Obituary

Cecil Earl Singletary, 96, of Waco, passed peacefully in his sleep on Monday, Dec. 2, 2019. His service and celebration will be 11 a.m. Friday, Dec. 6, at OakCrest Funeral Home with Rev. Ken James officiating. Burial will follow at Oakwood Cemetery. Visitation will be 6:30-7:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 5, at OakCrest Funeral Home.

Cecil was born in Dry Creek, Louisiana on May 4, 1923. After high school, he spent four years in the Army Air Corp serving in the China/Berma Campaign during WWII.
After his military commitment, Cecil attended Baylor University where he studied business management. His time at Baylor provided him with a lifetime of cherished memories and the love of his life, Vivian Renfrow.
In August 1948, Cecil and Vivian married in Waco. They moved to Houston, made their careers, and raised a family of three children. They were members of South Main Baptist Church and then Tallowood Baptist Church, both in Houston. Cecil and Vivian retired and returned to Waco in 1992 where they were members of Columbus Avenue Baptist Church.

Vivian passed away September 28, 2019, leaving Cecil to be survived by their children and spouses, Gail and Denny Copeland, John and Nancy Singletary, and Jillian Singletary. He is also survived by five grandchildren and their spouses, Tobin Copeland and wife Adrian, Clay Copeland, Rachel Singletary Lytle and husband Dalton, Kyle Singletary, and Rainey Richards. Survivors also include five great-grandchildren, Dayde Copeland, Dawlson Copeland, Hudsyn Copeland, Cooper Copeland, and Colton Lytle. Cecil is survived by his baby sister Jeanette Tawater, his beloved cousin Linda Bowden and her husband Russell, and many nieces and nephews.

He was also preceded in death by his parents Aubrey Carl and Leta Cooley Singletary, his sister Doris Kaminski and his granddaughter, Jamie Scout Richards.
