Birth Year: 1890
Death Year: 1991

At four years, George sang hymns with great devotion and enthusiasm. When he was ten he felt called to be a missionary. He retained his love for the Lord and for music throughout his life. So much so, that after the age of one hundred years old even sang solos in large meetings and on television. He began his work as a missionary, along with his wife, Nessie, in Ecuador. Then explored the Amazon area and across the continent. Collaborated in the compilation of "Hymns of the Christian Life." He also worked with the Bible Societies in several South American countries. He then served as pastor of a Hispanic church in the United States of America. He was a prolific translator of 800 hymns and choral songs. He used some pseudonyms as G. Paul S. and J. Paul Simon.


In 1964 he edited El Himnario which was to become the most widely used Protestant Hispanic hymnbook of this century. Throughout his ministry and particularly in his later years, Simmonds dedicated himself to bring Hispanic hymnody into the Anglo church through his publishing company, Cánticos Escogidos, first based in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and later in Duarte, California.
