Asheboro

 

 

Thomas "Tommy" Roger Simpson, age 73, of Asheboro passed away on Saturday, October 14 at Duke Regional Hospital in Durham.

Mr. Simpson was born in Alamance County, NC on February 2, 1950 to James Howard and Vera Terrell Simpson. Tommy served his country, for 2 years, in the U.S. Army. Though it was a short period, he served it proudly and was honored to meet and shake the hands of fellow veterans. He was a skilled craftsman and carpenter that took tremendous pride and dedication in all his work. Tommy would rather build something himself or try to repair something that didnt work rather than buy something new. He learned many trades during his 45 plus years with S.E. Trogdon & Sons Construction. He made friends everywhere he went, whether it be on a job site, at a yard sale, a flea market, church, or at various Gospel music gatherings around town. He loved Nascar racing, flea markets, and especially his grandchildren and great grandchildren. He is deeply loved and will be greatly missed by family and  friends alike. Tommy attended Pleasant Hill Baptist Church in Randleman. In addition to his parents, Tommy was preceded in death by his wife of 42 years, JoAnne Simpson and brother, Raleigh Simpson.

He is survived by his daughters, Laurie F. Simpson of Biscoe and Amy L. Simpson of Randleman; grandchildren, Christina Sanders of Welcome, Briana Sanders of Tennessee, Makayla Rees of Randleman, Jacob Smith of Asheboro, and Brandie Holcomb of South Carolina; 10 great grandchildren; brother, Jay Simpson of Asheboro; and sisters, Faye Webster of Asheboro, Belinda Hayes of Seagrove, and Dorothy "Dot" Ray of Graham. He also leaves behind a large number of nieces, nephews and friends that he loved dearly.

The family will receive friends on Saturday, October 21, 2023 from 11:45 am-1:45 pm at Pugh Funeral Home, 437 Sunset Avenue in Asheboro.
