To the Sims family, I am sorry to hear of your dad's passing. I just found out when I went visiting teaching to your Aunt Marion Shappart. Just so happens you kids are related to me. I am your mother's cousin. My father is Ronald Williams. He is a brother to Hannah Davis. I remember you guys when we were young. It has been years and we have lost all contact with your family. My mother is still alive. She is 95. We would love to keep in contact with you. Please email me so we can get your contact information. Again we are sorry for your loss. Judy Williams Harris

Oh how I will miss this man; so rough, brash and STUBBORN on the outside while tender and loving on the inside. I was always amazed at his work ethic and his loyalty both on the job and at home. I will miss spectating all sorts of sporting events with him, we enjoyed many a Wildcat game, many a grandson game *his favorite thing in the world* many a Jazz game and I just had to roll my eyes as he watched Bull Riding and Friday Funnies as he liked to call the WWF wrestling matches. I could not have asked for a more devoted Gpa to my boys, from babes in arms to grown men he enjoyed every minute he could. I spent many a day with side-splitting pain from laughter as Dad, Dallin and Kyle would torment each other to no end. His laughter and hugs... those I will miss the most. Love you Dad <3
