Michael Simpson, Jr.

January 1, 1971 — August 10, 2020

Michael Simpson Jr. died Monday, August 10, 2020 at his home in Kalamazoo.

He was born January 1, 1971, in Niles to Michael Simpson Sr. and Kathleen Hinkle (Dospoy). He attended Berrien Springs High School and graduated with honors in 1989. He worked locally as a tool and die mold maker and enjoyed his profession.

Mike had a strong compassion for animals and spent a lot of time helping out at the Kalamazoo ASPCA. He enjoyed fishing and watching movies, especially ones starring “The Duke”. Mike had a warm heart, and his sense of humor and laughter will be dearly missed.
