Matthew Todd Simmons
Matthew Todd Simmons, 27, of Magnolia, went to be with his Lord and Savior June 27, 2020.
He was born January 29, 1993 in McComb and lived his entire life in the Pike/Amite county area. He attended Parklane Academy and Southwest MS Community College where he was currently enrolled in nursing school.
Todd was known for his passion for LSU football. He was a country music fan and although a huge bear of a man, he was all heart. He was loved by all who knew him. He worked at North Oaks Medical Center in Hammond, Louisiana where he discovered his calling for helping people. This led him to pursue a career in nursing. He would have been a great one.
Todd was preceded in death by grandfathers Sandy Simmons and Bill “B” Garner, maternal great-grandparents Percy and Dolores Easley, Tommy and Etta V. Sturdivant, and aunt Janet Reid.
He is survived by parents Lloyd and Ashley Simmons, grandparents William “Bill” and Connie Easley Richardson, Griffin and Debra Sturdivant, Barbara Garner, and Pam Simmons; aunts and uncles Natalie and Tommy McMahon, Jacquelyn and Terry Cooper, Morty Reid, Bill and Cheryl Richardson, Melanie and Nathan Jagneaux, John and Marisa Richardson, Charlie Richardson, Sr., Bo (Shannon) Sterling, Calvin (Dianna) Sterling; brothers Jacob (Samantha) Baumgartner, Zachary (Megan) Baumgartner; sister Breeanna (Wyatt Ainsworth) Baumgartner; cousins Connor McMahon, Molly McMahon, Haleigh McAlister, Jordyn Cooper, Casey (Theresa) Reid, Marci Reid, Corey Reid, Charlie (Callie) Richardson, Drew Lewis, Lauren Lewis, Avery Lewis, Emily Richardson, Abbey Richardson, Graham Richardson, Jake Richardson, Sydney Richardson, Miles Richardson, Elise Richardson, and Audrey Mae Richardson; niece Ainsleigh and nephews Levi and Elliott Baumgartner; many cousins and close friends, and a furry son, his beloved husky Gage.
