Scott Stephen Simpson

WATERVILLE – Scott Stephen Simpson, 55, of Waterville, passed away on Feb. 14, 2021 after a long illness. Born on Feb. 3, 1966 in Gardiner, he was the son of Donald and Nancy Simpson.

Scott graduated from Waterville High School in 1985 and went on to attend Central Beauty School in Augusta. He graduated with his cosmetology license in 1991. His career was not a job, it was his passion. He was a very talented hair stylist and worked in various salons in Maine and New Hampshire.

He grew up in Waterville but moved to Manchester, N.H. in 1997 and made it his home. He loved Manchester and all the people he met there. Eleven years ago, after his diagnosis, he moved back to Maine to be closer to his family.

Scott loved spending time with his dog, Frankie. The two of them were inseparable and he brought so much comfort to his Daddy in his final days. Scott got so much joy from doing hair and making people feel good about themselves. He enjoyed hanging out by the pool, taking care of his flowers, drawing, and spending time with the ones he loved.

Scott was predeceased by his best friend in life, his grandmother, Yvette Doyon; his special uncle, Ronald Doyon and aunt, Gloria Simpson, and several other aunts and uncles.

Scott is survived by his loving parents, Donald and Nancy Simpson of Waterville; his sister, Wendy Aucoin and her husband Gerard along with their son Cameron Scott Aucoin of Waterville. Scott was so proud of the man his nephew had become. He is also survived by his aunts, Pat Doyon of Winslow and Joyce Simpson of Waterville; as well as several cousins. Also survived by friends that turned into sisters, Lori Jacques of Waterville, Casey Perkins of Concord, N.C. Survived as well by many lifelong very special friends.

Scott lit up a room when he walked in. He had a big smile that radiated. He always knew how to make everyone laugh with his crazy sense of humor and his knack for telling stories about his many adventures in life. Scotty to hottie with his signature stomp and hand in the air dance move was always the life of the party.

Due to Covid-19 there will be no services at this time. The family will hold a graveside service at St. Francis Cemetery followed by a celebration of life in the spring that will be announced at a later date.

Arrangements under the direction and care of Dan and Scott’s Cremation and Funeral Service, 445 Waterville Rd., Skowhegan, ME 04976.
