Brother Rodell Singleton was born on March 29, 1938 to the late Sidney and Maybell Singleton in Estill, SC. He was educated at Estill Training School, Estill, SC and eventually relocated to Boston, MA.
Rodell worked as a custodian at Dana Hall and retired from the New England Baptist Hospital of Boston, MA. Rodell loved the Lord and was a member of Second Thankful Baptist Church in Pineland, SC. After he relocated, he dedicated his life to Christ and joined Full Gospel Tabernacle Church in Brockton, MA under the leadership of the late Bishop Nathaniel Williams.
With a strong green thumb, Rodell loved gardening. He grew, tomatoes, green beans, collard greens, cabbage and more. He took pride in his garden and shared his vegetables with his neighbors. It was not a surprise for him to show up at a family or friend's house with a bag filled with tomatoes or green beans from his garden.
Rodell also had a love for cooking. He had the ability to cook a down home southern meal, which included black eyed peas and rice, collard greens, fried chicken, and macaroni and cheese. He was a man who loved to tell jokes; and he enjoyed having people around him to laugh. He was best known for his favorite sayings: "Bless your heart, "I'm kicking but not high", "Whatever" and "Get Outta Here".
In addition to his parents, Rodell was preceded in death by five brothers: Elder Thomas Singleton, Mr. James Fields, Mr. Roosevelt Fields, Elder Otis Singleton, and Deacon Joe Willie Singleton; and two sisters: Missionary Arvilder Singleton and Mrs. Betty Best.
Rodell departed this life on Wednesday, August 19, 2020.
He leaves to cherish his loving memory: his brother, Elder Jessie (Elder Queen Esther) Singleton Sr., Hampton, SC; Sisters-in-law: Joy Singleton, McDonough, GA and Yvonne Singleton, Brockton, MA; a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends
