David P. Singleton, Jr., (Big Dave, Dad, Pappy, Pop), 75, passed away January 28, 2015. He was married 56 years to Cecelia (Hoffheinz) Singleton. He was born in Lancaster PA, son to David and Verna (Musselman) Singleton. He was preceded in death by a daughter Corrine, brother Robert Singleton and sister Nancy Koth.
Dave is survived by his wife, Cecelia, children, Anita Kelly (Mike) of Denver, PA, Mitchell Singleton (Tina) of Lancaster, and David P. Singleton III (Jamie) of Lancaster. He is also survived by a sister Janice Hiltz (Harry), 6 grandchildren, Kayla Singleton, Evan Singleton, Alexis Kelly, Michael Kelly Jr, David Singleton IV and Nicholas Singleton, 2 great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.
Dave served in the Army and worked for many years at the Union Camp Corporation. He was an avid Washington Redskins fan, even though they broke his heart more times than he could count.
Dave was a tough old Irishman and we always said that if there was ever a nuclear holocaust there would be cockroaches and our Dad left. We may have been wrong about that, but he lived his life the way he wanted to and fought a good fight.
A private gathering will be held by the family.
Dave so sorry for your loss. You, Jamie and your family are in our thoughts. You are a great son to your parents and showed your love every day. Love Joni and Fred
to the family ,sorry for your loss,I always considered Dave a friend ,he taught me alot besides the job at union camp ,and I am not surprised in the least that Dave lived and died on his own terms ,he seemed to have that knack, some don’t like that style ,he always made me laugh ,heck even when he me was messing with me ,,that was the beauty ,no one was safe ,but in the end I’d take him in my corner ,so sleep well David P you earned it
Hang in there guys, thinking of you.
Love ya brothers,
Love you right back brother and thanks. . Now him and stevie are up there together throwing back a few cold ones
Dave, so very sorry to hear about your Dad. I know how hard it is too lose a parent even though we know that they should go before us. I still think of my Dad most days even though it’s been several years now.
My heartfelt condolences. God Bless.
