Charles Simms
Aug. 5, 1921 - Mar. 14, 2014
Resident of San Jose
Charles "Chuck" Simms went to be with the Lord on Friday, March 14th and was no doubt eager to see "Liz", his wife of 68 years, who preceded him.
Chuck was born August 5, 1921 in Paris, Texas. He worked as a tool design engineer at Lockheed for 56 years, beginning in Burbank, California and moving his family to San Jose, in 1959. He was a self-taught economist and enjoyed reading anything and everything around that topic, as well as government, the constitution, and the Bible. His book, "Sow Your Fallow Ground", was a 10-year endeavor which combined much of what he had learned in these areas, with the hope of helping others discover God and the importance of decision-making. Kind, compassionate, and intentional, Chuck lived with conviction, high ethics, and care for his "neighbor".
He is survived by his 3 sons, John, Mark and his wife Mary, Scott and his wife Laura, and many grandchildren and great grandchildren.
A Memorial Service will be held at Chapel of the Hills on Friday, March 21st at 11 AM, followed by an internment service at Los Gatos Memorial Park. Reception to follow at his home in San Jose.
