Willie Simpson Obituary

Willie Tyrone Simpson began his earthly journey on March 3, 1951, in Toano, Va. He was the oldest of three children born to Willie and Martha Simpson.

At an early age, Willie was baptized and joined Chickahominy Baptist Church. Willie was raised in Toano and attended the Williamsburg-James City County Public Schools, graduating from James Blair High School In 1969.

Between the years of 1970-1974, Willie was blessed with five children. In 1991, he met his loving wife, Judy. It was from this point that Judy and Willie became best friends. The two were united in holy matrimony in 2009.
