Such joyful memories of Father Singleton! He was a true "Parish Priest". He knew us all by our first names. I always felt special.

Father Singleton's laughter and light I've always remembered as part of my memory of going to school at St. Raymond's. May he be at peace with our Lord now.

We remember Father Singleton from our days at Our Lady of Lourdes. He was wonderful to all the children and their families in the school and the parish. A true and great priest, sent by God, now welcomed by God.

As a student at St. Raymond's, I loved when Fr. Singleton would come over and talk with us. He always had a positive outlook and a smile on his face. I remember the way he would always call me Bill and repeat everything twice because kids don't listen the first time. He left an indelible impression on my life and the lives of many SRS students. He will be dearly missed.
