Robert Wayne Simpson, “Bob”, passed away in the early morning hours on December 27, 2019, in Savannah.
Bob was born in Pekin, Illinois on November 30, 1953, to Wayne Simpson and Janica Mae Losey Simpson.
Bob was a funny, friendly guy who literally never met a stranger. He was refreshingly direct and honest and had a great sense of humor. He loved fishing for catfish, the Atlanta Braves, playing poker and being on the water. He also enjoyed raising Hereford cattle, growing tomatoes and pouring hot sauce on everything.
Bob is survived by his wife of 33 years, Joanne Bass Simpson, his son, Rob (Melissa) Simpson, his daughter, Tomi (Sean) Ready, his three granddaughters, Caroline, Abbey and Lily, his two nieces, Taylor and Andrea, his nephews, Nick and Adam. He was very close to his brother Mark and sister-in-law, Reva. He was also survived by his sister, Kim (Alan) Gudzinskas.
A celebration of life will be held on Sunday, January 5, 2020, at 2 pm at the Tybee Island American Legion Post #154, where Bob was a member and served on the executive board.Print This Obituary & Condolences
