Henry David Singley III, 68, of Little Rock, Arkansas after a long and courageous battle with Lewy Body Dementia, passed from this life into heaven on October 28, 2019, surrounded by family and with his loving wife of 38 years by his side. He was the second child and only son born to David Singley Jr. and Betty Walker Singley. He grew up and lived most of his life on the family dairy farm just south of Little Rock. He was a fun loving child and spent his early years exploring the farm and playing baseball. He raised several cows of his own and showed them at the Arkansas State Fair winning many ribbons. His mischievousness followed him into adulthood. He loved teasing all the children in the family - going so far as to sit them up in a tree and leave them there. David was an avid hunter and loved spending time at his life-long deer camp, East Saline Hunting Club, where he was a third generation member. In 1986, he was featured in Arkansas Sportsman magazine as a Triple Trophy recipient. He also hunted in Canada searching for that "big one". He loved hamburgers, Beagle puppies and driving fast. He will be remembered as a man who lived his life to the fullest. David trusted the Lord as his Savior when he was a young man and was a member of East Union Baptist Church. He spent 24 years working for the Ben M. Hogan Company as a superintendent and 16 years working as a laboratory manager for Porocel. David was preceded in death by his parents. He is survived by his beloved wife and best friend of 38 years, Carolyn Snead Singley; son, Henry "Hank" David Singley IV (Lindsay); grandsons, Henry "Little Hank" David Singley V, Aleck and Kaden; sister, Sue Huitt (Myron), sister, Deborah Pinkerton (Larry); mother-in-law, Louise Snead; brother-in-law, Ronald Snead (Serena); sister-in-law, Teresa Lewis (Lonnie); special aunt, Lena Scott and a host of nieces and nephews. He was well loved and will be missed. Funeral service will be at 2 p.m. Friday, November 1, 2019 at East Union Baptist Church in East End with Bro. Bill Elliott officiating. Burial will follow at Landmark Cemetery. Family will receive friends at the church from 1 p.m. until service time. In honor of David's love of blue jeans and boots, no suits or ties are expected.
