Samuel Tiding Simpson, Jr.
1928 - 1952
Submitter: Nina Young-Bennett, niece

My late uncle, Samuel Tiding SIMPSON, Jr. was named for his father. Full of charisma and personality, he was his parents' and siblings' pride and joy, and was the light of many Columbus, Ohio girls' eyes. Uncle Sammy was quite the ladies' man. Although he never formally married, rumors have persisted that there is a child out there that he fathered, before going off to war. If that is true, we would all love to meet and welcome them into our family. As an Army recruit, Uncle Sammy served his country during a pivotal time in history-- the Korean War--and lost his life in that service. Born in Columbus, Ohio on 8/9/1928, and killed by a mortar shell on 10/18/1952, Samuel Tiding SIMPSON, Jr. was just 24 years old at the time of his death. He is buried in the Soldier's Section of Greenlawn Cemetery in Columbus, Ohio, where many of our family members have gone on to join him. Though his earthly life ended, his life and memories are cherished by his family.
