Robert Leon Simpson, Jr.

 

Robert Leon Simpson, Jr.  passed away unexpectedly on Monday evening on September 4, 2023.   Our hearts our broken as we say goodbye to him.  Robert had a passion for life, especially paragliding across the United States and beyond with his fellow Buffalo Mountain Flyers.  Robert loved to cook, he is semi-famous for his tamales, and he loved the process of making homemade breads.  He was a golf enthusiast, loved traveling, loved time with friends and family.  He worked closely with his family in their commercial printing business, TCPrint Solutions.  Robert recently celebrated 38 years with the company.

Robert carried a joyful, happy, young-at-heart attitude.  He was kind and funny.  He loved big and he will be missed by many.

Robert is preceded in death by his mother, Diana McCord Simpson, grandparents Bill and Martha McCord, grandparents Walter and Katherine Simpson.

He is survived by his son Zachary “Cole” Simpson, his loving partner Olivia Morgan Snider, her son David, his father Robert “Bob” Leon Simpson (Dinah Tatum), sister Teresa (Mike) Graves, nephews Nick Killough, Blaine Killough and Trey Graves (Ashley). And many loving cousins, aunts and uncles.
