Obituary for William H. Simpson

William H. Simpson, age 90 of Oak Park, beloved husband of the late Bonnie nee Kirk; loving father of Cindy (Christopher Frauens) and Jennifer (Toby) Conway; devoted grandfather of Nathan and Emily Conway, fond friend of many. Bill was a graduate of Newark College of Engineering in 1946 with a Bachelors of Science in Mechanical Engineering. He spent a majority of his career (59+ years) working in Chicago land as a consultant and sales engineer in the HVAC industry. Prior to meeting and marrying Bonnie he was a co-leader of Oak Park Boy Scout Troop 9 for eleven years. He used his experience in Boy Scouts to share a love of the outdoors with his daughters. An avid Chicago Bears fan he could always be found on game day coaching the team from the couch and occasionally from the stands. He spent the last seven years of his life living with his daughters and their families. During that time he enjoyed weekend excursions and going on vacations. His family, especially his grandchildren, was the most important thing in his life. Visitation Wednesday 3 to 8 p.m. at Drechsler, Brown & Williams Funeral Home, 203 S.
