Stephen Michael Sinagra, of Windham, NH formerly of Medford, MA passed away suddenly on Monday, September 30th at the age of 46. He was the beloved husband of Caroline (Midwood) Sinagra. Born in Winchester, MA he was the cherished son of Joyce (Abramo) Sinagra of Newbury, NH and the late Louis J. Sinagra Jr.
Stephen was raised and educated in Medford where he was very active in youth sports as a young boy and enjoyed learning and playing the guitar. He was a 1985 graduate of the Medford Vocational Technical High School where he studied and excelled in cabinetry making. Stephen has worked for many years in the construction industry as a talented finish carpenter and general contractor. He owned and operated the Custom Construction Co. of Medford and Windham and for many years worked alongside with his dear friend and partner Greg Carbone. Always wanting to learn new things, Stephen enjoyed talking with other craftsmen learning how they did things or how things were done in the past with old techniques. He was always a student of his craft and an absolute perfectionist. Stephen was always working whether in the field or at his home but he was always adventurous and willing to try new things especially when it was something he could enjoy with his son and family. He would research and study up on whatever project or activity they were going to try and then immerse himself into it 100 percent. His greatest joy was spending time with son, family and pets. He loved to support his family and was always willing to help others when needed. Stephen loved his pets and taking them to the Derry Dog Park. Please make a contribution to the Dog Park in Stephen’s memory next time you visit there.
In addition to his beloved wife and mother, Stephen is survived by his son, Stephen Robert Sinagra. He was the loving brother of Deirdra Taylor and her other half, Michael Kenealy of Canton, MA.
