Next time you make a lasagna or plant in a garden, have a smile and think of William “Bill” Francis Simpson.  He was a dearly loved, complex man of many talents and interests. Bill was born in New Rochelle, NY on October 25, 1944 and passed away September 9, 2013 in West Haven, CT. He was 68 years old. While living “up the West” in New Rochelle, Bill was a protective big brother and excelled at gymnastics while at New Rochelle High School where he graduated in 1963.  Upon graduation, he enlisted in the United States Marine Corps, where he proudly served his country.   His time in the Marine Corps was a lifelong source of great pride - “Once a Marine, always a Marine” was oft repeated.  He attended Westchester Community College and a master’s program at City College of New York. Bill married Jeane Chianelli on January 2, 1965 and they had many adventures, living as newlyweds in a trailer the size of a sardine can in North Carolina and soon after moving to Southern California.  Eventually, they settled back in New Rochelle, NY, where they raised their daughter, Stephanie. As a family, they enjoyed exploring New York City together, particularly the Bronx Zoo, the Botanical Gardens, The Museum of Natural History and street fairs.  Bill was a caring, hands-on father who took his daughter to countless Yankee games and taught her how to drive stick shift in his van at Glen Island. He kept a bat at the front door to let any boys who came over know who they had to answer to if they broke his daughter’s heart. He only had to use it once. Bill and Jeane moved to Milford, CT in 1987. Bill was a vocational teacher and later owned his own carpentry business, Simpson Construction.   He was a talented craftsman, life-long coin collector and voracious reader of archaeology and science. Bill also spent years studying and practicing Reiki.  He was very proud of his Italian heritage and enjoyed reunions with his extensive family. Throughout his life, Bill loved to watch a boxing match as much as he loved to read about Michelangelo. Bill’s love for his family grew exponentially upon the birth of his granddaughters, Sophie and Katie. Together they shared many hours drawing, walking and cooking together, and whenever he visited them in Portsmouth, NH, “Poppy” always left a treat of gum and cookies under their pillow for them to find.   His years as a retired man were filled with family, good food and plenty of bets with his son-in-law Cliff over the Red Sox and Yankees.  The stakes were high, with ice cream with the granddaughters riding on the bet (along with bragging rights).  Bill was a great sport with a passion for his family, for knowledge and artistic beauty. Bill was preceded in death by his big brother Joseph Clifford Simpson. He is survived by his wife Jeane Simpson of Milford, CT, daughter Stephanie Simpson Lazenby, son-in-law Clifton Lazenby and granddaughters Sophie and Katherine Lazenby of Portsmouth, NH; and by his siblings and their families:  Frank and Kathleen Simpson of New Rochelle, NY, Lillian and Dennis Howley of Fairfax, VA, Deborah Arleth of Boca Raton, FL, Anthony and Pamela Giarla of Seymour, CT, Michael and Carol Giarla of Cleveland, TN and Thaddeus and Antonietta Giarla of Boca Raton, FL. He will be deeply missed by his nieces and nephews all of whom brought him great joy and pride in their academic and personal pursuits. The loss of William Simpson – Husband, Dad, Poppy, big brother -- is unfathomable, but his compassion and spirit will live and thrive in all who knew him. There will be Mass in Bill’s honor at 9:30am Saturday, September 14, at The Holy Name of Jesus Church, 75 Lispenard Ave, New Rochelle, NY. Funeral arrangements were handled by Lloyd Maxcy (http://www.lloydmaxcy.com/ ). In lieu of flowers, his family would prefer donations be given to causes that touched Bill’s life such as helping Veterans (http://www.woundedwarriorproject.org/) or conquering hearing impairment (http://www.deafchildren.org/).

"My wife was an incredible woman, mother and partner. She attended college and law school at night while working full time during the day. She gave birth to four beautiful girls she called her little angels. Her greatest joy in life was being a full time and involved mother. In 2003 when the hard times befell the family she selflessly put her passion for her daughters on hold and returned to work. Unfortunately times never did return to normal and she continued to work forgoing the valuable mother daughter events that many of us take for granted. She continued to work these final years through five cancer operations and rounds of chemo and radiation too numerous to count. She worked up until the day before she had to be rushed to the hospital for the final time. She fought long, constantly and hard for so long enduring unspeakable pain in the process. To our children, she was a wonderful, incredible example of what a person should be. She died comfortably and quietly surrounded by many family members with her girls holding her hands on her way to heaven. "
