Not sure what to say?

Goodbye Mr. Simpson, you will be greatly missed. You were a stalwart leader in the community, a giant among men, and a true legend of the Fox C-6 District. You were always there for the people that needed you, and your kindness and strong leadership will never be forgotten. Your legend will live on.

You are blessed my precious friend, Richard, and beautiful and sweet Wanda, Ruth Ann and Leah Anne. You were all angels in my life at a time of need, especially Mr. Richard Simpson, Senior. My family respected your family as you were truly an inspiration to us, as well as the model of wholesome family values. Thank you Grandma and Grandpa Simpson for raising Richard, senior, to be a Christian, a boy scout, a patriot, an educator, and most fondly, a kind soul. May God bless your family...

May God's Angels open those Heavenly Gates wide for his soul, and may the Angels wrap their wings around friends and family to console them. Richard was such a wonderful man, the world is so much better because of him.

The Roy Hesser Family

Sorry to hear of Richard's passing. I have many memories of him as the principal at Fox High School and as an active member of St. Mark Church. Our family much appreciated the kindness he showed our mother, especially in her later years when Richard and Wanda would go out of their way to pick her up so she could attend church. Sincerest condolences.

Ruth Ann, Breck and Family,
We are holding you all in our hearts and in our prayers.
Pat and Regina Edwards

I am deeply saddened by the passing of Mr. Richard Simpson. It was my privilege and honor to work with him as his Secretary in the Administration Office of the Fox C-6 School District. He was always appreciative and supportive of me. He will be missed very much both in the District and the Arnold community. My sincere sympathy to all of his family.

On behalf of the Fox High School Class of 1974, we want to thank you for your dedication and leadership. As our Principal, you created a positive, respectful learning environment that supported student success!
With love and appreciation,
Paul and Richelle Zimmermann
