Simpson, Daniel Richard
September 10, 1955 – July 11, 2020
Seelby Holsteins

Peacefully at home with his family by his side, Dan Simpson of Seeley’s Bay, on Saturday, July 11, 2020, after a two-year battle with cancer.
Dear son of Joyce Simpson of Seeley’s Bay and predeceased by his father Richard (Dick) Simpson in 2019.
Beloved husband of Cindy Cross, dear father of Tara (Ann Marie) of Kingston and Devin (Sarah) of Seeley’s Bay. He will be fondly remembered by his granddaughters Frankie, Kenzie and Lexi. Dan was predeceased by his grandson Parker in 2017.
Dear brother of Wendy Bolton (Brent) of Seeley’s Bay and Cindy Laprade (Marc) of Wooler. Remembered by his niece Sheena Bolton (Adam) of Ottawa and nephews Dustin Langlois (Laurie) of Kinburn and Spencer Langlois (Melissa) of Perth.
Dan spent his life as a dairy farmer operating Seelby Holsteins, first with his father Dick and then with his son Devin. Dan was proud that Seelby Holsteins earned three Master Breeder shields, the highest honour awarded by Holstein Canada. He showed purebred cattle for many years, sold embryos worldwide and was involved with the Leeds County Holstein Club, as well as being a 4H leader for several years. This year was the first in over 50 years that he was unable to be involved with spring planting.
Dan enjoyed deer and duck hunting, nature and wildlife, as well as travelling with Cindy. Some of his favourite trips were to Egypt, the Galapagos Islands, Maui, Iceland, and to Tanzania, where he climbed Mount Kilimanjaro in his 50s.
The family would like to express their gratitude to the Cancer Centre of Southeastern Ontario, as well as to Tanya and Jen with the Southeast LHIN, whose care allowed Dan to remain at home.
There will be a private graveside service at the Olivet Cemetery. Friends and family are invited for a drive by reception on Wednesday, July 15 from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. at Seelby Holsteins, 196 Main Street, Seeley’s Bay.
In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations toward childhood cancer research. Please contact the Canadian Cancer Society at 1-800-268-8874.
