On May 28, 2017, Wayne Adam Simmons went to meet Jesus in Person. He was 36 years old, born in Napa Valley, CA. Wayne lived most of his life in the Beach City area. Those who knew him are grieving the loss of such an incredible person, but for Wayne it is a joyous reunion with his brother Nathan, grandpa, uncle, and others he has missed. Wayne was a pleasant, gentle, and caring soul who enjoyed deep conversations, watching movies, and he was an avid reader. Wayne was a great outdoorsman, and excellent gardener with a green thumb. Wayne attended Community Full Gospel Church in Navarre over the years, and in 2015 was baptized at Bethel Church in Canton. Wayne will be missed by all those who knew him. Wayne is survived by his mother Debra Anderson of Midvale, his father Neil Simmons of Beach City, his sister Neildra (Henry) Cox of North Canton, his grandmother Betty Simmons of Beach City and various aunts, uncles, and cousins.
