He is survived by his wife, Mrs. Adelpha (Himes) Simpkins, whom he married 48 years ago, October 25, and by one sister, Mrs. E.J. Himes. The funeral was held at the Methodist church Monday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock, the Rev. John Wriston, officiating. The bearers were Ralph S. Whitcomb and Ray Bessey of St. Albans, George Britch of Highgate, and Ernest Sheldon of this place, all nephews of Mr. and Mrs. Simpkins. A mixed quartet composed of Mr. A.A. Aseltine, Mrs. H.N.
