Alonzo Lee Simpson was born on Monday, February 13, 1967, the youngest of five children born to the union of Robert and Agatha Ashby Simpson. At an early age he accepted Christ as his savior and was baptized into the Walter Clements AME Zion Church. “Lonzo” as he was affectionately called, graduated from Seneca High School in Louisville, Kentucky.  He also attended Eastern Kentucky University in Richmond, Kentucky.  He was an entrepreneur, producer, songwriter,  a U of L Cardinal basketball fan, and a multi-talented gifted individual.  Lonzo loved to cook and looked forward to family gatherings.  On September 3, 2016, Alonzo married his Middle School Sweetheart Shelina Parr, the love of his life. Seeing the need for businesses in the Shelbyville area, together they opened the successful Chicken Champs Restaurant.  They were blessed to work side-by-side until he became ill.  In his goings and comings Lonzo could always be heard talking about the goodness of the Lord.  He freely shared his story with those he came in contact with. On Monday, October 8, 2018, our beloved Alonzo Lee Simpson went to be with the Lord.  He leaves to cherish his memories his loving and devoted wife, Shelina Simpson, son, Alonzo Dixon, stepdaughter, Chasidy Williams, mother, Agatha Stateman, father, Robert Simpson, siblings Robert Simpson, Jr.(Sonya), Gary Simpson (Bobbie), Bonita Slaughter, Karen Simpson, Michael Stateman, Da’Vonte Stateman, granddaughter, Ahli’Aunna Dixon, and a host of aunts, cousins, nieces, nephew, extended family and friends.

    We're sorry to hear about your recent loss. May you find strength from the words of Philippians 4:13 which says: "For all things I have the strength through the one who gives me power." What a loving God who cares about each one of us. He didn't intend for us to grow old and die. He thus has made the SURE promise of a resurrection right here on earth when it is restored to a beautiful paradise (Psalms 37:9-11, 29; Acts 24:15; Isaiah 55;11). Can you see yourself welcoming back to life your loved ones? What a joy it will bring all of us. You can go online to JW.ORG and find out more about this resurrection.
