Peacefully, Monday, April 25, 2011. Herbert Marshall Simpson age 70. Beloved husband of Ann Simpson. Loving father of Michael (Susan), Ronald, and Richard (Sarah Matthews). Proud grandpa of Nicholas, Tyler, Kristine, Cory, Callum, and Ian. Dear brother of Irene Sutton (Doug). Brother-in-law of Wally Brogan (Terri). Special uncle of Steven, Bradley (Deborah), Donald, and Allan. In 1975 Herb became the CEO of the Traffic Injury Research Foundation of Canada (TIRF). In those 35 years, he brought the small foundation’s fine reputation to the global stage. In 2003, Herb was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma. The family wishes to extend their heartfelt thanks to all their friends, neighbours and colleagues. Your thoughtfulness will always be remembered. Herb will be cremated and a private service for family will be held. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Traffic Injury Research Foundation (TIRF) or to the Ottawa Hospital Foundation in support of Dr. Harry Atkins research.
