Robert David "Bob" Simms (February 17, 1960 - October 31, 1978) was a character in the original Halloween played by John Michael Graham.


Bob Simms was born on February 17, 1960 to David Simms and Christine Simms in Haddonfield, Illinois. He was a student at Haddonfield High School where he was on the baseball team as pitcher and tight end for the football team. He was also one of the top students of his class and possible valedictorian.[2] He had a girlfriend named Lynda Van Der Klok. On the night of Halloween 1978, Bob and Lynda drove towards the Wallace house so they could have sex. They normally used his father's van but, since it was autumn and thus too cold, they planned to be at the Wallaces' since their friend Annie Brackett was babysitting there. The original plan was for them to arrive and Annie to distract little Lindsey Wallace, then Lynda and Bob would go into another room for sex. When they arrived and saw that no one was home, Lynda called Laurie Strode to find out what was happening. Once they discovered that Lindsey was gone for the night and Annie had gone to pick up her boyfriend Paul, the couple went towards the master bedroom and had sex.

Bob Simms' Death

Bob is pinned to the wall.

Afterwards, Lynda had Bob go downstairs to get some beers. While in the kitchen, the back door opened and Bob figured it was Lynda playing a prank on him. When he opened the closet, Michael Myers rushed out, lifted Bob up on the wall and stabbed him in the chest with a butcher knife, pinning him to the wall. His body was later discovered by Laurie Strode in the upstairs bedroom, where it had been suspended from the ceiling.[3] Bob was buried on November 3, 1978 in Mt. Sinclair Cemetery. His funeral director was James Petersen. [4]

In the comics, on Halloween 2003, Bob's corpse, and the corpses of Annie Brackett and Lynda Van der Klok, were dug up by Laurie Strode (who had become Michael in her mind) and put in a room in the same position that they were in on Halloween 1978. The three corpses were later discovered by Lindsey Wallace. Their bodies were once again buried and were buried in their rightful caskets,

He is the 4th human victim of Michael Myers.
