Dr. Farrol Sims
Dr. Farrol Sims
Beloved husband of Lilian, loving father of Dr. Amanda (Michael Speyer, z’l) Sims and Dr. Leanne Sims and ‘adored’ Zeida of Jacob Sims Speyer and Joshua Sims Speyer.
He was survived by his sisters, Adele (Barry) Rudolph; Gail Muczinski and Jackleigh (Lewis) Ashberg and his sisters-in-law, Madeleine (Max z’l) Trapedo-Dworsky; Cynthia Trapedo and Eleanor (Anthony) Wertheimer, nieces and nephews.
Farrol was an academic geriatrician caring for vulnerable older adults on the North Side of Milwaukee at the Center for Senior Health and Longevity Clinic at Aurora Sinai Medical Center. He previously practiced primary care at the Aurora Geriatrics Institute at Sinai and at Johnston Community Clinic on the South Side of Milwaukee. In all of his roles, he was a valued member of the faculty physicians of the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health and the Aurora UW Medical Group. He had a particular talent for teaching medical students about the care of frail older patients. He was loved by his patients, their families and by the clinic staff.
Farrol was compassionate, gentle, and kind with a wonderful sense of humor. His interests were vast and varied, classical music, the arts, traveling and exploring new countries and good food. Farrol was the eternal optimistic and always took time to ‘smell the roses’.
He will be missed.
Private burial at Second Home Cemetery. Memorial contributions to Congregation Beth Israel Ner Tamid or the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund appreciated.
