John Robert Simpson, a loving husband, father, brother, uncle, cousin, and grandfather, passed away on Saturday, October 14, 2023. He was born on May 27, 1939, to his parents, Norman Robert "Pete" Simpson and Golda (Callam) Simpson. John was united in marriage with his beloved wife, Wanda (White) Simpson, on December 22, 1960.
John's journey through life led him down various career paths, initially working as a skilled tool and die maker and later becoming a self-employed welder. He took pride in his work, demonstrating dedication and expertise in his chosen profession. John's proudest accomplishment was his forty-two years of sobriety and his involvement in AA. He enjoyed whittling, spending time with friends at the Palmyra, Sav-A-Step, and being with his family.
John was preceded in death by his parents, Pete and Golda Simpson, wife Wanda (White) Simpson and one brother, Donnie Simpson. He leaves behind a legacy of love and cherished memories in the hearts of his surviving family members. John is survived by his son, Brad (Kerrie) Simpson, and four daughters, Johnna Bledsoe, Janine (Jeff) West, Janelle (CT) Vest, and Sally Banet.
His legacy also lives on through three grandsons: Nathan Simpson, Nicholas and Zackery Sneed as well as four granddaughters: Serena Simpson, Isabelle and Amelia Banet, and Delana Bledsoe. John's great-grandson, Liam Simpson, brings further joy to the family tree.
In addition to his immediate family, John is survived by his brother, Kenny Simpson.
