Mr. Singewald served in the U.S. Army as a Technical Sergeant from November 1944 until August 1946. He was very proud that he served in the Army during World War II and would look forward to telling his children and grandchildren about his experiences overseas.

Mr. Singewald enjoyed reading and walking. He could always be seen walking in Verona Park and around town. He will be remembered for his quick wit and sense of humor.
