John Joseph Simmons Jr.

June 26,1927- September 17, 2010

At 4:50, Friday afternoon, at home, with his wife Sally by his side, John Joseph Simmons Jr. left this world for a better one. Born in Passaic, New Jersey he was the oldest of three children, and is survived by his sister Nancy Naughton of West Chester, Pennsylvania. Jack joined the Marine Corps, December 1, 1947 and was stationed at Pearl Harbor. He was later discharged with the rank of Staff Sergeant, May 15, 1953. He married on
February 4, 1950 to Sally Jane Clark. Together they brought five children into this world, raised them well, and sent them off to raise families of their own. On
March 20, 2010, Jack celebrated 47 years with AA and was thrilled to attend this years late summer AA picnic. He wanted just one more chance to visit with old friends again. Jack was a Salesman of heating and air conditioning equipment for Worthington, Mueller Climatrol and finally retired under the employment of the The Coleman Companies. After retirement, Jack continued work, first at Ed Porgy Oliver Golf Course, in Wilmington Delaware, then at The Great Pumpkin, in West Chester, Pennsylvania. All of his family, his beloved wife Sally, his
children, Lynn, Edmund, Susan, Janie, and Carol, his Grand Children, Marci, Jacqueline, Brenna, Rick, Maggie, Mary, and Erik, along with his great Grand Children, Mia, and Chloe, will miss him dearly.
He was tired, and we are all glad he has peace now, that he is with his Lord, his Mother and Father, his
brother Frank, his Grand Son Owen, and with all the family and friends who got to the party before him.
