Ronald E. Sinclair

Ronald E. Sinclair, 80, of Williamstown, WV, returned to his heavenly home on April 18, 2017, after a courageous battle with cancer.

His devotion to his family, strong will to see his grandchildren succeed, and his firm belief in God supported him in his fight and ultimately gave him peace in the end.

Ronald was born on July 22, 1936, in Wood County to the late Everett and Wilma Sinclair. He was a graduate of Williamstown High School and a longtime member of the First Baptist Church in Williamstown. He was also an employee to the Cabot Corporation for 30 years, retiring as the site purchasing manager.

He was married to his best friend, Janet McCutcheon Sinclair for 58 years, and together they were blessed with a large and loving family. He is survived by his three children, Mark (Amy) Sinclair, Cindy (Scott) Shawver, Angie (Todd) Offenberger; six grandchildren, Jobria (Zachary) McCray, Kristi (Jeff) Toyne, Lindsey (Wesley) Vassar, David Sinclair (fiance Emily Stewart), Michael Shawver (fiance Melissa Corpuz) and Logan Wooddell; two step-grandchildren; Todd Offenberger II and Kacie (Nathan) Hall ; two great-grandchildren, Parker Nickole and Cohen McCray; two step-great-grandchildren; Chase and Lilly Hall; his loyal shitzu, Jasmine and many nieces and nephews. He is also survived by his close cousin, Haskell (Junior) and his wife, Ella Dean Sinclair.

Ronald’s love of golf and winters in Myrtle Beach, SC, brought him many dear friends over the years to which Janet is forever grateful to for helping keep his passion alive.

The family would like to thank Dr. Kelly Cawley and the wonderful staff at the Strecker Cancer Center of Marietta Memorial Hospital and Hospice.
