In Loving Memory

Simpson, Donald B. “Dutch”

Donald B. “Dutch” Simpson passed away on Thanksgiving morning, Thursday, November 24, 2022.  He was 85 years old.  Don is survived by his wife of 59 years, Martha (nee Fessel), his son Matthew, his daughter Christa, and his beloved and faithful companion “Little Buddy.”  Don was born on May 17, 1937 in Homestead, PA and was the only child of Rosemary and Donald Simpson.  He graduated from Geneva College in 1961 and then entered the Army where he was stationed at Fort Knox, KY for two years.

Don developed a love for golf at an early age and began caddying at a local country club.  His family had no car at the time so he walked over a mile each way to caddy.  He took pride in the fact that he caddied for LPGA professional Micky Wright.  Through the years he enjoyed many golfing accomplishments, winning the Caddy Championship in 1955 along with numerous trophies for tournaments in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Massachusetts, and Missouri; he also won trophies for five holes in one.  In his spare time, he enjoyed giving golf lessons at Tower Tee Driving Range, Sherwood Country Club, and for Meramec Community College at The First Tee Driving Range.

Don worked as an insurance publication and advertising salesman for The National Underwriter Company for 29 years, covering the New England states from 1967-1972.  He was then transferred to St. Louis before retiring in 1991.  Don still wanted to be active and productive so he began working as the caddy master at Westwood Country Club and Westborough Country Club.  Later he also worked at Holy Infant Parish, Dierberg’s, and The First Tee Driving Range.  Throughout the years, Don made countless friends; he never met a stranger!

We are confident that our hard-working, loving, and devoted husband and father is now enjoying his Heavenly reward.  With saddened hearts, we and his many friends certainly will miss him but have faith that we will be reunited someday according to God’s will.

  1. Loved “Dutch”. He was my golf scramble partner for many years. Even though he had a few years on me the man could play.

    Rest in peace my friend. You will be missed.

  2. Sorry to hear of your passing Dutch, I am grateful for the years we had together at the golf range. Enjoyed your stories and stock tips! Rest in peace

  3. Don had the gift of gab. He loved sports, golf and White Castle coffee club. He and my sister had 59 years together. While I am glad he is not suffering anymore, I know it will be hard on family.
