Long-time Milwaukee resident Edward Simmons, shown here with his son-in-law  (top photo), will celebrate his 101st birthday on December 19, 2020. Simmons moved to Milwaukee from Arkansas in the 1940s when he was a young man in his 20s. He worked for the American Motors Corporation for about 20 years before founding his own home building and renovation company. He lived independently in a house he built with his own hands until he was 98 years old.
