William Andrew (Bill) Singer (April 24, 1917 to June 16, 2011) was a respected Ames attorney, community leader, decorated veteran, and a devoted family man with an active volunteer spirit.

Bill graduated from Newton High School, the University of Iowa, and later the University of Iowa Law School. He joined the U.S. Air Force in 1942. Following his training Bill was stationed with the 384th Bomb Group at Grafton-Underwood, England. He was lead navigator on the B-17, “Flying Fortress,” until his plane was shot down over Germany during his 17th mission. He was captured and remained a prisoner of war until victory in England was declared. He received a Purple Heart for injuries sustained in the line of duty. Bill's USAF assignments included duty stations in Alabama and Omaha, Nebraska. He remained on active duty during the Korean conflict, serving in the Judge Advocates Office at SAC Headquarters, Omaha, Nebraska. He retired at SAC AFB with the rank of Colonel. Following World War II, Bill married Virginia Russell August 5, 1945, in Ft. Madison, Iowa.

Bill joined the Pasley and Singer Law Firm in September 1948 and practiced civil law until his retirement in 1997, at the age of 75.

Bill was a member of the 384th Bomb Group Association, the American Ex-Prisoner of War Association, and the 8th Air Force Historical Society. Bill was active in several civic groups. He served as President of the Ames Junior Chamber of Commerce, the Ames Chamber of Commerce, and the Story County Bar Association.
