Obituary for WILLIAM SIMMS

William "Willie" Simms was born on February 10, 1930 to the late Elizabeth Emerson and Benjamin Simms. On Sunday, January 25, 2015 God extended his almighty hand of love and called Willie to eternal rest.

Willie was raised on a farm in Sunderland, MD and later worked in construction. He enjoyed farming, gardening and raising tobacco. You would often see him mowing his lawn on his pride and joy " his lawnmower".

Willie was united in Holy Matrimony to Cecelia Watkins on December 28, 1986.

He gave his life to Christ and did not miss a day without giving God all the praise. He was a member of the Church of God, where he served as an Usher and Trustee. He was a very dedicated worker in the church, he will be truly missed.

He loved watching baseball and football, his favorite teams were the Baltimore Orioles and the Washington Redskins. He loved talking on the phone with his son Eric, Norman Hurley and his niece Josephine Thompson . He also enjoyed sitting on the porch and talking the evening away with his friend Lester Johnson.

Willie leaves to cherish his memories, his wife of 28 years Cecelia, his children Stacey Smith (Spike) of Sunderland, MD; Janice Lake (Marshall) of Lexington Park, MD; Rhonda Simms, North Beach, MD and Eric Simms (Mary) of Fort Meade, MD. Ten grandchildren, six great-grandchildren and three great-great grandchildren. Three sisters-in-laws; Lilly Pearson (Robert), Rachel Contee (James) and Sarah Johnson (Lester) and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

He was preceded in death by three children Melita, Kelly, Brentford, and two sisters Lucy Coates and Helen Fullmore.
