David was born July 15, 1964 in Conway, South Carolina, son of Ronald Singleton and Vivian Spencer Singleton. He graduated from The College of Charleston and went on to earn a Masters in Education from The University of South Carolina.

David was a faithful member of St. Stephen's Episcopal Church, the oldest free Episcopal Church in America, where he served on the Vestry, and was a former Senior Warden, served as a Lay Reader and was a member of the Flower Guild.
