Charles Lewis “C.L.” Simmons, age 90, of 104 Ross Lane, Clifton Forge, Virginia departed this life on Wednesday, January 27, 2021 at his home.
Born on December 16, 1930 in Iron Gate, Virginia, Charles was a son of the late Abraham and Gertrude Simmons. He graduated from Eagle Rock High School, served in the United States Army, and retired from the Clifton Forge-Waynesboro Telephone Company after 44 years of service. He was a husband, father, and grandfather who was dearly loved by his family. Throughout his life, he enjoyed being a farmer, a carpenter, and playing his guitar. Some of his best memories were of going horseback riding and hunting with his dear friends in the mountains. He was a member of The First Assembly of God Church in Clifton Forge for many years. He always enjoyed helping those in need.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by two sons, Edward Simmons and Charles A. “Ikey” Simmons; seven sisters, Hazel Piscunare, Dorothy Myers, Patricia Griner, Mary Capalby, Frances Bober, Bernice Deisher, and Phyllis Huffman; and two brothers, Homer Simmons and Abraham Jonathan “A.J.” Simmons.
He is survived by his loving wife of 67 years, Mary Miller Simmons of Clifton Forge; one son, Pat “Chicken Wing” Simmons of Clifton Forge; two grandchildren, Rachel Simmons and Aaron Simmons of Millboro; two brothers, Donald Simmons and wife Robin of Eagle Rock and Bobby D. Simmons and wife Linda of Covington; one sister, Alice Wilkinson of Lynchburg; two special nephews, Mike Simmons and Aaron Simmons, both of Clifton Forge; an adopted granddaughter, Amy Young of Eagle Rock; and many beloved nieces and nephews.
In keeping with his wishes, his body has been cremated. Due to the pandemic, a virtual memorial service will be held on Sunday, January 31, 2021 at 4:00 PM from the First Assembly of God Church, Clifton Forge, with Pastor Teddy Joe Bias officiating. To find and join the service live, please go to Once you go to the church page, click the “Like” option and the video can be saved or downloaded for your keeping. An outdoor celebration of his life will be held at a later date.

Mrs. Simmons and family, my heart aches for you in the loss of Mr. Simmons. It was always such a pleasure to see the two of you at Maw & Paw's restaurant in Eagle Rock. You are two of my favorite people. Your concern for others stood out to me, and you were always so pleasant. I have missed you much, and may God truly Bless and Comfort you in this time of sorrow. I love you both!

Love, Prayers and Blessings,
Lois Elliott

C.L. aka "Uncle Baldy" was the dearest man I have ever known. I loved his smiles, his laughter and his love and caring spirit for all he came in contact with! He loved his family fiercely and would help anyone in need....I am missing you dear uncle, but I am thankful you are healed and in the arms of Jesus now.

Aunt Mary.....know you are loved as well and that Mark, the children and I send prayers for peace and comfort during this difficult time. We love you more than words can ever say.
