Had a friend forward me an email asking for Prayers for Dave Simmons earlier this afternoon and now have been notified that he has passed. I'm sure that someone from the Tulsa Eagles will post something in the future but just wanted to ask that everyone keep the Simmons family in your thoughts/prayers. I know they were asking that NO ONE other than family go to the hospital so I would expect that they are still requesting no visitors/calls at their home. Do know that his daughters came in.
Softball has lost a very experienced Man who dedicated much time and many hours to the game and to the girls. RIP Dave-sure your Legacy will live on! TULSA EAGLES and your families, you all are in our prayers! Candy __________________ Candy

What a loss to the softball community. Dave was not only a wonderful coach but a great man and father. I played for Dave in the mid 80,s and he taught me so much not only about softball but about success on and off the field. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

I am so so sad! I loved Dave! He was like a father to me on the field. I played for him 88-90. He was definitely a leader! My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

Truly heartbreaking. Dave was such an influence in my life when I played for him, so much so that I sent my daughter to take lessons from him. Some of my fondest memories revolve around being on the softball fields with my Eagle family. My thoughts and prayers go out to the Simmons family.
