Mr. Marion Singletary Sr. AKA; Johnny, was born December 13, 1946 in Hoke County to the late Mrs. Flora Ethel McBryde Singletary. Marion was rasied by parents Mr. James and Mrs. Lena Harrington who preceded him in transition. He was preceded in death by 2 brothers Mr. Earnest Singletary and James Singletary and 1 sister Mrs. Pearlie Mae Galbreath. Marion answered his Masters call on January 23, 2022, at Cape Fear Valley Hoke. Although Johnny's transition was unexpected, his final days were spent surrounded by family and friends whom he had touched in numerous ways throughout his life.

Marion was born, and grew to manhood in Hoke County. Marion was a man of few words, altough quiet and reserved he loved life. Marion was a devoted and loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend. He loved his family, his friends, family gatherings, the laughter, music, food, tractors and the beach. Marion was a farm boy for life, farming was his career, he enjoyed it and continued until the week prior to his transition. Something about them tractors and being out in the fields, must have given him peace but also purpose.

He leaves to cherish his memories; his wife Christine Singletary, Five daughters; Jeannette Daniels-McQueen, Catherine Singletary(Anthony), Daisey Alexander(James), Linda Uzzell(Toriano), Earlene Buie(John), four sons; Jimmie Daniels, Jerry Daniels(Marie), Okale Daniels and Marion Jr.(Cassandra), sisters; Viola Singletary, Gladys Bronson(Rev. Robert L), 17 grandchildren, 3 great grandchildren; plus 1 that he was anticipating her arrival in April, nieces, nephews, and a host of other relatives and friends.
