Robert (Bob) Wilmer Simmons

Robert (Bob) Wilmer Simmons

Robert (Bob) Wilmer Simmons was born October 1, 1917, in Mira, LA. He was one of nine children born to James Monroe Simmons and Bessie McLeish Simmons. He grew up working on a farm with his eight brothers and sisters, which he said taught him a lot about life. Bob met Ruth Van Buren at the Percy Crawford Christian Camp in the Poconos, PA and they were married for 47 years before her death in 1989. He later married Evelyn Yvonne Canady, to whom he was married for 25 years before her death in 2016.

A huge love of Bob’s was riding motorcycles, which he rode almost daily from the age of 18 until he turned 93. (In fact, uncharacteristically, he was stopped for speeding coming home from church at age 92, but after looking at his driver’s license, the police officer with raised eyebrows gave him only a warning).

Emmy was born with a genetic liver disease (PFIC 2). God blessed Emmy with a new liver on April 1st, 2019. Emmy fought the good fight and kept a smile on her sweet face and in her heart through it all. She spoke louder than words without making a sound. Not only did Emmy touch our hearts but our souls as well. She was our little miracle.

Emmy absolutely loved to play with her brother and sister who will have precious memories of their sweet Emmy girl. She loved to play the guitar with her Dada and was his “gurl”. Dancing and cuddling with her momma was one of Emmy’s favorite things. What a blessing Emmy was to so many people.
