Obituary for Stephen Sims Sr.
Stephen Sims made his transition on December 4, 2017 at Hospice of Northwest Ohio, with the Lord and Savior as his witness. He accepted Christ at early age at St. Philip Lutheran, under the leadership of Rev. Pranschke. He attended Jesup W. Scott High School, and as always "Once a Bulldog, always a Bulldog". Stephen worked various jobs in the manufacturing industry. He loved to hunt, fish, shoot pool, made hot tamales, fix on cars, and if you call him to do something, he would come, but he would also fuss.
Stephen is survived by children, Kimberly (Joseph) Anderson of Columbus Ohio, Stephen R. Sims Jr. of Houston, TX, Stephanie J Sims; 16 grandchildren, great-grandchildren: siblings Donald Yates Sr., Brenda Slaughter, Luciller Sims (Minn), Jennifer Slatton (ATL,GA), Marcia Sims, Lamonte Sims, Valerie Sims, Jackie Holifield, Margaretta Sims, Evelyn Sims, and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and other loving relatives and friends.
Forever in our heart: Mother and Father, Ronald Yates, Elbert Sims III, Darryl Sims, Albertus Jean Sims, Ellease V. Sims, Latoya Riley, Madison Riley-Finn, and Syha.
Special thanks to Darlington Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, and Hospice of Northwest Ohio for their excellent care.
