Algirdas Augustinas “Al” Sinkis, 88, of Oxford and formerly of Worcester, passed away peacefully in the comfort of his home on Monday, December 21, 2020.

Born, raised, and educated in Lithuania, Al was one of three children born to the late Gustaf and Kunigunda (Pinkus) Sinkis. He emigrated to the U.S. and enlisted in the U.S. Army during the Korean Conflict, and was honorably discharged in January of 1955. On July 4th that same year, Al married the love of his life, Shirley Ann (Petit), and settled in Worcester to raise their family.

He worked for Morgan Construction, as a machinist, for several years, prior to beginning a decade-long career as a Supervisor at DePaul Plastics.

In his free time, he enjoyed gardening, boating and deep-sea fishing, vacationing in Maine with all his family, especially boogie-boarding with his grandkids, western movies, and rooting for the Red Sox and Bruins. Al was proud of his Lithuanian heritage, and being a member of Maironis Park Lithuanian Club in Shrewsbury. He was also a member of the Coast Guard Auxiliary.

Along with his beloved Shirley, Al is survived by his loving children: Sandra Conway, of Charlton, Donald Sinkis, of Oxford, and Stacy Riendeau, of Hudson; six grandchildren: Russell Conway and his wife Christine, of Holden, Tara Bachand and her husband Andrew, of Wales, Matthew Sinkis, Caitlin Sinkis, and Alyssa Conway, all of Oxford, and Jennifer Riendeau, of Worcester; seven great-grandchildren: Hailey, Hayden, Elizabeth, Austin, Chloe, Owen, and Cheyanne; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, friends from OHA, and a close family friend, Donna Plasse, of Oxford. Al was also predeceased by his brothers, Benas “Ben” Sinkis, of Auburn, and Chester Sinkis, of Oxford, and his faithful Chihuahua companion, Papito.
