Tim Aaron Singleton passed away on Tuesday, February 2, 2021 at the age of 62 at his home in Charleston, SC.
Born of Virginia and Ervin Singleton on March 23, 1958, Tim was an enthusiastic student of life. He loved to travel and never met a stranger, choosing instead to engage in meaningful dialogue whenever possible. Music was a passion (the blues and reggae were favorites) and he enjoyed riding his bike and reading thought-provoking books.
After graduating from Fort Johnson High School on James Island in 1976, Tim went on to earn a Bachelor's Degree in Criminal Justice at the University of South Carolina. He was a four-year letterman in football at USC as a linebacker and was drafted by the Pittsburgh Steelers in 1980. A pivot in life led to a successful 25-year career as a State Farm Insurance Claims Adjuster and Claims Manager. Tim served as an elder at Crosstowne Church for 10 years.
Tim leaves behind his loving wife of 33 years, Faith, son and close friend Stone, father Ervin Singleton, sister Hope Michelle Singleton, three Brothers Gerald, Jerry (Catina), and Randy Singleton, nieces Brittany, Quintessa, and Miracle, nephew Xavier, grandniece Riley and many loving cousins, aunts and uncles.
A memorial service will be held at 12:00 pm (noon) on Wednesday, February 10, 2021 at Crosstowne Church at 1941 Bees Ferry Road in West Ashley. The service will also be live-streamed on the church's Facebook page (@crosstownechristian church) and YouTube channel (Crosstowne Church).
