David Lorence Simpson January 21, 1941 ~ October 17, 2021 (age 80)

Rail Road Flat, CA...David Lorence Simpson January 21, 1941 ~ October 17, 2021 (age 80). David was born in Alhambra, California to Marjorie and Lloyd Simpson. The family moved to Rail Road Flat, California when David was about three years old. The hard working family established the 7S Ranch and a saw mill on the property. David attended the Rail Road Flat Elementary School and graduated from Calaveras High School in San Andreas in 1961. After graduation, David worked for a crane company in Stockton as a parts runner and security night watchman. After being laid off in 1986, he came home to live with his brother Russell on their family ranch in Rail Road Flat.





David loved his family and friends He was independent, sometimes stubborn, and had a big heart, helping other people when it was possible. He loved baking and selling his cookies at the flea market. He enjoyed kids, going to their
baseball games, and baking cookies for them. David had a small garden and enjoyed growing tomatoes, green peppers, and strawberries. He enjoyed going to the Post Office and visiting with people.

Thanksgiving was his favorite holiday. He looked forward to visiting and spending time with family and bringing his blackberry fruit salad to share at the table. He also would share his lemon meringue pie that Loretta Wells would
make for him each year. Your family will be missing you David.

David also volunteered his help for years to the West Point Rod and Gun Club, mowing weeds and helping to clear trails. He loved his life at the ranch, it was tranquil. He fed the deer and the turkeys and called the deer his little babies.

David was his own unique beautiful person and will be forever in our hearts. David was preceded in death by his parents Marjorie and Lloyd Simpson, his sister, Joann Simpson Wells, brother, Russell Simpson, and nephew, Jerry Wells. He is survived by his brother, Dennis Simpson, nephew, Leroy Simpson and family, nephew, Greg Simpson (Kim) and family, nephew, Ken Wells, niece, Barbara Wells Sinfield (Len) and family, and niece, Tiffany Simpson.

Our family would like to thank Maggie Stewart for all of her help with David in the last few months. Also, we would like to thank our neighbors and friends for including David in their lives. It meant the world to him.

Please join us for a Celebration of Life, Saturday, October 30, 2021 at 11:00 A.M.. To be held at the Rail Road Flat Community Bible Church followed by a reception (Potluck lunch) at the Rail Road Flat Community Hall.
