Kenneth Simpson, a wonderful, kind, loving and selfless son. He formed steadfast friendships throughout his life while remaining true to his unwavering belief in fair play. Following a short illness, he passed away peacefully at his beloved Rancho Sin Plumas in Kaufman, TX.
Kenn was born in San Angelo, Texas on November 26, 1945, to Davis and Alma Simpson. Both parents preceded him in death.
Kenn attended Woodrow Wilson High School in Dallas, Texas and was honorably discharged from the U.S. Navel Reserves in 1968. He attended the University of North Texas where he studied Art, English and Industrial Arts and was a member of the Delta Sigma Phi fraternity.
Kenn’s first career was in retail sales at Woolf Brother’s in Dallas’ North Park Mall before moving into the telecommunications industry working with Simpson and Associates and TELCO Services. Following his retirement, Kenn dedicated several years to serving at Kaufman County Senior Citizen’s Services as their program manager. He divided his time between the Center and caring for his beloved mother, Alma Smith, as she fought a long battle with Alzheimer’s disease.
A private memorial will include reading a few of Kenn’s original poems. This poem is from one of his many private journals.
“Last Will…and Words”
After I am dead…
And I have gone to meet the Big Bow Hunter in the sky…
Let it be said of my life
That of all the loves I ever knew-- the one that meant the most to me –
Was being in love with life…
For it has shown me wonders that defy my imagination.
I have been loved – by way too many – and their love for me
Has always kept me around for one more hand.
But now it’s time to go…
