In Loving Memory of William Sims Sr

Donation protected
It is with great sadness and disbelief that we announce the sudden and unexpected passing of William Sims, Sr. He leaves behind his loving wife Renee and daughter Stacey. 

On Wednesday (March 30, 2022), Bill’s untimely death due to overwhelming, physical, emotional and financial stress which was brought on by the death of only son.   His death precedes the passing of son William Sims Jr, who was brutally murdered by three men back in Nov 2016, the family is still going through the court proceedings.

Rene and Stacey are still trying to navigate from the loss of their Son/Brother and are now needing to shift their attention and deal with the loss of William Sims Sr.  They are in great need of financial support which will help cover the memorial service, the unexpected mounting expenses and the loss of income.

Our hearts are all broken right now as we come to terms with this unbelievable loss. The Sims family could use any donations you can contribute to assist the family during this difficult time. Thank you in advance and please keep the Sims family in your thoughts and prayers.

We leave you with this quote that describes our Brother/Father and Friend William Sims Sr.  “I know for certain that we never lose the people we love, even to death.  They continue to participate in every act, thought, and decision we make.  Their love leaves an indelible imprint in our memories. “Leo Buscaglia”.
