Jack Roberts Simpson passed away May 7, 2022, in his home in West Jordan, Utah. Born April 14, 1932, to Christopher Vernon and Beulah Roberts Simpson in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Four year Navy veteran of the Korean War.  He found his special companion, Gwen Davies, at church in Los Altos, California. Eternal marriage October 21, 1954 in the Salt Lake Temple.

Jack raised his family and was tutored and taught by the wonderful saints of Granger, Utah; where he met his good friends and almost brothers, Cal Anderson and Bruce Brooks whom he laughed with, socialized with, worshiped with and cried with. He still treasured the acquaintances and friends from the Granger area. He also had great friends in the Spring Hollow community where he has lived for over 20 years.

Blessed to serve the Lord in many callings: Sunday School, MIA, Clerk, Bishop, High Council, with his beloved Gwen as missionaries in the Dominican Republic Temple and many years as an ordinance worker in the Jordan River Temple.
