toale Brothers, 6903 S. Tamiami Trail, Sarasota, FL on September 29th at 2pm with a celebration of life at 3pm.
