Irwin W. Singleton
Irwin Weslie Singleton, 72, of Augusta, and formerly of Medford, passed away peacefully on May 25, 2020, at Mayo Clinic Health System-Eau Claire. A visitation and service was held on Saturday, May 30 at First Baptist Church of Augusta with burial in Medford Evergreen Cemetery II. Irwin was born March 1, 1948, in Medford to Herbert and Edna (Knoll) Singleton. He was always a worker. He worked at Black River Industries in Medford for 25 years, and part-time at Reach in Eau Claire for the past seven years. He enjoyed Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson and all types of Country and Christian Gospel music. He was a Cowboy at heart. The last few years his health deteriorated dramatically, but still liked doing what he could. He never complained about anything.
A reflection by Irwin’s Lindgren family. It is with mixed emotions that we share that our “Uncle” Irvie (Irwin Singleton) went home to be with Jesus on May 25, 2020. Irwin joined our family over 31 years ago. He was with us as our children grew up, and as 11 of our grandchildren were born and have grown. He loved them, and was loved by all who knew him. He lived in the Jump River area until our move to Augusta in 2013. He was a man of few words, but made friends with everyone. We were so blessed by the years we had together. He taught us much about the simplicity of life. He always saw the good and joy of the moment. We were so blessed to be able to take him to Texas, and through all the “Cowboy” states this last winter. He was able to get a “real” Deputy Badge, see the ocean and get his captains hat!
Irwin will be greatly missed by his family, brother, Harvey Singleton; sister, Elsie Mesner; Craig and Julie Lindgren Sr, Craig and Hannah Lindgren (Jude, Titus, Ari and TBA), Ryan and Krista Keepers (Evangeline, Micah, Asher and Gideon), Tony and Kari Devivo (Anthony, Aryanna and Avielle), Kayla Sauer (Lynnix), Kyle Lindgren; and many family and friends.
Irwin was preceded in death by his father, Herbert in March of 1972; mother, Edna in July of 2015; and brother, Franklin in June of 1997.
