Bill Sincock

BAXTER — William “Bill” Sincock, 74, of Baxter died peacefully in “The Wee Small Hours of the Morning” on Friday, Dec. 14, 2012, following a courageous and lengthy battle with cancer. A private commemoration of his life will be held in Minneapolis for family and friends.

Bill’s incredible sense of humor, gift for telling stories, and many other talents will not only be missed but will also provide lasting memories for family and friends. He favored the music of the 30s and 40s, with the uncanny ability of identifying 100’s of songs by the first one or two notes. “Well Sue, Are You “Franked” out yet??” (Art Sincock).

He was a master of the history of films of the 30s and 40s, to the point of not only knowing entire casts, but also having the amazing ability to speak the dialogue of his favorite movies with the sound off, especially those with Bogie, Montgomery Cliff and The Duke. (A favorite game he often played with his Brother-In Law, Jim)

Bill also was probably “the foremost expert on the Civil War in the Brainerd Lakes Area.”

Bill was kind, sensitive and lived the meaning of unconditional love through his words and actions. “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass. It’s about learning how to dance and sing in the rain.”

The best memories of him are recalled with smiles. He had a quick wit, he loved to find the humor in life’s absurdities, and he lived to make people laugh. He will be remembered for his love and loyalty to his wife, family, friends and his adoring dog, Zack.

Preceded in death by parents Arthur and Irene; sisters Jane Sincock, Linda Sammis, and son, William A Sincock, Jr. Survived by loving wife and best friend for 35 years, Susan (nee Tiegs), sister Marilyn Leadens (William); and the close-knit members of the Sincock, Specht and Tiegs families.

A heartfelt appreciation of Andrea, Ruth, and Deb’s staff support throughout Bill’s journey this past year.
