W Bro. David Simpson joined Freemasonry in Scotland in April 1960. His Mother Lodge is Cambuslang Royal Arch, Lodge No 114, where he became a life member in 1970.
Sadly, due to working and travelling extensively all over the UK, he never attained the Chair in his Mother Lodge.
David is married to Nan, his wife of 47 years, and they have two children - Alan and Audra, and a grandson, Alexander.
David worked in the steel industry. In 1976 the family moved to Yorkshire, due to his work commitments. Once settled in this Province, David joined The Lodge of Amity 4148.
In 1983, David quit the steel industry and became involved in the fire surround market, in which he still has involvement.
David has served every "floor office" in his Lodge, culminating in becoming its Worshipful Master in 1988 and again in 1991. He was made an Acting Provincial Officer in 1996.
Over the years David has been involved in visiting other Lodges and supplying furniture to quite a few of them. He has provided an Honours Board for his own Lodge, which will take the names of at least 100 future WMs.
And, thanks to his Scottish heritage, he organises "Burns Suppers" for his own and other Lodges.
