A quiet, reserved man, Rees was baptized in the Christian faith. He was a 1984 graduate of Marysville High School and enjoyed his work, whether delivering pizzas, as a stockman at WalMart or at the Marysville Recycling Center. In his spare time, he loved fishing and boating, attending drag races and especially spending time with his family.

Born September 26, 1965 in Marysville, he was the son of the late Norman and Helen (Rees) Simpson. He was also preceded in death by a brother, Ken.

Surviving are his children, Tina (Ricky) Oldaker, Courtney Simpson and Justin Simpson, all of Marysville; grandchildren, Madison and Mahliky McNew and Boe and Dolton Oldaker; a sister, Susan (Rick) Marshall of Marysville and a brother, Walter (Michelle) Simpson of Laurelville along with several nieces and nephews.
