William Charles Simpson, 59, of Flowery Branch passed away on Saturday, March 5, 2011, at his residence.
The Guest Book is expired.
Mr. Simpson was born on Wednesday, June 27, 1951, in Hall County to William Hubbard Simpson and Maxine Smith Griffin. He was the grandson to Charlie and Willella Simpson and grandson to Charlie Ray and Lula Smith. He was also great nephew to Agnes Parker. Bill, as many knew him, enjoyed fishing, and he was a former member of North Hall Bass Club. He always attended family reunions so he could stay in touch with family members he didn't get to see often. He made a living for most of his life doing drywall, flooring and working in grocery stores like J & J Foods & Food Lion. Bill would spend time on the computer sharing jokes with friends through e-mails or playing with his cat, Nugget, that he found as a stray at McDonald's. You never saw Bill without a new joke to tell you. He was deeply loved and enjoyed by his family as well. He was a member of Community Baptist Church.
