Shawn E. Simpson

February 9, 1967 ~ April 30, 2021 (age 54)


Shawn E. Simpson, 54, of McHenry, Kentucky went to his heavenly home on Friday, April 30, 2021 at Owensboro Health Regional Hospital with his wife by his side. He was born February 9, 1967 in Zannesville, Ohio to the late James Simpson and Shannon Jerrells Tichenor. He was the owner of K&S Automotive in McHenry. Shawn (#80) loved racing dirt track for over 33 years and had recently learned that he enjoyed watching the races as much as racing the car. He also loved riding his motorcycle no matter what the weather and his dogs, Cobra and Buddy. Shawn served in the National Guard for 11 years. He was preceded in death by his parents and grandparents.

Shawn leaves behind to treasure many memories, his wife of 31 years, Kathy Simpson of McHenry; three daughters, Brandi (Tim) Wood of Beaver Dam, Magan Lindsey of McHenry and Monica Duncan of McHenry; nine grandchildren, Keyan Frames, Kaylee Thomure, Tanner Wood, Jocee Wood, Ben Wood, Timothy Barnes, Carley Duncan, Cooper Duncan and Lilly Duncan; one sister, Shanae Ramsey of Beaver Dam; six nieces, Lelie Sargent, Jackie Boyken, Beth Gill, Samantha McFarland, Felicia Shephard and Kendra Embry; three nephews, Chris Oslonian, Hunter Gill and Andy Snodgrass; eleven great nieces; ten great nephews and his racing family. He will be missed very much by all.
