Jordon, We just found out about your father. I had only met him once but I have heard you talk about him a lot. May God surround you with Peace, comfort and understanding as to why he called him home so early. Praying for you, Sydney, and your mom. Please stay in touch, we love you !

Donnie Simpson was a great man, official, and friend. I'm so sorry that I was out of town when he passed and didn't get to pay my last respects. Whether he was calling me for leads on a landman job, talking about playing golf, or recalling our last football or basketball game, I always laughed and smiled during the call (if you ever got off the phone). Truly a kind soul who will be missed by all who knew him. RIP 'The Ref"

I didn't know you long but I enjoyed working with you. You were a great teacher and mentor. To the family, I will keep you in my prayers. Remember nothing is lost when you know where it is. I just believe Donnie is in the presence of Jesus

Having officiated basketball with Donnie Simpson, I can recall referring many enjoyable games with him. He was always happy and smiling. There was never a dull moment when he was around. Heaven has gained a great man and we have lost a treasure. I pray you will remember every funny story and every hearty laugh, even through your sorrow.

I will miss you my brother. I want the rest of your life to be in peace as you deserve. You were a fascinating guy and someone I'll think about often. I'll see you again one day!! Until then. Save me a good spot!! I love you and your family!! I'll be there for them all.

So sorry for your loss, Sydney. In prayer for you and your family. Hugs.

Donnie was a great man, official, and mentor to all who knew him. I was thankful to call football and baseball with Donnie. Thank you for your help. Donnie was a class act, and funny. He always had something to say that worth remembering either be a better official or to laugh while others where stressed around.

Prayers of peace and comfort for the Simpson family and friends.

To the family: Donnie always loved what he did. As an umpire you have to put up with a lot. I know when I was coaching and he worked many of my games,regardless of the outcome or if I thought he missed a call. After the game it was over and we always remained friends.
Donnie dropped by Bossier High a couple of weeks ago when school was out to visit. I was tying up some lose ends with our financial statement. Donnie pullednout his check book and wrote a check for $100 andmtold me to...
