ST. JOSEPH — William “Bill” Sinclair was “a fine Irishman with a nice smile,” and was jovial and hard-working, one long-time city official said Thursday.

“He was a very hard worker. I can’t recall him ever being sick,” said St. Joseph City Commissioner Jeff Richards. “He was community-minded, he served the city well, and he will be missed.”
