Joe, aka Bob or Butch, passed away on February 19th in Bellevue, WA after a long battle with Alzheimer’s. Joe was born and raised in Woodlynne, NJ to Margaret Sheridan and Johanis Sinon. He graduated from Camden Catholic HS in 1959 then completed his undergraduate studies at Villanova University with a BS in Economics in 1963. Shortly thereafter he went to work for General Accident Insurance Co. in Philadelphia. Having completed his CPCU designation at a remarkably young age, he held a number of leadership positions at General Accident and was moved frequently across the country, finally settling in Bellevue, WA in 1976. In 1979 he took a position as Executive Vice President with Superior Underwriters, where he eventually became President and Chairman. He remained at Superior Underwriters until his retirement in 2013. Generous and compassionate, Joe touched many lives in a profound and positive way. Joe is survived by his wife of 59 years, Christine, and his children, Bob Sinon and his wife Cindy of Woodinville, Karen Singleton and her husband Phil of Woodinville, and Kathy Nickel and her husband Brian of Sammamish; sisters Joan, Claire and Peggy; eight grandchildren, four great-grandchildren, and friends too numerous to count. Tribute donations in Joe’s name may be made to the Alzheimers Association:

Dear Chris, Bobby, Karen and Kathy - we are so sorry to learn of Bob’s passing! He had such a long and painful journey, but hopefully you can rest easy knowing that you were there for him every step of the way - loving him and giving him comfort! We remember meeting you during happier times and he was always so warm and jolly! Through Marilyn and our Karen we have kept abreast of Bob’s struggles. We are so very sorry! Hopefully you are at peace now as well!
Love from both of us, Michael and Shelley Perkins.
