Richard 'Dick' Gregg Singer

RALEIGH - Richard "Dick" Gregg Singer, passed away unexpectedly on Sept. 29, 2010.

He was born Jan. 1, 1943, to Dr. and Mrs. C. Gregg Singer, both who preceded him in death. Dick attended public schools in both Mississippi and North Carolina, and received his undergraduate degree as well as his law degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Following law school, he clerked for Judge Earl Vaughn of the North Carolina Court of Appeals. He began his own practice in 1968 with the law firm of Terry Sanford, and he remained a close friend of Gov. Sanford until the governor's death. Dick was active in Gov. Sanford's campaigning for his run for the presidency.

Dick was known throughout the North Carolina legal community as an old school lawyer. His word was his bond and he valued his principles above gain.

Dick married Mary Ann Brown of Lexington, and they enjoyed 45 years of love, friendship and mutual respect. He was not demonstrative with his emotions, but his deep love for Mary Ann, his daughters and grandchildren was apparent to all.

He was a member of White Memorial Presbyterian Church, an active member of the Carolina Country Club and its 19th Hole Gin Rummy Club and an enthusiastic golfer both with his friends and his wife.

Dick is survived by his wife, Mary Ann; his daughter, Laura Singer Park and husband Roy Hampton Park III of Charlotte and their children, Elizabeth Sumner, Roy "Hampton" IV, Lawson Brooks and Cameron Parham; his daughter Anna Elizabeth Singer and her daughter, Elizabeth "Ella" Adams; sister Mrs. Terri S. Speicher of Dallas; sister Jean (Mr. and Mrs. Jerry L. Satterwhite) of Birmingham, Ala.; and brother Bob (Mr. and Mrs. Robert A. Singer) of Oak Ridge, N.C.

Service and Visitation: A memorial service will be held at White Memorial Presbyterian Church on Oberlin Road in Raleigh at 11 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 2. A gathering of family and friends will be held after the service in the Jane Bell Gathering Space at the church.

Memorials: The family asks that in lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Greenville Presbyterian Theological Seminary, P.O. Box 690, Taylors, SC 26987, 864-322-2717.
