After moving to Southwest Georgia, Charles married Gloria Dianne Childree in 1974. He worked as a truck driver for GPS Services and was Baptist by faith.


If you could name a favorite place, Charles would say “outside”. He enjoyed fishing, camping, hunting and horseback riding. He loved traveling the open road and spent his years as a truck driver taking in every site. His family served as a beacon for home where he spent many years making precious memories.


Survivors include his wife of 45 years, Gloria Dianne Singleton; his children, Charles R. Singleton, Jr. and Wendy Dianne Lairsey both of Brinson, Ga.; his brother, John Singleton of Goldfield, NV; and his grandchildren, Amber, Cheyenne, Alexis, Stacy, Kasey and Nicholas.
