Brian Singletary Obituary

Brian K. Singletary, aged 63, of Nashua, New Hampshire, passed into eternal rest on February 24, 2024, surrounded by his devoted family. Born on January 13, 1961, at Fort Dix, New Jersey, Brian followed in his father’s footsteps by enlisting in the United States Air Force, where he honorably served for 24 years. Following retirement, he was employed for many years as a Department of Defense contractor at Hanscom AFB, Massachusetts. 

Brian was a talented artist who delighted his colleagues, family and friends by his doodling on desk calendars and greeting card envelopes. His trademark move was to slip a crisp $2 bill into the card. He enjoyed all kinds of music (especially classic rock), attending live concerts, playing guitar and harmonica as well as composing songs that were sometimes more "borrowed" than original.

He possessed the palate of a 5-year-old and liked going out to eat for chicken tenders and pizza.  His culinary skills shined when he made BK’s famous soy sauce chicken and chili that boldly banished beans.

Brian enjoyed a game of Rummy, Hearts, or Spades, changing the rules to his benefit along the way.  He was an avid Tampa Bay Buccaneers fan long before Brady was on the team and enjoyed betting with his family on weekly games.

Brian was a proud graduate of the Green Dragon Chinese Martial Arts school, complete with handbook, the title of “Green Dragon”and all the moves.

His sense of humor was subtle, quick and wicked, and his mostly silent laugh filled a room.

He will be forever missed by his loving wife and soulmate Patricia Martone, his daughters Sarah Singletary (Kyle Kiggins), Melanie Singletary, and Amy Jaworski (Aaron), stepsons Nathan Martone (Victoria), Dominic Martone (Victoria) and grandchildren Dylan, Patriot, Bria and Savannah. He also leaves a sister Carole Raguckas (Joe), brothers Philip Singletary (Susan), Philip “Knish” Singletary (Susan), Guy “Tim” Singletary (Donna), the mother of his daughters, Bonnie (Anderson) Singletary, along with many nieces, nephews, and friends.

Brian was predeceased by his parents, Philip and Geraldine (Burns) Singletary, and his granddaughter Mikhaela Gillman.

The family expresses sincere gratitude to the medical staff at UMass Medical Center for their compassionate care over the past 11 years with special thanks to ICU nurses Jeremiah, Jo and Ally.
