Robert “Bob” Hoffman Singelman was born on September 6, 1935 in Breckenridge, MN to Welford and Lila (Hoffman) Singelman.  He grew up in the Wahpeton, ND and Mooreton, ND area and graduated from Wahpeton High School.  He played basketball and baseball, winning the state championship in baseball. After high school, Bob enlisted in the U.S. Army where he was stationed in Germany, Austria, and Italy.

After his honorable discharge, Bob returned home and was united in marriage to Lonnie Lehman on April 23, 1960, at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Breckenridge.  The couple resided in Wahpeton for the entire 58 years they were married, where they raised their two daughters, Shane and Shelley.

He enjoyed dancing with Lonnie, hunting, old pro softball, golf, trying his luck playing scratch offs, and spending time at the lake going for walks to pick flowers for his wife and fishing with Vern. He will be remembered for the wonderful dad and grandfather he was, always teaching and telling his stories. He was a member of St. John’s Catholic Church, the American Legion, and the VFW.  He loved his dog Sparky…”isn’t that right Sparky.”

Bob is survived by his daughters, Shane (Steve) Dale, Wahpeton, ND, and their children, Kayla (Wade) Maudal, Wahpeton, Kari (Rob) Patton, Bismarck, ND; Shelley (Don) Luebke, Mantador, ND, and their son Robert (Fiancé Kaitlyn) Lugert, Fargo, ND; four great-grandchildren, Briar, Bryson, Nolan, and Raegan; siblings, Bill (Doris) Singelmann, Jim (Gail) Singelmann, Marlys Smith; and several nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Lonnie; parents, Welford and Lila; and his niece, Tammie.
