OBITUARY

Frankie Paul Simper

8 July, 19672 September, 2021

Frankie Paul (Paulie) Simper, of Moulton, Texas passed away due to complications from Covid on Thursday, September 2, 2021. Paulie was born July 8, 1967 in Yoakum, Texas to Doris Ann (Barta) Simper and Frank Edward Simper. He was the second-oldest of their four children, having two sisters, Mary Ann and Rebecca, and one brother, Michael. Mary Ann, his only elder sibling, passed away as an infant before Paulie was born. He is also preceded in death by his father, Frankie, and his nephew, Alex Simper.

Frankie Paul lived predominantly in Moulton, Texas, and was very proud to do so. He strongly favored rural life and all of its many benefits. But mostly, he enjoyed knowing and befriending his neighbors. Paulie also preferred the labors of rural life. He was a jack-of-all-trades and worked as a butcher, machinist, farmhand, and was even known to occasionally mow a yard or two. Like many of his family and friends, Frankie Paul took tremendous pride in a day well-worked.

He also took tremendous joy in time well-played. His favorite recreation was to take a cruise and go scuba diving. Most recently, he took his mother on a cruise and they enjoyed making many fond memories together. Paulie was also an avid fisherman and boater. When time didn't allow for aquatic activities, Paulie enjoyed practicing with his collection of firearms, playing a round of dominos, or just telling fish stories.

Somewhere between work and play for Paulie was his cooking. His ability to smoke or sear various meats to perfection brought people together on many occasions.

There wasn't any sacrifice Frankie Paul wouldn't make for his family, friend, or neighbor. He was an especially doting son and uncle. Every one of his nephews (Aidan, Gavin, Nolan, Elijah, Gabriel, Jonah, Levi, and Asher) and niece (Becca) would swear they were Frankie Paul's favorite. His servant's heart was especially on display in his activities with Faith Family Church in Gonzales, Texas. After struggling with his faith for most of his adult life, Frankie Paul was blessed and openly grateful to find a Christian community that helped him restore his relationship with the Lord. He worked in many ministries through the church, but he was most fond of his activities with the youth.

The family would like to thank you for all your love, support, and prayers during this difficult time. Your kind words and actions are a true testament to the life Frankie Paul worked so hard to lead.

If there were ever a man deserving of the title of Mr Moulton, it would be Paulie. Always a gentleman, forever a friend. Heaven truly gained an Angel. He and my dad will be great friends, no doubt. Auntie Doris, hugs and prayers.

Let's see he was one of the very few who called me Sheryl Rae and with a big smile .. we were very close in high school many days and late nights at his parents house many any fun times in the creek, running the gravel roads really don't see how we didn't get hurt or caught back then,fritz Miller store and other lots and lots of great memories, talks tears and laughs
I hadn't been in touch with him in years until just this spring when he and his crew started doing the yard in Moulton at my dad's place
I wish I would've heard sooner that he had been sick so maybe I could've got to speak to him
Frankie Paul u continue to smile and bless everybody up there ...miss you

Greetings Simper Family,
I extend my deepest sympathy to all of you over the loss of your Beloved Frankie Paul, Son, Brother, Brother in Law and Uncle. I know he will be missed in so many ways !!
I had the pleasure of working with Frankie Paul in the meat market of Patek's many, many years ago. And what a HOOT he was to work with !! He was always smiling and always put the customer first. He knew what his regular customers wanted before they even told him. He knew what kind of steak they wanted, how thick they wanted it cut and how many. And the sausage he could make!! People came from all over to fill their ice chests full of the scrumptious rings of all the different varieties, beef, pork and beef, beef, pork, jalapenos and cheese (pork or beef) and others.
He left us way too early but I finally came to the conclusion that God wanted to taste some REAL sausage and that's why he brought Frankie Paul home so early. I would say rest in peace Frankie Paul but now that God and the angels and the saints have tasted real sausage he will have no peace as all he will be doing is making that REAL sausage. Hope God has instructed some of the angles and saints to give him a hand.
He may be gone from this earth but he will never be forgotten !

Rest In Peace my friend ~ I will miss you on the streets of Moulton, in your back yard or my roadway because we waved and talked even when we took the time to share our friendship and respect!!!
GOD BLESS 🙏

I first want to offer my sympathy to Paulie’s family. My dad and Paulie were best friends and are practically brothers, and have know each other for over 30 years. He was a very close family friend, and I often called him Uncle Paulie. I will forever miss his bright smile and easy going way of life. Some of my favorite memories are of when he would invite us to come and swim in his pool and pick vegetables in his beautiful garden. He always could think of the bright sides of things and was a true man of God. I love you, Uncle Paulie, and you will be dearly missed.
