David Simpson Sr. Obituary

David Michael Simpson Sr. known as Dave and David Joe, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, January 24, 2024, at the Hospice Inpatient Care Center of Louisville, Kentucky, at the age of 70. Born Tuesday, September 15, 1953, in Louisville, Dave's life was characterized by his unwavering passion, gentle spirit, and boundless love. 

Dave is survived by his devoted wife, Laresa Simpson; his sons David Michael Simpson Jr.,  (Sara), Timothy Michael Simpson (Jessica), and daughter,  Alanna Hasty (Mike). He was a proud grandfather to Emma Kate, Luke Gabriel, Rhett Michael, Cruz Alexander, Jocelyn Marie, and Greenley Abagail. His legacy will continue through them. Dave was the cherished son of William Joseph Simpson and was preceded in death by his mother, Charlotte Marie  Killeen Simpson and his sister, Michele Karen Kurk (Frank). He is also survived by his siblings, Sheri Simpson, Stephen Simpson (Susan), and Alison Claypoole, as well as one niece, seven nephews, and a host of extended family and friends whom he loved and whom will miss him dearly.

Dave's professional journey was as much about community as it was about career. He owned and operated multiple convenient store locations throughout his life including Carmel Indiana, Bowling Green KY, Horsecave KY and Four Corners in Eastview Kentucky off of Highway 62 at which time he met his beloved Laresa in Eastview. After closing the Eastview store, Dave embarked on a career with Kroger, becoming a company manager at four different area locations where he formed many new friendships and bonds. Known for his warm personality, Dave never met a stranger and could always be counted on for a kind word or helping hand.

Beyond his professional life, Dave was a man of deep faith. He had a passion for studying the Bible and sharing his knowledge with others. His commitment to his faith was evident in his desire to teach Bible study, which he did with joy and dedication. Dave's love for God was the cornerstone of his life, and he lived to embody the principles of his faith in every interaction.
