The Applied Theatre Center (ATC) is a 501c3 non-profit organization.
Today we mourn the loss of one of our own. Samuel Scott Simmons, Jr., 34, died Saturday, July 6, 2024 after losing a heroic battle with a drug-resistant lung infection.
Born in Greenville, he was the son of Samuel Scott Simmons, Sr. and Susan Clary Simmons. Samuel was a graduate of JL Mann High School and earned an associate degree at Greenville Technical College. He was a member of Greenville’s First Presbyterian Church and the Gathering Sunday Life Group. Samuel treasured home and family, games and conversations, reading and movies. He was a poet, a Lego-builder extraordinaire and an unbeatable trivia buff. He loved exploring new places and trying exotic foods (especially desserts).
Samuel was a charter member of Spectrum Theatre and over the years he wrote and performed many wonderful characters, poems and stories. He was a thoughtful friend and a quiet presence in our group.
A celebration of life will be held on Friday, July 12, 2024 at First Presbyterian Church at 2:00 p.m. followed by a visitation at the church.
When we meet again in September we will keep an empty chair in our circle for Samuel.
