Calvin Bernard Sinclair, III

November 5, 1977 ~ January 8, 2020 (age 42)


Calvin Bernard Sinclair, III was born on November 5, 1977 in Jacksonville, Florida to the parentage of Calvin Sinclair, II and Pamela Riley-Sinclair. Calvin was a proud product of the Duval County school system graduating from First Coast Senior High School, Class of 1995. During his high school years, he was a part of the Buccaneers football team.  After a hip injury, he took his talents to the Buccaneers drum line, playing the Bass drum in the band.

Following high school, Calvin joined the work force, spending several years at Convergys Inc. There he was known for his witty [BM1] personality and strong leadership skills with a signature trait of showing a genuine desire to see everyone succeed. For the last six years, Calvin was employed by ADT in a leadership role where he was known by his peers as a “Beacon of Light”. He spread good cheer and laughter to all those that he encountered.

Calvin accepted Christ at a young man and was ordained as a Minister in the Church of God by Faith in 2006.  For about 10 years, under the leadership of Elder Cedric Matthews, he was a dutiful member of Greater Church of God by Faith. He diligently served the church and was known as one who truly supported his pastor.

In his leisure time, Calvin was an A-V-I-D, die-hard fan of, The Florida State University (FSU), as he also enjoyed coaching youth football.
