SINGER, Joseph Bronislaw After a long and rewarding life, Joseph Singer, architect, passed away in his 89th year at the Hamilton General Hospital in the late afternoon of April 1, 2013. He will be greatly missed by his wife Emmy, his sons Brian, Danny and Alex and their respective spouses, and perhaps most of all by his grandchildren, Ben, Nathan, Jacob, Zachary, Hannah, Kayleen and Isla. He is survived by his only brother Yehuda, living in Israel. Joseph was born in Cracow, Poland, and flew with a Polish squadron of the Royal Air Force during the last years of World War Two. Following the war, he studied architecture at the University of Glasgow, also obtaining a BSc in Engineering, and then worked for a short time in England with the Hertfordshire County Council, building innovative schools. In 1954 he settled in the Hamilton area and designed a large number of buildings, including houses, schools, shopping malls, apartment buildings, churches, synagogues and Shalom Village Nursing Home. In the years prior to his retirement, he also worked as Head of the Buildings and Maintenance Department for the Hamilton Board of Education, which was then housed in a building of his design. Funeral services will be held at Temple Anshe Sholom, 215 Cline Avenue North at 11 a.m. on Friday, April 5th. Shiva will be held on Saturday and Sunday evenings at 1770 Main Street West. Minyan services will be held at 7:30. If desired, donations can be made to Shalom Village Nursing Home.
