Celebration of Life

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.

Frank Singleton, Jr. passed away on October 28, 2022, leaving behind many treasured friends and family. We now plan to come together in June, the month of his birth, to share fond memories and good conversation as we celebrate his life. This gathering will be held on June 21, 2023, from 6:00pm to 8:00pm at the Town Point Club in downtown Norfolk. Light refreshments will be provided. The address is: 101 W Main St Suite 300, Norfolk, VA 23510

Dear Bonnie

I was so shocked to receive the invitation today for the reception on June 21
I was not aware that Frank had been sick and passed this October.
As a physician with CSG, I worked closely with him and always appreciated what he did to make CSG not only a reality, but make it thrive as a practice group.
My deepest condolences go out to you and your family.
I will plan on being at TPC on June 21

Frank had a major impact on my life and I will miss him dearly. I would not have ended up coming back to CHKD without Frank’s efforts. I learned so much from Frank about the business of medicine and more importantly, about more effectively dealing with people. Frank had a remarkable ability to look at a situation and understand the issues and how to proceed most effectively. He also understood what motivated or worried individuals and used that insight in negotiations. I marveled at the way he negotiated with the medical school and the hospital to get the best outcome for the subspecialty group.

Frank also encouraged me to play golf and we enjoyed many weekends on the links. During those times he frequently talked about Kelly and was proud of what she was doing. Although golf became frustrating for Frank over time, I learned that no matter how much he may have struggled during the round, you never wanted to bet him lunch on who would win the 18th hole. I ended up paying way too often.

Frank was a big reason I joined Children’s specialty Group. He really made it what it is today. An incredible group to be part of. He was such a fun guy to talk to and always a straight shooter. He will be dearly missed. RIP. ??

As a golf pro, I had the privilege of serving Frank at several area courses over a period of about 30 years. Frank was always a kind and friendly person, a tough but fair competitor and a good sportsman, win or lose. RIP Frank.
