Billy J. Singletary went to his eternal home on Thursday, March 28, at his home in Sugar Land, Texas. He was born in Niceville, Florida and in 1957 married Barbara, his loving companion of 56 years and had two children, Kimberly and Kent. After his service in the U.S. Army he attended the University of Texas and graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Business. In the years that followed Bill succeeded in retail, investment brokerage, and his own business in job-fit assessment. He was an "honored member" of Sugar Land Rotary, "honored lifetime member" of the Greater Houston Chamber of Commerce, and treasured his Thursday morning men's bible study group. In all things Bill was "larger than life". His ability to love easily and his gift of generosity made him a natural leader who was confident enough to follow, and with an endearing ability to laugh at himself. He would like to be remembered as someone who "Did the best he could with what he had at the time, for the most benefit to others."
