Harold E. “Chip” Singley, III. passed away suddenly on July 29th, 2019 at Baylor Scott and White in Temple, Texas surrounded by those that loved him the most. He was born in Lewistown, Pennsylvania on the 7th of June, 19 Hundred and 53 (as he would say) to Harold, Jr. and Wanda Bannon-Singley. He graduated from Killeen High School in 1971 and chose to remain in Killeen, Tx for the remainder of his adult life in order to stay close to the community and the people that he cared so deeply about. Harold was a talented craftsman and a hard worker. He was a gifted storyteller (with some of his tales being more truthful than others). Harold had a wonderful kindness that exuded from his every pore and a lightness that infected anyone who was lucky enough to receive one of his hugs. Harold had many passions in his life. He loved Reese’s peanut butter cups and soda water. He loved a good overcooked hamburger and a cold beer. He loved his job and the folks that he worked with. He loved his dog, Ram, who shadowed him everywhere that he went. He loved Christmas time with family and was known to don a Santa costume just to get the party going. Harold deeply loved the people in his life. He was the happiest sitting at the table of his sister, enjoying a cold beer with his buddy, “Earl”. His family would be packed into the kitchen nearby in hopes of hearing what crazy and hilarious thing would be said next. To Harold, nothing beat spending time with his family. He was there for you when you needed him, without question. That’s the type of person he was. Above and beyond anything else in his life, Harold loved his sons, JR and Nick, and he loved his wife, “my Jenny” as he was known to say. He loved them deeply and without end. Harold was preceded in death by his wife, Jenny E. Singley,and his parents Harold E. and Wanda J. Singley. He is survived by his son JR Singley and wife Kristen, of Austin, Texas, and his son Nicholas Singley, of New Braunfels, Texas. Also surviving is his brother Jeff Singley and his wife Liz, of Coppell, Texas; his sister, Cheryl Penebaker and husband Wayne, of Killeen, Texas; and his brother Tim Singley and wife Sherri, of Bulverde, Texas. He was loved by many and it is an understatement to say that he will be deeply missed. He was a kind, loving, and good man and the world will be a little less light without the amazing “Harpoon” Harold. Visitation will be held Friday, August 2nd from 6-8 pm and a memorial service will be held on Saturday, August the 3rd at 11 am. Both of which will be held at Crawford Bowers Funeral Home Chapel.
