Simmons, Edward “Eddie”

May 1, 1961 — August 20, 2021

Edward Wayne "Eddie" Simmons, 60, of the Kansas City Northland, passed away tragically on August 20, 2021.

Ed was born May 1, 1961, in Hutchinson, KS, the son of Roy Simmons and Judy Reid Simmons. Ed was the eldest of three children. His father preceded him in death.

Ed loved being in the country. His favorite childhood memories were at his grandparents' farm. His passions included riding his motorcycle, his country (he served in the Army and Navy), politics, but most importantly his wife of almost 40 years, daughters and grandkids. He accepted Christ as his Savior and was baptized in 1999. Ed didn't know a stranger!

Ed also leaves his mother and step father, Judy and Stan St. John; brother, Glen Simmons (Melonie); sister, Anita Glenn (John); three step brothers; as well as many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, other family members and friends.

In lieu of flowers, memorials are suggested to the Neurofibromatosis Network (www.nfnetwork.org).

Ed, I will live with this hurt in my heart for the rest of my life. Honey I have always loved you. You were my first born and the cutest baby ever. Wish we could have talked before this happened. God has his own timing. I love you so much.
