Paul Singer Obituary

My father, Paul Singer, passed away on June 21, 2012. For a long time he had been suffering from Parkinsons, dementia, and a variety of other illnesses. In the end, he died a painless death, and we will all miss him.

The funeral home handling his cremation posted an obituary that was somewhat lacking and a tiny bit inaccurate, so I wrote a new one and sent it to the Cincinnati Enquirer. Nowhere on their contact page did it list how much it cost to post an obituary, so imagine my surprise when the bill came to $600. Needless to say, my poor father won't be listed in the Enquirer obituaries.

Therefore, I am posting the rewritten obituary here in my blog.

If any family members or friends wish to attend the memorial service, please email me at allen at for the address. Due to a lack of insurance funds, there will be no funeral.

Please post any final thoughts or remembrances in the comments.
