  2. Charles was a very involved enthusiastic Dad and Grandpa. Even into his 80s he would fish, golf, and play board games with Tim and Patrick. They are fortunate to have so many wonderful memories of him!

  3. He was not only a great father-in-law but a great father figure. He volunteered so much of himself after I lost my own father and I feel we had a very special relationship. I will miss him terribly.

  4. Wow, Charles lived an amazing life with Teresa and continued on even once he lost her. Now he’s joined with her once again in their own special place. He raised children that turned out just as amazing, passing his wisdom and teachings onto even the grandchildren!! Rest in peace Sir Charles, you will be deeply missed……until we all meet again 😉 Love and Hugs to all of the Singer family.

  5. To Cathy, Sean, and the entire Singer family,

    We are so sorry for the loss of your dear father and grandfather. May God comfort you in your sorrow, and bring to your minds many happy memories to cherish.. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

  6. I only met Mr. Singer a handful of times, but could immediately tell he was a great, great man. Your family has the deepest sympathies of Annie and myself.

  7. Dear Singer Family,

    We are so sorry for you loss.
    Though we had only met him a couple of times, I was always impressed by his wit and the love he showed his children.
    If you all need anything at all feel free to ask for help.
    Blessings,
    The Parillo Family

  8. Charles and I were both discharged from the U. S. Navy in early 1946. He had been a Navy Pilot and I had been on the flagship of an amphibias fleet. We both immediately enrolled in DePaul University Law School. Both of us became part of a Study Group and completed 3 years of study in 2 years. Our wives became close friends while Charles and I studied. We were both admitted to the Illinois Bar in January 1949, For the next months we practiced in Chicago. Charles became a hearing officer in Washington and I continued my practice in Chicago. Later, he and his family moved to Glen Ellyn where my family also resided. He represented trucking companies in hearings throughout the country and moved his residence to Fort Lauderdale. We kept in touch and continued our contacts when our family acquired a condo in Lauderdale. Thereafter, we kept in touch and in 1986 acquired units in a condo building in 1986. After Theresa passed away about 2 years ago, he moved to Atlanta where Chuck and Mike and their families lived. Both of us played hundreds of matches against each other without improving our games. He was my closest friend during most of those years. I will miss him. He was a good lawyer, husband and father. Frank Wiedner

  9. So sorry to hear about your dad. We had some wonderful times and memories in Glen Ellyn. and Florida. Charlie was a good man and sport, Maybe we will be able to get a bridge game, or two ball foursome in heaven when we all meet again.
