Giant Treat From Former Clovis High Grad

Posted:
CLOVIS, Calif. (KMPH) -

A Clovis High graduate of 1975 decided to give 100 of his former classmates something to talk about for the rest of the summer.  David Simpson is a successful businessman now living in St. Louis who has never forgotten his roots.   He's also a huge Giants fan.

Simpson arranged to have two charter busses ready to hit the road Saturday morning for A–T–&–T Park in San Francisco.  He invited former classmates from Clovis High and Fort Washington Elementary.  The invitations were sent on Face book.   "Oh my gosh, a tremendous response.   Everybody loves it.   At first people couldn't, like what, were going to the game.   I'm like yes it's all taken care of let's all go and have a good time."

Simpson went first class.  His former classmates got to watch the Giants play the Florida Marlins in a suite that seats 100.   Simpson started an auto and home warranty company in St. Louis and parlayed that into multiple companies.  "I decided that as you get older in age family and friends are what count most.   I wanted to reconnect with everybody.   I'm professionally lucky that I could do this so I said let's all get together and have a good time."

It was a day made to order for David Simpson as the Giants beat the Marlins 2-1.
