Paul French Sincock
May 29, 2009
Paul French Sincock passed away quietly on Sunday, May 24, 2009, at his home in Garberville, California, after a short battle with cancer. Paul was born January 21, 1940, in Washington, Pennsylvania, and lived his growing-up years in San Diego, Calif. He attended San Diego State University where he met his future wife, Beverly Roletto Sincock. They lived 30 years in the Los Angeles area before moving to Park City in 1990. Paul loved the small-town atmosphere and it did not take him long to become very active in many of the volunteer groups and boards in Park City. He was elected to the Park City City Council in 1996 and served until 2000. His maverick style created much energy within the circles he worked.
Paul was a very creative person, loved ideas, and was always pondering the meaning and purpose of life and enjoyed a good discussion about it. He loved to golf, hike, ski, and play with his grandchildren who adored him. His philosophy was, "If you are not having fun, then don’t do it." Each year he waited for spring so he could ride his motorcycle and take the road trips with the wonderful members of the Park City Motorcycle Club. He loved exploring the back roads and the solitude of the riding as well as the beauty of the countryside. He was in his element when he was designing homes and when he was tuned into the creative process. Paul was very proud of his two sons, what fine men they had become and wonderful families they had. He loved finally having a daughter-in-law in the family.
Paul had an extensive career and had an entrepreneurial spirit. He was the owner and manager of many businesses during his life. He was the owner of BuildLight, United States Mediation & Arbitration, Pacific Energy, Inc.; VP of Construction, Public Storage, Inc.; general manager, Imperial Glass Company; and division manager of Northrop Architectural Systems. He conducted many training seminars for businesses, organizations, and local municipalities dealing with the public.
Paul was preceded in death by his father, John French Sincock, his mother, Jane Craft Sincock, and his brother, Brian Craft Sincock. He is survived by Beverly Ann Sincock, Park City; sons Kevin Michael Sincock of Ladera Ranch, Calif., and Keith Brian Sincock of Park City; daughter-in-law Heh-Kyu Lee Sincock; grandchildren Paige Marie Sincock, Kira Lee Sincock and Kyle Lee Sincock; sister Judith Leslie Bowman and brother-in-law Roger Bowman, Irvine, Calif.; Joan Sincock, sister-in-law; plus many nieces and nephews who loved to play with Uncle Paul.
Paul’s creativity and joy for life will be greatly missed. Services will be held in Southern California at a later date.
