Your dad is greatly missed, Uncle Rich is missing him so much and our family joins you in thoughts and prayers.
Uncle Paul and I used to watch Zorro together when I would visit grandma Singer in the summer time. We used to run around in his blue Thunderbird. I know Becky remembers him taking her for horseback rides in Johnstown as a little girl. Our dad's would call and talk to each other about teaching at church as they both taught classes in their churches. I loved his laugh and and smiles! You are close to our hearts at this time!

So sorry to hear of your Fathers passing. I have nothing but fond memories of him when I hung out at your house as a child. He was a loving, caring, and giving person. May fond memories help you during your time of grief.
With Love

So very sorry for your family's loss. Mr Singer was affectionately known by many children at Kellee's, including my daughter Jill, as Pappy Singer. Jill always spoke so happily about him. May God bless him and your family.

Paul was a very kind,loving man.Always joking around and picking on people. He meant a lot to Dave and I. He will definitely be missed. He taught our Sunday school class for many years and I enjoyed it and learned a lot.

Paul, you were an awesome man of God! You didnt even have to utter a word but you exudes Gods goodness. I know the angels are singing and the Lord has said, Well done my good and faithful serpent! I know you and your dear wife are so happy to be together once again! May God bless your family with love, and peace, because you are at peace.
