Funeral Service Tomorrow For C. Richard Simpson


By a MetNews Staff Writer


A funeral service will be held tomorrow for Los Angeles Superior Court Judge C. Richard Simpson, who died Sunday.

The service is set for 11 a.m. at La Habra United Methodist Church, 631 North Euclid St. in La Habra.

Simpson, who had scheduled his retirement for today, passed away the day after his 80th birthday.

Tributes to the jurist, who spent his entire 16-year career on the bench in Norwalk, continued to come in as colleagues learned of his death.

Simpson “was one of the most dedicated, hard working judicial officers on our bench,” Commissioner Robert Axel wrote in an e-mail message. “He was always up-beat, and supportive of his fellow bench officers, always willing to help with case-load in the building.”
