We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Clifton Funeral Home
John Simpson passed away on Saturday, May 21st, 2022. He was a good man with a generous heart who loved uplifting his community with great music. He was a happy man who relished life’s pleasures. John had a clever sense of humor and sparkled when you got his joke. He loved to sing, especially if an audience was enjoying it.
John loved people. He could make connections anywhere with his gift for gab. His sense of timing was a talent.
We had a partnership and a business putting on music events. We call ourselves Singer & Simpson Productions. It all started with John creating a party to celebrate my birthday at a restaurant with friends and had the restaurant owner call to hire me with my band to perform that night.
Singer & Simpson Productions will continue producing music events.
Please join us at The Avalon Theatre on September 14th for An Evening in Rio with the Best of Brazil, John’s concept of a concert of what may turn out to be the best Brazilian music you’ve ever heard honoring Antônio Carlos Jobim, João Gilberto, Stan Getz…and John Simpson, a Renaissance Man who truly believed that life could be splendid.
