Birth: Feb. 20, 1900
Oregon, USA
Death: Apr. 25, 1964
Oregon, USA

John was the second of four children of Charles E. Simpson and Dora Belle Ray. He born in Oregon and lived most of his life there. In 1930 he was living in rural Lane County with his wife Gladys and a young daughter and worked as a log truck driver. In 1942 he enlisted in the Army. He became a corporal.

It is not known where John died. The Oregon Death Index gives OS (out of state?) in place of a death certificate number, and no death certificate could found in the Oregon State Archives.
