Rev. Lonzo Jackson “Jack” Sinclair, 74 of Mershon, passed away Saturday, February 29, 2020, in his home under Hospice care after a sudden decline in health.
Born in Patterson, GA on October 14, 1945, he had lived in Pierce County all of his life. Bro. Jack was a 1963 Honor Graduate of Patterson High School. He farmed all of his life and was led into the ministry in the late ‘70’s. It was his first sermon that he had ever preached (Father’s Day – 1979) that his son was led to Christ. Bro. Jack was ordained into the ministry in 1984 and faithfully served Bi-Vocationally at several churches in our area including Youmans Chapel Baptist Church, Mershon Baptist Church, Walkerville Baptist, Twin Rivers Baptist Church, and Astoria Baptist Church. He was a member of Bristol Baptist Church. Bro. Jack enjoyed hunting and fishing and loved spending time with his family. He would spend many, many hours meditating with the Lord and always looked forward to sharing the gospel with people. Bro. Jack was a devoted husband, a loving daddy, and the most wonderful “Pop” in the world.
He was a son of the late James Ottis & Bertha Lee Griffis Sinclair.
