Singleton, Sr. (1913 - 2001) Highway, “A portion of South Carolina Highway 61 in Dorchester County from Walterboro Road to the southernmost intersection of Old Beech Hill Road.”  Clement A. Singleton, Sr., while employed at the Charleston Air Force Base, was awarded the "U.S. Air Force Certificate of Safety," for improving safety procedures in loading and unloading the C-130 Hercules military transport aircraft. Clement A. Singleton, Jr. (1941-2019), "Red Road," SC, was a true student of learning and life.

Written in his obituary: “Clement Jr. served during the Vietnam War as a Sergeant in the US Army’s 1st Infantry Division, Black Lions Battalion (1965). Upon completion of active duty, he started a 37-year career (1966 – 2003) with MeadWestvaco Corporation, Charleston, SC. Clement was the first African American to integrate then 'West Virginia Pulp and Paper’s' Maintenance Department. Clement rose to the level of Journeyman 5, the highest skilled grade level within his department. He served a term as the Machinist Union Shop Steward. May his amazing extraordinary occupational skills; Masonic blessings and Christian faith continue to live on in all of us.”
