Floyd W. SIMPSON died 2002
Mr. Simpson of Tramway (just South of Sanford), was a checker player and horseshoe pitcher. I have a newspaper article that mentions his name in 1974 playing in the NC State Tournament. He was born on July 2, 1928 and died June 27, 2002, just 5 days shy of his birthday and 74 years old. Funeral arrangements by Bridges Cameron Funeral Home of Sanford.
