Saturday from Cecil Simmons' wife, Debbra Simmons, and this facebook message from Cecil's son (also named Cecil),
Dear Mr. Campbell (Jim Campbell) as a classmate of my father's I would like to notify you that he passed away about 7:50 this morning. I would be grateful if you can pass this on to other classmates. Thank you.
Cecil passed away Saturday morning in San Antonio, Texas after a brief illness. He will probably be buried in San Antonio, but Debbra didn't have any further details available yet. Debbra is copied (email@example.com), and maybe she will have a chance to share more details with us later.
Our most sincere condolences go out to Cecil's family, which includes Mildred Salter and Polly Spears locally.
