The world lost a great man Friday, May 27, 2022. Chip Singletary crossed over to be with his Lord and Savior. He was born Dec. 4, 1954, in Florence, S.C. He was preceded in death by his father, Norman Ivey Singletary Sr.; one sister, AnDe Dick; and an uncle, Butch Meares.
Chip was a resident of the small town of Fair Bluff, which he loved.
He was a loving father, grandfather, son, brother, and friend to many. Chip was a devoted member and former deacon of Fair Bluff Baptist Church. He was a farmer, tree removal expert and chainsaw master. His hobbies included camping, boating on the river, wood working, cooking, seeing live music and he could make the best homemade ice cream you’ve ever had. Above all, he loved spending time with his friends and family making them laugh.
Visitation will be held from 1-1:50 p.m. Tuesday, May 31, at Fair Bluff Baptist Church. A celebration of life service will be held at 2 p.m. Tuesday, May 31, at the church. Meares & Jones Funeral Service is serving the family.

His “Favorite Ex Wife” and best of friend, Becky Singletary (this is how he hilariously introduced her).
