Rest in Peace, Elijah Singleton, Jr.


PolitickerNJ extends condolences to Assemblyman Troy Singleton (D-7) and his family.

The assemblyman lost his father last night.

Elijah Singleton, Jr. died after a short battle with colon cancer. The Assemblyman’s mother, Delores Singleton, died in 2012.

On his Facebook page today, Assemblyman Singleton posted a quote of his father’s: “You don’t always get the opportunity to live your dreams, but you must live your responsibilities.”

In honor of Elijah Singleton, from the poet Delmore Schwartz:

“Love is the most difficult and dangerous form of courage. Courage is the most desperate, admirable and noble kind of love.”

                  In Dreams begin Responsibilities

Rest in Peace, Elijah Singleton, Jr.
