Thomas "Tom" Simpson, of Cherry Hill, NJ, passed away peacefully with family at his side on Wednesday December 2nd at the age of 62.
He is survived by his daughters Amber Staffa and Kelly Bernal; two adoring grandchildren Fiona and Julian Bernal; sisters Monica Stewart, Pamela Link, Nina Simpson, Myra Porter, and Anita Drum; brother Gregory Simpson; and many nieces and nephews. Born in Philadelphia, he was the son of the late George and Florence Rogers Simpson and was raised in Levittown, PA.
He was a devoted husband to his wife, Terri, until her passing in 2003, and was a wonderful, involved father to his two daughters. He was a longtime member of Summit Cycling Club. For many years, he could be found either on his bike or in his garden. He was a sports fan, a reader, and a music lover. He will be missed tremendously by all who knew and loved him. Services will be held privately to accommodate health concerns of the times, but all may visit www.RememberingTPS.com soon to share their memories of Tom and connect with his family.
