He soon met the love of his life, Kitty Marilyn Felkins at Legand City, an amusement park, that was located in East Phoenix and they were married soon after. They were married in Phoenix, Arizona in a little white chapel. They moved to California after their first two children, Steven and Sherrie were born. While residing in California they had another child, Shonna. They moved back to Arizona where Stacy was born and his family was complete. After all the children were grown, he moved back and forth from Oregon to California and also to Florida to visit family for months at a time but always ended up back in Arizona where his children all lived. He was a man of many trades; produce worker, electricians helper, construction, carpet and tile installer and much more. One of the things he took pride in was his cooking and his way around the kitchen. He made great meals such as Meatloaf, chicken and dumplings and our favorite "Grampa's Chili". Another thing he took pride in was keeping a clean and tidy house which he learned while in the Military. In his free time his hobbies included fishing, camping, family time and baseball. He loved the Arizona Diamondbacks and never missed watching the game, even when he grew ill, he always watched the games. Robert is survived by his brother, "Ronnie Simpson" who resides in South Dakota. His sister, "Barbara Eide" who resides in California. His 3 children; Steve Simpson, Sherrie Griffith and Stacy Cooper, many grandchildren and great grandchildren. He has left this world to join the rest of his family in paradise.
