Shawn Simpson
Chapel Oaks Funeral Home in Hiawatha
Hiawatha , KS

Shawn Francis Simpson, 40, of Hiawatha, passed away September 11, 2018, due to a tragic motorcycle accident north of Hiawatha.  

Shawn was born at Hiawatha February 7, 1978, one of four children born to Alan Wayne and Patricia Jane Shelton Simpson.  He grew up in the Highland-Hiawatha communities where he was homeschooled and received his high school diploma from St. James Christian Academy.  He worked at Koch and Company for eight years prior to going to work for the City of Hiawatha water department in February 2018.

He was a loving father, husband, brother, son and uncle.  His kids were his world!  Shawn knew no stranger and he made everyone feel special.  He loved spending time with his kids and wife.  To say that he loved riding his motorcycle was an understatement!!  He loved listening to music, helping  people, making people laugh and tinkering with his classic cars.  Shawn would give the last of anything he had to benefit someone else.  He had an infectious smile and laugh!!  He had an open mind/open heart....never judged anyone.

He attended the First Baptist Church in Hiawatha for several years with his family.

He was married to Christina Renea Sales, September 15, 2012 in St. Joseph, MO.  She survives.  He also leaves behind his five children:  Brennon Barnes, Alan Simpson, Nicole Mackey, Blake Simpson, Jace Simpson, all of the home; his mother Patricia Simpson of Highland; two brothers Shannon Simpson of Highland, Shane Simpson of Troy; a sister Alisa McClellan of St. Joseph, MO; several nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his father Alan Wayne Simpson; and all of his grandparents.        

A Celebration of Shawn’s life is planned for 2:30 p.m. Sunday, September 16, at the First Baptist Church in Hiawatha, with Pastor Blake Wyatt officiating.  Interment will follow at the Iola Cemetery, south of Sparks. Friends may call at the Chapel Oaks Funeral Home, in Hiawatha, after 12 noon Saturday, September 15. The family will meet with friends from 6 until 8 Saturday evening at the funeral home.
