A resident of London, formerly of Ridgetown, Gary Simpson passed away at the London Health Sciences Centre University Hospital on August 27, 2020 at the age of 86.
Born in Chatham Township, Gary was the son of the late Duncan and Zelma (Cosby) Simpson.
Beloved and cherished husband of Lois Simpson (nee Langstaff).
Survived by his children, Laurie Simpson and Lee Simpson, both of London.
Sadly missed by many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
As per his wishes, cremation has taken place with a private internment at Morpeth Cemetery at a later date.
Gary was a farmer, teacher, a voracious reader, and a lover of nature, people, and animals. He was also a storyteller, and one of his great joys was to gather round with others (preferably at the dinner table) and enjoy stories of past adventures and stories of the people that shared in them.
Donations made in memory of Gary to a charity of choice would be appreciated.
