In memory of
Thomas "Tommy" Davis Simpson
Tommy began his life’s journey shortly before Thanksgiving in the year of 1941. November 16, the family of Clyde and Winnie Simpson welcomed their second born child into the family home in Clarendon Arkansas. Given the formal name of Thomas Davis Simpson he was blessed to share childhood activities with two siblings Robert and Linda. He received education in the local schools and became a 1959 graduate of Clarendon High School. He began a friendship with a young lady by the name of Margaret Oldham. After a time of courtship, they chose to make a life time commitment of marriage. The sweet ceremony was performed by Rev. Ray Palmer on August 24, 1962 in the First Baptist Church of Clarendon. Tommy and Margaret have remained vital members of the community throughout the years. Their home was blessed with two children Alan and Rhonda. Born with an outgoing spirit and friendly nature, Tommy was well known among the community. Employed at the Post Office for 42 years he enjoyed the comradery with the local patrons. The task of helping each with their various postal needs endeared him to those he met daily. In time the day came that he would step away from public work and he and Margaret began to enjoy the simple life of retirement.   Tommy was a faithful member of the First Baptist Church where he served as a Sunday School teacher for many years. Other community involvement included serving as a Past Master of Cache Masonic Lodge, on the Quorum Court, and as a baseball commissioner. He also enjoyed coaching baseball, and good round of competitive golf. In the early morning hours of June 19 2020, at the age of 78 Tommy passed away at Baptist Health Medical Center in Stuttgart. He was preceded in death by his parents. He is survived by: His wife Margaret Simpson, Son, Alan (Gina) of Bryant, Arkansas, Daughter, Rhonda (James) Boston of Clarendon, Arkansas, Brother, Robert Simpson of Searcy, Arkansas, Sister, Linda (Jimmy) Smallwood of Cabot, Arkansas, Four grandchildren. Clint Boston, Stephen Boston, Sydney Harrell, and Anna Simpson, and 7 great-grandchildren.
