    • Harold George Simmons, Sr., age 80 of Little Rock, passed away January 5, 2011. He was born November 13, 1931 in Barling, Arkansas, the son of George and Germaine Hassler Simmons. He was preceded in death by his parents and loving wife of 55 years, Shirley Tenney Simmons.

      He is survived by two sons, Harold Simmons, Jr. and wife Wendi, Larry Simmons and wife Lori; daughter Donna Little and husband Kenneth; and two sisters, JoAn Corn and husband Harold, and Linda Dickerson and husband Bill. He leaves behind 7 grandchildren, Sandra Dumond, Jason Simmons, John Simmons, James Little, Alicia Kolen, Melody Campbell and Jeb Blanz, 9 great-grandchildren and a host of friends and family.

He was a member of Truservice Community Federal Credit Union for 52 years, having served 19 years on the Board of Directors and 8 years as Chairman of the Board.

      He was a devoted member of Our Lady of Good Counsel Catholic church for 66 years having served many years as an usher, a member of the Pastoral Council and was deeply respected for his support of the church community.
