Born August 4, 1957, he was the son of the late Vincent Clark Simpson, Sr. and Margaret Bessie Simpson (Allen).
Besides his parents, Timothy was predeceased by his brother Jeffery Simpson and his sisters Sally Tompkins (Simpson) and Kathy Colvin (Simpson).
Tim was a house painter for over 35 collective years. He was proud of his work and his clients, always boasting about their accomplishments.
Fishing was his favorite hobby and his skill (some called it luck) has yet to be rivaled. Fish stories abound but these tales were true. Tim also spent time playing poker. His insightfulness (some called it luck) won him many hands, but he has never lost a friend. Tim also found joy in the silver screen and usually went to the movies at least 3 times a week. He liked to bring others with him to also enjoy the films and at times went to the same movie more than once if he really liked it. In 1994, he saw The Lion King in theater 5 times. Tim stayed active. He played semi-pro football in his younger days and then on to pick-up games of football, basketball, and baseball with the neighborhood kids. Sports were a big part of his life and he enjoyed watching his favorite teams the Yankees and the Cowboys. Summers were always fun as a trip to The Great Escape was a family tradition. He enjoyed the shows, especially the country western song and dances. Tim (known as Big Tim by neighborhood kids) was a kind man who saw the good in everyone and tried to fix all of their problems. Many people have learned valuable life lessons with his sound advice and have done better for themselves because of his encouragement. Time spent with his family brought Tim happiness and he cherished every moment. He watched countless sports games, attended recitals, plays, and ceremonies. He was proud of those he loved, proud to be part of his family, and proud to call you his friend.
