Claude Sinclair, 76, a man of many words, ﬂuent in several languages, lifelong student,
humanitarian and dedicated family man, died on Monday April 11, 2016.
Claude’s career ﬁrst brought him to the United States from Canada in 1971. The young
ambitious sales executive and his new bride, Connie, made his mark on the Chicago landscape.
He returned to his native Quebec for a short stint only to return to his adopted country seven
Following a long and successful career Claude and Connie decided to retire in beautiful New Hampshire, after having spent months studying the qualities of this state and its advantages,
including the beneﬁt of no sales tax, a very attractive feature for one with an economics degree.
A prerequisite for the very visual Claude was a beautiful and meaningful place to live. The
perfect view of Mount Monadnock sealed the deal to purchase his home in Marlborough.
Claude was a renaissance man. getting involved with the CALL program at Keene State College where he continued his search for knowledge. He taught French for over 4 years to the young and not so young through the Keene Continuing Education Program.
Claude welcomed interaction with others whether they were from church or local businesses. It
was Claude's stage. his life's blood. It’s where Claude belonged and it's where he shone best, the community. Everyone has a unique story of each encounter with ‘Mr. Claude’. He was always interested in your story, your background, your family, your occupation and it was all genuine and sincere. It is how we will remember Claude and it is what we will miss the most.
Please join Connie in sharing your remembrances of Claude at a gathering on Thursday, April
28th, from 7:00 to 8:30 pm at the Cournoyer Funeral Home, 33 River Street (Rte. 202) Jaffrey, NH.
