James Allen Singer
James Allen Singer, 76, a resident of Lee County, FL for the past 30 years, formerly of Denver, CO, and Hawaii, passed away Sunday, July 24, 2022 in Cape Coral, FL. He was born August 1, 1945 in Seattle, WA.
He joined military service, going to Boot Camp in the 60’s and eventually retiring from the US Coast Guard after over 20 years of active and reserve service. While in Hawaii he earned his MS in Science at Chaminade University of Hawaii. He later taught science and math at Alva Elementary. Jim also was a shipwright working in boat design and construction. His last work was as a millwright building postal sorting machines. Jim loved sailing and considered himself quite a sailor. For a while he belonged to the Fort Myers Yacht Club, and he owned several sailboats during his life. His favorite was his 30-foot Seafarer Swift sure. Jim didn’t like conflict and instead deferred to use humor by telling bad jokes. Some so bad they were actually funny. He loved Hawaiian music and working on boats and old cars.
Loved by many and missed by all.
He is survived by his beloved wife of 20 years, Delores “Dee” Singer of Cape Coral; two loving children, Michael Healy (Vicki) of Cape Coral, and James Healy of Mauldin, SC; as well as many more loving family members.
Private family services will be held.
Mullins Memorial Funeral Home & Cremation Service, Cape Coral, is entrusted with final care.
