Shelton B. Singletary departed this life on June 1, 2017 at his home. Shell was a man who never met a stranger. He will be remembered especially for his sense of humor, his knowledge of all things mechanical and his wise advice about living. He often told the children and grandchildren, "Be nice to people; you never know when you might need them."After serving in the U.S. Army, he ultimately retired from Davco where he worked as the Senior Service Representative. Shell was a member of Barnetts Creek Baptist Church where he was baptized at the age of 78 by Dr. Julian Pipkin who was approximately 90 himself.
