In Memoriam: Donald Simpson (Oct. 26, 1954 – May 16, 2023)

Donald Simpson

Don Simpson grew up on a farm in Wisconsin and fixed up a house in the country to raise his family in Oregon. 

He had no need to go “ramming around,” with Sunday mornings for church and the rest of the week for carpentry, sports, politics, projects and hanging out with friends and family, often by the fire pit. 

He hosted great Fourth of July celebrations, Perseid meteor shower viewings, and Easter vigil fires. 

Don is survived by his wife, Toni; his children, Ben and Leslie; and ten of his 11 siblings.

He was preceded in death by his parents, John and Agnes Simpson of Durand, Wisconsin, and his brother, Mike.

A Mass was held May 25 at St. Paul’s Catholic Church in Silverton, Oregon.

In lieu of flowers donations may be made to Benedictine Sisters of Mount Angel, Oregon.

Arrangements made by Unger Funeral Chapel.
