Obituary of Gary Sindler

Gary Sindler, 77, of Denver, Colorado (formerly of Baltimore, Maryland), passed away peacefully on May 11, 2024, after a long battle with Alzheimers.  While Alzheimers took away the memories and ability to communicate during his later years, Gary battled his illness with humor and never lost his smile and playful spirit.

He is survived by his loving wife Nancy Litvak, who loved and cared for him in his retirement and through his journey with Alzheimers.  He loved being a father and is also survived by his daughter Stephanie Sindler, his son and daughter-in-law Jason Sindler and Cindy Long, and his step-daughter Elizabeth Litvak and her husband Josh Fine.  Most of all, he cherished being a Zaydie and is survived by his three grandchildren Ellie, Ben, and Mitchell, who he adored.  He was always there to give and support his family with anything they needed, or just be a “Silly Zaydie”.  He was preceded in death by parents Sidney Sindler and Harriet Sindler (née Freiman) and his sisters Frona, Sheilah, and Shelly.

A Baltimore boy all his life, Gary graduated from City College in 1964 and went to University of Baltimore where he graduated with a degree in accounting.  He went to work at Alexander & Alexander in accounting where he worked his way up to several senior finance roles and had a critical role in its expansion.  Building on that, Gary had a very successful career in corporate finance, working in roles such as VP of Finance and CFO.  His career took him to New York City, Nashville, back to New York and then full circle back to Baltimore.  He made lifelong friends at work in large part due to his great work ethic, attitude, sense of humor, and the ability to not to take himself or work too seriously.  Gary retired from work in 2012 and moved to Denver to be with his family.

Outside of his work and doting on his family, Gary’s other love was baseball, but in particular, the Baltimore Orioles.  A perfect day for him was a day at the ballpark.  Almost all who knew him, will remember his kindness, his smile, his sense and humor, and his love of baseball and music. But they mostly all remember the way they would feel with his lighthearted and joyful approach to the world.

The family will be holding a funeral service at Temple Emanuel in Denver on May 16th at 4:30pm.  This will be livestreamed at The Feldman Mortuary YouTube Channel for those who can not physically attend.  The family will host a reception after the service.  In lieu of flowers, the family asks that any donations be made in Gary’s memory to the Alzheimer's Association of Colorado.
