Loss of a Great Man
David G. Singer

    A great man, an amazing friend, and caring individual.  I knew David for only six short years.  I met him looking for a Job in my field of Graphic Design, which he was in need of for this paper. He saw my talents right away and hired me on the spot. Working with David was sometimes frustrating, but always enjoyable. His personality could be felt and especially heard long before you came face to face with him. Always announcing his arrival or letting people know who they were talking to on the phone before they finished saying “Hi”.
    Four and a half years later, David was preparing to involve himself further into the Luxor Shriners, to help them, help kids. Thinking he would not be able to put the time into this paper that he felt it deserved, he was kind enough to offer it to me.  After negotiations he sold it to me. I valued the focus of the paper he built and plan to always keep that focus.  Since then he was always there to help me, every step of the way to continue to build the paper.  I will miss David, he was a good friend.
- Nicholas Vardy - Publisher

    David G. Singer 69, of Riverview, with his family at his side, passed away peacefully at The Moncton Hospital on Wednesday, April 8, 2009. Born in Manchester, England, he was the son of Edith (Gammage) Singer of Riverview and the late Frank Singer. David was the former owner and publisher of the Riverview County Chronicle and a former employee of Thompson Newspapers. David was a member of Howard Lodge #15 F & AM, Hillsborough, member and past Chief Rabban of Luxor Shrine Temple, Saint John, member and past president of the Moncton Shrine Club, member of York Rite and Scottish Rite, past president of the Luxor Shrine Oriental Band and past president of the Riverview Boys & Girls Club. David’s favorite hobbies included supporting the Shriners and enjoying time in his backyard watching his Koi fish.
    Besides his mother, Edith, David will be sadly missed by his wife of 22 years, Ilana (Sarbit) Singer; brother-in-law, Jay Sarbit (Gayl), Kelowna, BC; several nieces, nephews, cousins and his many friends.
    The Funeral service was held at Tiferes Israel Synagogue, Moncton, Sunday, April 12, 2009 at 11:30 am. and now lays in  Tiferes Israel Cemetery, Dieppe.
    No flowers by personal request. In David’s memory, donations to the Moncton Shrine Club Transportation Fund or NB Heart & Stroke Foundation would be appreciated.
