Henry "Hank" Littrell Simpson

September 13, 1958 — March 9, 2024

Baton Rouge

Surrounded by loving family and friends, Henry “Hank” Littrell Simpson passed away peacefully at home on March 9 after a brief illness. 

Hank was born in Baton Rouge on September 13, 1958. He attended Episcopal High School where he was active in sports, and later attended University of the South where he earned a degree in economics. Hank worked the majority of his career in the insurance business and spent several years in San Antonio and Houston before moving back to Baton Rouge in 2013. 

Through the years, he enjoyed participating in sports, especially football and baseball and was an avid Houston Astros fan. He also enjoyed listening to live music, playing the guitar, cooking, and collecting guitars. 

Hank was fun loving and young at heart. He had a unique sense of humor and deeply loved being with close friends and family. He was preceded in death by his father Calvin Littrell Simpson, and mother Carolyn Neal Simpson of Houston. He is survived by his daughters Emily Grace Simpson of Ada Oklahoma, and Annabel Carolyn Simpson of Houston; brother Neal Allen Simpson and his wife Mary Ann of Houston; and cousin James Henry Simpson III and his wife Mary Claire of Atlanta. 

He is also survived by Nina Core Miller, whom he referred to as “the love of his life,” and her daughter Camille Miller Cavin and her husband Conner Cavin. Hank and Nina enjoyed many happy years together, attending LSU football games with friends, searching for treasures at estate sales, and grilling steaks in their backyard overlooking a small private lake. Stella, their lab mix, was never far away eager to play and fetch her ball. 

Nina extends special appreciation to friends Pat and Les Rainey, Ninette Perry, and Gay Lazare, who were always there to help during Hank’s illness. Thank you to the wonderful and caring hospice nurses, Sonya and Ingrid, from Audubon Hospice Center. 

A celebration of Hank’s life will be held on March 23, 2024.
