George William Simpson Jr., 81, of Boothbay Harbor, Maine, passed away Nov. 27, 2022, from a stroke due to Parkinson’s disease.

Bill was born Jan. 27, 1941 in Memphis, Tennessee, to George William Simpson and Helen Douglas Simpson. He graduated from McGill Toolen High School in Mobile, Alabama, and, after four years in the U.S Air Force, the Georgia Institute of Technology with a certificate in architecture. The bulk of Bill’s career was spent in development and construction in Atlanta, Georgia. After officially retiring from construction, Bill worked at Poole Brothers in Boothbay Harbor and detailed cars as a hobby.

Outside of work, Bill loved to travel with his wife, spend time with his dogs and work on cars. His dry sense of humor and laid-back demeanor earned him many friends.

Bill is survived by his wife of 40 years, Peggy Covell, and his sister, Gayle Freeauf of Atlanta.
