Obituary

"How frail is humanity! How short is life, how full of trouble! We blossom like a flower and then wither. Like a passing shadow, we quickly disappear."  Job 14:1-2 NLT

On June 21, 2022, Oscar Singletary, Jr. went home to be with the Lord. November 5, 1964, Oscar Singletary, Jr., a lively, bouncing baby boy was born to the lineage of the late Mary Dorothy Singletary and Oscar Singletary, Sr. in Bridgeton, New Jersey. He graduated there from Cumberland Regional High School in June of 1982.

While living in New Jersey, he spent time singing in the church choir, along with that talent, he played musical instruments. He later moved to Florida in his early 20s, working Security and at Winn Dixie Supermarket. After those occupations, he worked many years for the City of Boca Raton until he started battling numerous illnesses. Despite his disability, he never let go of his passion for playing the guitar. During his free time, he would entertain his wife and sometimes others, strumming his guitar while bobbing his head and tapping his feet to the beat - wearing a sparkling smile. Another passion was watching his two favorite teams -- the Dallas Cowboys and Georgia State. Oscar Jr. was also known for cooking tasty barbecue chicken and ribs. When he was not commanding the Charcoal Grill, hosting cookouts, he would indulge in delectable fried seafood and seafood boils at home or while dining out. He was never a stranger to those he encountered. To truly know him, was to love him because of his personable disposition. His love for our Heavenly Father never faded away as he continued trusting and studying God's Words.

Mourning Oscar Singletary, Jr.'s departure are:  His wife, Sheila Singletary; two daughters from previous relationship -- Whitney Singletary and Francesca Singletary, His five grandchildren;  His three sisters -- Angela, Gwendolyn and Shirley; Aunts, an Uncle, nieces, nephews, cousins; several step children, in-laws and friends.

"Well, Oscar Singletary, Jr., rest in peace. We know you were tired after all you went through medically; yet you didn't complain or ask, 'Why me?' With a unique sense of humor, you kept a smile and forged onward. We knew you were worn out, and perhaps hidden inside, you did also. However, we still did not want to see you go. Our love for you will never grow cold. You left this earth, no doubt courageously and bold. You made an impact on those who truly knew and loved you, more than a pot of gold.

We know you're now resting in peace, truth be told."
