A celebration of life for Easton Emmanuel Singleton, 17, of Alto, was held at 4 p.m. Sunday, April 29, at the Torch Worship Center with Pastor Joseph Tucker, Pastor Tim Beasley and Pastor Jason Thornton officiating. Burial followed in New Bridge Baptist Church cemetery with the Rev. W.A. Jenkins officiating.

Mr. Singleton died Thursday, April 26, 2012, from injuries sustained in an automobile accident.

Easton was currently a junior at Habersham Central High School and was a proud and dedicated teammate of the Raider Football Team, where every Friday, during football season, was spent being the “Day of the Raider.” He enjoyed the outdoors, especially hunting and fishing, and he attended Life Church in Baldwin.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Wayne Shirley, Steve Bulischeck and the Rev. Woodrow Hix; and uncle, Perry Shirley.

Survivors include his parents, Sonya and Reggie Hix of Alto and Steve Singleton of Gainesville; sister, who always called him “Bubba,” PresLee Hix of Alto; grandparents, Diane Roach of Cleveland, Patricia Goodwin of Augusta and Linda Hix of Alto; girlfriend, Cassidy Davidson of Turnerville; also surviving are numerous friends and teammates.

Memorials may be made to the Habersham Central Touchdown Club, P.O. Box 725, Cornelia, GA 30531.

Easton brought joy and laughter to those around him with two of many quotes: “Beast of the East” and “If you show me someone who enjoys losing, I’ll show you a loser.”
