On July 27th, Simonsen Industries and the community of Quimby lost Dr. Doyle Simonsen. Doyle was 96 years old at the time of his death and had lived a wonderful life. Doyle was a pioneer in the fertilizer industry and by the time of his retirement in the early 1980's had built the largest independent fertilizer retail operation in the state of Iowa and also served many years as the President of Simonsens Incorporated. With his retirement came the sale of Simonsen Fertilizer to Terra Industries but Doyle never did really retire. Doyle served several Board of Director positions including Western Iowa Technical College and Sioux Valley Hospital among others. We will all miss Doyle but count ourselves very lucky to have had him in our lives as long as we did.
