Christopher Matthew Sinn (1956–2022) On Tuesday, June 14, 2022, Christopher Matthew Sinn, loving husband of 40 years, father to two adult children and two dogs, passed away peacefully at the age of 65. Born in Evansville, IN on July 8, 1956, he later attended Indiana University Bloomington, where he was a member of the Sigma Nu Fraternity and the Little 500 bike racing team. After college, he managed a Mexican restaurant in Denver, CO, where he employed many of his childhood and forever friends, and where he eventually met his wife, Trudy. Chris, Trudy, and their family have spent the last 30 years together on Cape Cod. Ever the charismatic talker, Chris worked in sales for the majority of his career before slowing down in his later years and working as a chauffeur for KON Limousine, where he continued to banter with and charm his regulars. Equally competitive about the serious and the silly, Chris brought so much fun and light to everything he did. From hitting his quarterly sales goals to coaching little league baseball (and basketball, and soccer, and Odyssey of the Mind), to picking a March Madness Bracket or Fantasy Football Team, to dancing at a wedding or cheering at a wrestling match, he was always giving it 100%. He made the best omelets, was the most fun boat captain for tubing, and was very supportive of fashion risks, mainly hats. Chris was preceded in death by his father, Dr. Charles M. Sinn, his mother, Jean Sinn, and sister, Laura Johnson. He is survived by his wife, Trudy Sinn (West Barnstable, MA), his two children, Kelly F. Sinn (NY, NY) and Connor Sinn (Dennisport, MA), his brother, Rev. Randall Sinn (Beaverton, OR), his sisters, Dulcie Sinn (Lompoc, CA), Amy Mullan (Bothell, WA), and Barbara Sinn (Seattle, WA), and several nieces and nephews, and their children. On March 24, 2004, Chris received a kidney and partial liver donation, respectively from his sister, Barbara, and his brother, Randy, at the Lahey Clinic in Burlington, MA. Tufts University School of Medicine has accepted his anatomical donation to further research his transplants and hopefully bring more families the joy of extra time with their loved ones. The family will be delaying a memorial service until that research is completed and Chris is returned to his family. The family asks that if you are willing and able, please consider a donation to your local blood bank and confirm your organ donation status at your next DMV appointment
