Obituary of Donald G. Singleton

Palmer/Ware-Donald G. Singleton, 82, passed away on May 5, 2024. Born in Parma, Missouri, on July 25, 1941, he was the son of Russell F. and Mary M. (Hon) Singleton. Donald grew up in Alton, Illinois, and graduated from Alton High School. After high school, he enlisted in the US Air Force and was stationed at Westover Air Force Base in Chicopee, MA.

In 1963, he married his wife Janice, and they moved to Palmer where they raised their family. Later, they moved to Ware, and they happily spent 20 years enjoying their retirement. Donald worked in retail management at Deerskin Trading Post in Framingham, MA, for many years. Later in life, he became a courier for Baystate Reference Lab, a job that gave him much pride.

Donald was an avid Red Sox fan, who loved Corvettes, going antiquing and caring for his yard and gardens. He also enjoyed fishing, RVing and spending time on the beach in Maine.

Donald was predeceased by his loving wife of 59 years, Janice (Gould) Singleton in 2021, his youngest son, Matthew, in 2017, as well as his two brothers Ronald and Lawrence. He is survived by his children, Belinda O'Connor and husband, Patrick, of Three Rivers, Daniel Singleton and wife, Allyson, of Enfield, CT, and Marcia Singleton of Belchertown, along with daughter-in-law, Dr. Rupal Panchal of Southington, CT. He will also be dearly missed by his three grandchildren, Ryan and Heather O'Connor and Nicholas Martel. His sister-in-law, Vicki Singleton and many nieces and nephews in Illinois will also miss him.

A memorial service and burial will be planned at a later date. Beers & Story Palmer Funeral Home has been entrusted with the arrangements. In lieu of flowers, please consider donations to the National Kidney Foundation, 30 E. 33rd St. NY, NY 10016
