Singer Family in memory of M. Frederick Singer and Frederick S. Singer
Established by the Singer family in memory of their father M. Frederick Singer, a proud WWII Navy veteran, and son/brother Frederick S. Singer, a proud Marine and Vietnam veteran. Fred Sr. joined the Navy in 1944 at just 17 years of age, and followed his seven older brothers into war. Fred spent most of his years in service in the Pacific and was assigned as an SST pilot. Shortly after the end of the war, Fred returned home, married, and raised five children. He worked in the new industry of injection molding for his entire career at the tender age of 83, he received his high school diploma from Pinckney High School through the Operation Recognition program. This program was designed specifically for veterans who entered the armed services prior to high school graduation. Fred was incredibly proud of this accomplishment and treasured his new class ring for the rest of his life.
Fred Jr. joined the Marines in 1969 after his first semester at Michigan State University. After two tours of duty in Vietnam and four years in the Marines, he returned to Michigan and began his career in telecommunications at Michigan Bell where he served 34 years before retiring. Fred Jr. was a devoted Civil War historian, an avid outdoors-man, and loved to ride his Harleys. He spent many hours volunteering at the Michigan Home for Veterans and held a special place in his heart for all those who have served our country proudly in the armed services.
