William Singleton lived a life of adventure where no challenge was too great. Following his service in the army in WWII and Korea he returned to the states to begin a family. He had a natural aptitude towards building and creating as well as an ability to fix anything. With a keen eye for electronics, he taught multiple classes including Sierra Research Technology. With a generous spirit and abundant talent he was always eager to lend a hand to whomever needed help. In addition to enjoying golfing, sailing, and cross-country traveling he discovered his artistic ability later in life. His capacity in pencil, pen, and ink was quickly recognized by his instructor who invited him to join a class at The College of Continuing and Professional Education at Kennesaw State University. He soon impressed the college’s leadership which resulted in a teaching position. He enjoyed cultivating other’s passion for art into his 80’s and earned recognition as teacher of the year. His easy spirit and enthusiasm was an inspiration to all, enabling them to go beyond the limits they have set for themselves.
