Charlie is survived by his beloved wife of 57 years, Thelma “Becky” Singleton; two daughters, Kimberly Burcham and Elizabeth Kay Sawyer (Mike); twelve grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.  He is also survived by many other loving extended family members and friends.

Charlie is predeceased by his parents, his grandmother who raised him, Ada Hall; and his son, Charlie Ray Singleton, Jr.

I’m so sorry to hear this Mrs. Singleton. He lit up a room every time he walked into and I was very enjoyed by his company. Love and prayers towards your family.

Condolence from Frank Sossamon on September 7th, 2019 11:14 pm

Sorry to hear of Charlies death. He was a great guy that served his Lord well and served people too. I remember his Boy Scout days and his commitment to making man out of boys. I remember his love for gospel music and enjoyed seeing him worship the Lord at the United We Sing event at Grassy Creek a few months ago. I also remember his love for family speaking of them often and especially his Becky. Please know we’re praying for your family. Love your friend Frank Sossamon
