Frank W. Singleton, Jr. passed away at his home in Chesapeake, VA, on October 28, 2022, after a long illness. He was a loving husband and father and an enthusiastic golfer, hunter, and poker player.
He worked for more than 30 years in the healthcare industry where he helped found Children’s Specialty Group, a physician-owned, multi-specialty pediatric practice dedicated to teaching, patient care, and research. Frank used his business savvy and his straight-talking to help the physicians, partners, and staff of CSG provide medical services to the children of Hampton Roads and beyond. He was particularly proud of enabling the work of Drs. Kenji Cunnion and Neel Krishna, whose life-saving research could revolutionize the care of autoimmune and inflammatory diseases in infants.
Frank loved spending time on his family farm in the Blue Ridge Mountains and on the golf course with his friends. He enjoyed taking his beloved rescue beagle for long walks to sniff out rabbits, liked cooking (especially ribs and Thai food), and was a long-suffering Washington Commanders fan. Frank will be remembered for his dependability, his sense of humor, and his love for his friends and family. He will be deeply missed.
He is survived by his wife, Bonnie, daughter, Kelly, and brother, Donald. In lieu of flowers the family asks that donations be made to the ASPCA or your local animal shelter. No funeral is being held, but a celebration of life event is planned for the future. Details will be provided at a later date.
