September 11, 1934 - March 2, 2014. Bill was born to Margaret May Simpson, the kindest, hardest working and loving mother. He had the honor of having his sister Edna to hold hands with through the rough times of their childhood. Bill said, "Don't cry for my childhood. It made me the man I am today". He made sure when the time came, to bring his mom to his home and make sure she lived the life she always deserved.
Bill and his wife Joen were together for 60 years. They grew up, and together over those years. They built their house and made sure their children would have a safe and loving home. They enjoyed going to Canada year after year, fishing with many family members and friends. The stories are endless of these times.
Stan Jarosz and Bill met in the 70's and became best of friends then business partners. They worked hard and played harder. Bill loved and respected Stan with all his heart. In 30 years of business they never had one fight. That's saying something about their love and respect for each other. Bill said a few months ago that when the day came, he knew Stan would meet him at the pearly gates with a beer and a tee time at Pebble Beach. Candy asked, "Why do you think Mom won't meet you?". He said he would have to go find Paul Newman and that is where he would find Joen!
Bill said there is one person in your life that whenever you called them or needed anything at any time they were there. Donna McCarty was that person for him. He loved her dearly and was grateful for her and Joen's close bond.
Anka was his Ohio girlfriend. Bill loved Anka and was proud of the way she took over Pro Fab and kept it going as a booming business. He wanted her to know he will always watch over her and the days in January they spent together were a joyful goodbye…for now.
Bill is survived by son Kelly D. Simpson, daughter Kassandra "Candy" (Richard) Ulrich, grandchildren William (Colleen) Ulrich, Kelly Ann (Nolan) Simpson-Lanahan, and great granddaughter Allison S. Ulrich; and his daughter in law Jean Simpson.
