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).
