Robert L. Simpson, age 64, of Hot Springs died Monday May 23 2016 in Hot Springs Arkansas.
Everyone who knew Robert knew that The Pocket Theatre was very important to
him. He had been involved in this organization for over 20 years. The people
who volunteer here, the people who support the theatre in any way, the people
who attend the shows...were all like family to him.
And...the actors...we looked to him for guidance, for support, for reassuance...and,
yes, sometimes to even apply a little duct tape to a costume from
And he was one of the most familiar faces at the theatre. Whether he was in
the front office or wearing the headset during a production, Robert was always
at center stage at The Pocket.
Quite a few people have recently made memorials to the theatre honoring Robert
Simpson and many others have asked about doing so.

Yes, we are missing Robert, but we know he has a front row seat now and we
all have our very special memories of the twinkle in his eye and...the grin...there
was always that grin!
