It is with the saddest of hearts that I announce the passing of my truest love.

Daniel Denton Simpson passed away on Monday, August 21st, 2017 with family by his side. He was 75 years old. Born January 26th, 1942 in Elizabeth, NJ he lived for a brief time in North Arlington, NJ but spent his childhood in Ocean Grove.

Daniel was a career military man who first joined the service in 1960 directly out of high school. While in the Navy he decided that after his service time was up he would join the United States Air Force and Air National Guard. For 39 years he served his country with pride and honor. Daniel belonged to the Lacey Twsp. First Aid Squad for many years. He was also a Past Chief and Life Member of the Lanoka Harbor Fire Department. Once retired from the Air Force, Daniel worked as a Class I Special Officer for the Lacey Twsp. Police Dept. for 9 additional years.

Danny is survived by his wife Debra Simpson, Daughter Diamond Frandsen (Husband Robert Frandsen), Son Christopher P. Simpson, Grandson Christopher P. Simpson Jr. and his beloved four legged pal "Woody". Some of his favorite past times include spending time on his wooded property in upstate NY and to watch the wild ponies while visiting Chincoteague Island Va.
