It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of James "Daddy-O" Simpson who left us peacefully on April 22nd in a room filled with love as we gathered around and witnessed his final moments. For those who knew my father in law, they will know that he was a man to make no apologies, told it like it was, carried the nickname "grumpy old man" with pride. But he loved his family and friends with every ounce of his heart. Jim was an amazing father, brother, uncle, and friend, but his title of Daddy-O to his grandchildren was the one he honoured whole heartedly until the day he left us. Our hearts are broken, but our lives are for the better knowing that we were blessed to spend so many wonderful years with him. We will carry these memories with us for all eternity. Until we meet again..."Talk at ya later" A great soul serves everyone all the time. A great soul never dies. It brings us together again and again. A simple celebration, a gathering of friends; here is wishing you great happiness, a joy that never ends... Please join us as we Celebrate the life of James Simpson on Saturday May 19, 2018 6PM - 12AM (open house style - come and go as you please) at: Army Navy & Air Force Veterans Club 1649 Weston Road Toronto Overflow parking available on adjacent side streets.

Please share this invite to those who knew Jim and would want to celebrate his life with his loved ones. For those who knew Jim, they will know that he was a man to make no apologies, told it like it was, carried the nickname "grumpy old man" with pride. But he loved his family and friends with every ounce of his heart, and would go out of his way to help anyone in need. Jim was an amazing father, brother, uncle, and friend, but his title of Daddy-O to his grandchildren was the one he honoured whole heartedly until the day he left us. He was one of the strongest men I knew and he fought so hard everyday for just a little more time with us. Our hearts are broken, but our lives are for the better knowing that we were blessed to spend so many wonderful years with him. We will carry these memories with us for all eternity. We want to extend this invite to all of you because somewhere somehow, we have all been impacted by having Jim in our lives. He wanted us all to get together to share stories, memories and laughter - and A LOT of drinks as we reminisce on the 70 years he lived and celebrated in life.
