Andy Simmons (John Andrew Nelson Simmons), age 42, of Grady, Arkansas passed away on May 12, 2021.

He was born May 10, 1979 in Pine Bluff, Arkansas to John C. Simmons and Nan Nelson Simmons. He graduated from Pine Bluff High School and attended First United Methodist Church during the early years of his life and learned to know and find peace with his creator in the many outdoor activities that he pursued.

His most treasured outdoor activity was waterfowl hunting and wetlands habitat preservation. Andy’s early career included working in the agricultural and farm service industries. He worked on both his grandfather’s farms and in the family oil business. An accomplished golfer, he was a club champion in his early years.

Andy always took a genuine interest in helping and learning from others. His friends knew that if they were in trouble, that he would always be there to back them up and stand up for what was right. Andy will be remembered for his kindness and soft-spoken nature.

Andy was preceded by his mother, Nan Nelson Simmons; and his grandparents Knox A. Nelson, Nancy Cearley Nelson, Calvin Richardson Simmons, M.D., and Jeanne Tillou Simmons.

Andy is survived by his father, John C. Simmons (Della) of Pine Bluff; his sister Ashley Simmons Perry (Robert); his nephew Knox; and nieces Ada Grace, Lucy, and August Anne Perry, all of Oxford, MS.

Services will be held Sunday, May 16 at 2:30 p.m. at Fuller Hale-South Funeral Chapel in Pine Bluff. Visitation will follow the service.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made in Andy’s name to the Arkansas Waterfowl Association, 8088 Hwy 31, Lonoke, AR 72086.
