Obituary

Michael A Simpson of Jeannette died Friday, February 18th, 2022 in  Excela Health Westmoreland Hospital. He was born November 11, 1952 to the late Chester Paul Simpson and Cecil Curtis (Blackwell) Simpson. He is preceded in death by his beloved wife Beverly R Simpson whom he was married to for 39 years. As well as late brothers Jesse Simpson, Wallace Simpson, a late sister Diane K Lewis, and a granddaughter Mycalia Thompson. He is survived by four daughters Cassandra  Simpson, Michelle Simpson, Destinee Simpson, and McKenna Thompson, three grandchildren Savayea Hudson, Michael Simpson, and Angelica Simpson, two brothers David Simpson (Mary Simpson) and Patrick Simpson three sisters Nancy Simpson, Carol Harris, and Debbie Simpson as well as numerous nieces and nephews. He had a strong Catholic faith. Michael worked many years at both the Elliott Company and OMNOVA. After retiring he spent his time with his family, driving around town with his music and Mercedes, and shooting pool. We will deeply miss our father/pappy. The Simpson Siblings write this : Our beloved brother, Michael Allen was our gentle giant. His size certainly belied his true personality. Michael was kind, considerate, and generous to a fault when he saw the need for any or all of his qualities. He was concerned with families being hungry, children needing clothing especially in cold weather, and people not being treated fairly upon giving of themselves to improve and sustain employment success for themselves and their employers. He realized it was a two way street. We could enumerate donations, food and clothing he donated to organizations caring for the needy. Those organizations know who they are and how generous our brother was. We Simpson siblings are heartbroken at losing Michael. We were raised by a mother and father who instilled in us children to love and respect one another forever because at the end of it all, family is everything.We are now 5 from 9 siblings and each death has left a loss that never goes away. We love you forever Michael. The prayer is that we will all be together someday. Lastly but of such importance we would like to give a heartfelt Thank You to the team of physicians, nurses and allied health professionals who worked tirelessly to give Michael every opportunity to survive his illness. God bless you all.  Friends will be received Thursday from 2-4 and 6-8 PM in Mason-Gelder Funeral Home Inc. 201 N. First St. Jeannette.  To send online condolences visit www.mason-gelder.com.
