Kevin Allen Simpson, aged 52, lost his battle with cancer on September 8, 2022.


Kevin was born in Longmont, Colorado on March 8, 1970, to Keith and Verta Simpson. As the youngest of four siblings, he had two older brothers, Michael Simpson and Steve Simpson, and an older sister, Deborah Stewart. They made their home on South Sunset Street in Longmont, adjacent to a rail spur that captured Kevin’s attention from an early age.


After attending schools in Longmont, Kevin graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 1996 with a bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering. He received his professional engineering license in 2002 and worked in the engineering field for 26 years. Kevin culminated his career as a Plans Review Engineer for the City and County of Denver Community Planning Department.


Ever an avid train lover, Kevin enjoyed visiting rail stations, tunnels, and train yards, as well as working on his own HO and N scale model train layouts in the basement of his house. His other enjoyments were road tripping with his family, astronomy, and geography. Kevin loved comparing his rail maps and train call signs to geographical features in the field.


Kevin married Sonja Curtiss in 2008, at the Izaak Walton Inn in Glacier National Park, Montana. Along with her son, John “JJ” Aulsebrook, they have two children, Lily Simpson and Tyler Simpson.


Kevin is survived by his wife and children, mother Verta Simpson, siblings Michael (Lucy) Simpson, Deborah (David) Stewart, Steve Simpson, as well as numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins. He was preceded in death by his father, Keith Simpson.
