1969 – 2014

LEWISTON — William A. “Bill” Simmons, 44, of Andover, died on Thursday, March 6, at Central Maine Medical Center.

Bill was born in Hartford, Conn., on June 16, 1969, the son of Barbara (Grant) Simmons and the late William H. Simmons, and attended Maine schools. For many years, he worked for Steve Swasey Inc., operating an excavator. He also did excavation for Esau Cooper Inc.,  and worked many winters for Jacques Chartier Logging. He was currently employed by Nicols Brothers Inc., doing what he loved to do: logging and excavation.

Bill enjoyed hunting, fishing, horseshoes and gatherings. The love of his life was his son, William “Buddy” Simmons, and we can’t forget his dog, Ruger, and his cat, Lucky.

Survivors include his son, Buddy, of Seward, Alaska; a brother, Greg and his companion, Kelly Martin, of Andover; his mother, Barbara, of Andover; and his daughter, Keri Standeven, of Bethel.

Bill touched many lives and will be missed by all. The family would like to send a special thank-you to the staff at Central Maine Medical Center ICU Unit, with special thanks to Brenda, Tanya and Danielle.
