How Did We Do?

Troy Eugene Simpson, 76, of North Port, FL passed away May 10, 2018. He was born in Marion, Illinois on January 16th, 1942.

Troy graduated in 1958 from Marion High School in Illinois and later received his Master's Degree in Political Science and Government while serving in the US Navy. He also earned a certification in National Security and Strategic Studies at the Naval War College in Newport, RI. He was married to Martha Joy Nobles April 19, 1963. Troy joined the United States Navy in 1960 and served for 26 years as a Naval aviator with two tours as Commanding Officer , retiring in 1986 in Germantown, TN. Troy then enjoyed several different careers as a real estate agent, business owner, house inspector, Home Depot Instructor, and the Adult Literacy Coordinator at Southeastern Illinois College. Troy and his wife Joy moved to North Port, FL in 2011, where he could pursue his love for gardening, especially palms and tropical plants. He was a member of the Master Gardener Club and had a passion for working in the soil with his hands and sharing that joy with those around him, including helping middle school students in North Port with the gardening program.

He also was an avid reader and had an insatiable thirst for knowledge. Troy had a heart of gold and a smile that brought joy to everyone. He was a loving husband, adoring father and Papa, wonderful brother, and a friend to everyone he met. He is survived by his loving wife Joy of 55 years, his three daughters Angela Nimmo, Heather Walton and Dena Brooks (and their respective husbands),and nine grandchildren. He is also survived by his two sisters Doris Hill and Suzanne Barnett.

He was a lovely man. His face was always a shiny light when he spoke with you. Fully engaged in whatever the topic was. We shared a love of gardening and always had mutual updates on plants we had. I will miss our talks. He will be missed deeply by many.❤️

What a wonderful photo of a wonderful and kind man. Troy was a joyous, giving individual, and will be sorely missed by his wife, family, grandchildren and all who were lucky to be his friend.

I am so sorry for your loss. I met Troy during the Master Gardener class on 2014 and we did many plant clinics together at the library. He was a wonderful friend and will be missed.
