Terence O Singleton
Oct 14, 1961 to Feb 15, 2015


Terence Owens Singleton, 53, son of Thomasena Sanders Singleton and the late Charlie Singleton, was born on October 14, 1961, in Sumter County. God saw the road was getting rough, the hills hard to climb, so on February 15, 2015, he gently closed the eyes of our loved one. Terry attended Hopewell Baptist Church until he graduated from Hillcrest High School in 1980, and he entered the United States Air Force on June 18, 1980. Terry was stationed at Homestead Air Force Base, Homestead, FLA, as a munitions systems specialist. After leaving the military, he worked various jobs as an electrician until he started a new career in the telecommunication industry as a network cabling technician. He quickly made his way from technician to project manager, responsible for the network cabling for many large projects. He was responsible for over sixteen technicians at a multi-story building. Terry was very well respected for his professional approach with his customers and employees. His dedication to his customers as well as co-workers speaks volumes of his character and work ethics. Terry was an excellent example of how important personal initiative is for the success of an organization. Terry loved the outdoors. His favorite hobby was fishing and he had no problems getting up early and going to his favorite fishing hole. He also enjoyed spending time with his family and friends. Terry leaves to celebrate his memory: two sons, Christopher and Gabriel Singleton of Boca Raton, FLA; his mother, Thomasena Sanders Singleton of Sumter; one sister, Carol B. (Ronald) Gailliard of Sumter; three brothers, Charlie Singleton, Jr. of Chesapeake, VA, Clinton (Juanita) Singleton of Ft. Lauderdale, FLA, and Nathan Singleton of Ridgeville; two uncles, Marion (Gwen) Sanders of Lake Worth, FLA and Melvin (Edna) Sanders of Brooklyn, NY; two aunts, Geneva Black of Philadelphia, PA and Bessie (Fred) Sanders-Gordon of Sumter; a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends. Memorial services will be held Noon, Saturday, February 21, 2015 from the John Wesley Williams Sr. Memorial Chapel, Williams Funeral Home, Inc., 821 North Main Street, Sumter, with Senior Pastor Marion H. Newton, eulogist, assisted by Pastor Ricky Simmons, presiding. The family is receiving family and friends at the home of his mother, 5335 Long Branch Drive, Dalzell. The procession will leave from the home of his mother at 11:20 a. m.
