Thomas E.'s Story
Thomas E. Simmons (4/8/63-11/6/17), died peacefully in his sleep. He was the son of the late Tommie E. Simmons and surviving mother Marie Annette Dumont Simmons of Newburyport; brother to Will Simmons, with whom he built Simmons Plumbing and Heating into a successful Northshore business over the course of 31 years, and Ron Simmons, with whom he shared many laughs fixing dilapidated boats, trucks, and miscellaneous lemons Ronnie decided to purchase. He leaves behind his loving wife, Lisa Simmons, their children, Elizabeth and Jaclyn, his step-children, Cameron and Kelsey, two sisters-in law and many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, and adoring friends. Thomas loved his wife and children with all his heart, mind, and soul. He was dedicated to their success through love and hard work. He always wanted to make sure they were provided for. He graduated from Whittier Vocational School, Haverhil, in 1982, where he would be a Varsity Basketball All-star and average over 16 points per game. After high school, Thomas attended Denver Automotive and Diesel College, where he graduated as a certified mechanic. He was an active member and instructor at Georgetown Fish and Game. He was an excellent marksman and always loved helping others learn the craft. Thomas was an avid fan of the Oakland Raiders. He was cheering for the Raiders right up until his last night, and they won. Go Raiders, forever. He was a Christian and attended the New Life Church with his family. Thomas loved God, his family, and his country. Though he will be greatly missed, his family knows he is now in the comfort of Jesus’ arms, safely in heaven, where one day, they will all be reunited.
