Buck Little Singer left this world to return to the Great Spirit, our Creator, on Friday, Feb 25, 2011. He was born June 8, 1991 in Flagstaff to Monty A. Singer and Pattie Whitehat Singer. He was of the Reed clan and born for the Honeycomb clan. His maternal grandfathers are of the Salt clan and his paternal grandfathers are of the Red Bottom clan. He battled heart disease for seven months.
Buck graduated from Coconino High School in 2009. He attended Dzil Libei Elementary, Cromer Elementary and Mount Elden Middle School.
His joy in life was football - he lived, ate, and slept football. He could tell you the statistics of any team and any player. His favorite pro teams were the Colts and the Cardinals. He also played football at Coconino High School. Go Panthers! He was known for encouraging his fellow teammates, friends and brothers. He is often heard saying, "Look at me, I may not run very fast, but I played football. If I can do it you can. Never say you can't, take that word 'can't' out of your vocabulary."
He enjoyed coaching the Flagstaff Cardinals of the Flagstaff Youth Football League. What he loved the most is knowing his younger brothers played football also and that he taught them all his inside tricks.
He worked at Cedar Safeway during his high school years and then moved over to Walmart at Woodlands Village. He thoroughly enjoyed working with his co-workers who all said what a responsible person he was and a joy to have around. Whether it was co-workers, family or friends, Buck touched many lives in his young life and the world is better for the impact he made and the light of hope he left with us.
He is survived by his parents, Monty A. Singer and Pattie Whitehat Singer, his sister and two young brothers.
A memorial service will be held on Tuesday, March 1 at 10 a.m. at Norvel Owens Mortuary. Burial will follow at the Flagstaff Calvary Cemetery.
