Some of his memories included teaching English, grammar and spelling to ice skaters who went on to win Olympic medals and other accolades. The skaters trained at the Broadmoor World Arena, which at that time, was located next to the Broadmoor Hotel. They attended Cheyenne schools for their academics.

A long time wonderful neighbor Mr Sinclair has been to us! We will miss seeing him take his walks, talking with him when doing so, watching him last year as we paraded around the neighborhood celebrating his 95th birthday, seeing he and Mrs Sinclair out for dinner at the Mason Jar! Lisa has been a real gem throughout. Forever in our hearts Mr Sinclair keep on dancing with your bride

Mr. Sinclair was kind to me as an awkward 7th grade student enrolling well into the Fall of '64 school year.

Mr. Sinclair was my principal while I attended CMJH in the late 70´s. I was a very quiet, shy kid who was so gawky and tall. He would tell me to stand tall and be confident. I have very fond memories of him and my thoughts and prayers are with his children.

My sincere sympathy to the Sinclair family. Bruce was a wonderful principal and friend during the years I taught at CMJHS. It was great to reconnect with him in the late 1990's when he became a member of COSNUG, our senior computer club. He will truly be missed by family and his many friends. God Bless.

Remember having a couple of talks with MR. Sinclair. He knew my farther Fred Dickinson as a fellow principal and educator in Colorado Springs. He would tell me "I know you are a better student than your grades show." Work hard and be a better student. It took me to my senior year to sink in.

What a nice tribute to your Dad. I just looked and he signed my 1961 yearbook when I was in 8th grade. Love that picture and recognized him immediately. I'm sure you have wonderful memories to help during this sad time.

Mr. Sinclair was one of my teachers and principal in Woodland Park when I was in high school. He was a great teacher and was also teacher of my husband Merlin Cummins. My deepest sympathy to his family.
