Known affectionately as Coach Rex, he dedicated 16 joyful years coaching football in Millbrook and Prattville, AL, where he instilled not only athletic skills but also love and camaraderie in his teams. Rex peacefully passed away at his residence on April 1, 2024.

Rex leaves behind a legacy of love and warmth, cherished by his wife of 10 years, Nancy Carter Simms; his mother, Billie Charlotte Thompson (Gary) Williams; his stepmother, Carol Simms; his children, Chelsea Ragan Simms (Jaymes) Chambless, Austin Jordan (Mattie Grace) Simms, Jay Emory Simms, and Brody James Simms; his precious grandchildren, Carson Grey Chambless, Elle Riley Chambless, Luke Jordan Simms, and Saylor Jane Simms; and his sister, Tammy Simms (BF) Peyton. Rex was preceded in death by his father, Bobby Rex Simms.

The family extends heartfelt gratitude to the compassionate caregivers at Clearview Cancer Institute, Lincoln Medical Home Health and Hospice, and the countless friends and extended family members who provided unwavering support during Rex’s illness.

Higgins Funeral Home is privileged to serve the family of Bobby Rex Simms, II, as we honor his remarkable life and the joy he brought to all who knew him.
