Potter County Veterans Affairs Director Retires

December 26th, 2018

Potter County Director of Veterans Affairs Bill Simpson has retired from service. Simpson said he intends to spend more time with his family and pursue his many hobbies. He will also continue to serve military veterans through his affiliation with American Legion Post 530 in Shinglehouse. During his service to Potter County, he helped hundreds of veterans as both an advocate and a liaison with agencies that provide benefits and services. He also was engaged with multiple special projects, notably the Potter County Veterans Gravestone Restoration Project and the visit of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Moving Wall.

A resident of Oswayo Borough and a graduate of Oswayo Valley High School, Simpson served with the U.S Navy for more than 23 years. He retired after 30-plus years as a communications technician with Frontier Communications and joined the county in 2016, succeeding Will Worthington. Simpson earned certification as a veterans service officer from the Pa. Dept. of Military and Veterans Affairs. Potter County Office of Veterans Affairs is located in the Gunzburger Building.
