Lloyd Willis Simpson, 76, of Wasco, California went to be with the lord August in Bakersfield, California. Lloyd was born on March 3, 1944 to James and Viola Simpson in Wright City, Oklahoma.
Lloyd served in the Army from 1965-1967 where he was stationed at Fort Hood Texas. He married his high school sweetheart Bonnie Peterson and they had two children, Derek and Leslie. Lloyd went to work for Belridge Oil Company where he earned the name “SMOOCHY” by his friends and coworkers because he loved to grab you right when you came through the door and give you a big kiss, embarrassing most. Lloyd retired after 42 years. He enjoyed all sports, but his favorite was to coach and play baseball and softball. It was very rare for him to miss his kids and grandkids practices or games. He loved to rope all the kids and was a favorite uncle to his many nieces and nephews.
Lloyd is survived by his two children: Derek Simpson, Leslie Thompson, her spouse Bobby: 5 Grandchildren: Karlee, Derek Jr, and Dustin Simpson, and Kyrstee and Kaden Thompson; 3 great grandchildren, Lexington Shields, Kaelynn and Kenna Thompson, and many other family and close friends. He was preceded in death by his wife Bonnie, his parents, and his eight siblings.

I am a friend of kyrstee, i met her grandpa at Kenna’s baby shower. My father passed away in 2017 he was my best friend in his last few months when he was sick he wanted to do everything, we would go to the park with my kids and he’d climb the jungle gym and play with the kids as if he was one. At Kenna’s baby shower i walked over to the swing set looking for something and i seen kyrsteees grandpa trying to climb up the steps and we smiled at each other.. i then seen him walking around picking flowers and talking to the kids and he reminded me so much of my dad.. it was like for a few short minutes my dad was here.. i will always have that memory and i can’t thank Lloyd enough for letting me have that. You where a kind gentle soul and you are missed 🖤

Lloyd was my nephew and I was only a couple years older than him. From the time he returned from Korea we as close as brothers. We shared a lot of adventures, Horseback camping in the Los Padre National Forest. Horseback camping and trout fishing on the Pacific Crest trail in southern Oregon. Team penning and ranch sorting in Bakersfield California, Eagle Point and Grants Pass Oregon. He was a hero to my sons Tim, Scott and Sean. My Son Scott is a Pastor and he one said in church that every family has an member that stands out and is loved by everyone men, women and children. HE said in our family that person was LLoyd. Lloyd was in church at the time and was very moved by that statement. I agree with Scott. My stories about Lloyd could fill a book. I have been the butt of his practical jokes many times. My son Sean remarked that everything was more fun if Lloyd was there and I agree. He visited us many times Oregon and we always had a great time. When we visited him and Bonnie at their place we could count on him having saddled his horses and have tri tip on the grill. Age and failing health caused the visits to slow down and eventually stop but memories will be with me forever. My family , sons, daughters-in-laws and grandchildren all loved Lloyd and he will be missed.

I grew up in Wasco on F Street. The Peterson Service Station was on the corner of F st and Poso Drive. I would see Bonnie sometimes there, a pretty blond with a long ponytail. She was in my sister Terri’s class. I met Lloyd at the Church of God where my Aunt Delora, Uncle Euel, and cousin Barbara went to Church. There was a nice group of young people there, Lloyd and his brothers, Bill and Richard, Charles Tatumn, Carolyn and Butch Lightner,
Donna Mc Guire, and Javetta Hancock. We all got together for all kinds of fun times as young people do.
Lloyd was my first boyfriend, I was 14 and he was 15. He was so handsome , he had a great smile. We started our Sophomore year in the Fall, by Spring my parents decided to move to Oregon. We packed up everything left in April to begin a new life in Oregon. Over the years I knew what was going on in Lloyd s life from mutual friends and my Aunt Delora. I was always happy to hear what was happening in his life. When my Uncle Euel died, Lloyd came to the Memorial Service, we were able to catch up and spend some time together. He introduced me to his family, we all had dinner together in Bakersfied. He was very proud of Leslie and Derek and their families. Lloyd always held a special place in my heart, you never forget your first love.
My condolences to his loving family. He loved you all so much.
