Dear Sandy and all the Simon family,
Deepest condolences on the passing of Stan. Stan was the man. A wonderful husband, Father, Grandfather and Great Grandfather. He was always so much fun. He and Sandy were a beautiful couple. Whenever I was in his company, I knew I would have a great time and laugh. Stan had such a wonderful sense of humor. A joke for every occasion!
When Katie got married, he was amazing! He showed everyone in attendance, his love of God. Stan was a veteran, which I didn’t know til I read his obituary.
So Stan loved his family and his country. Stan was just one of the nicest guys ever! God Bless him and it was an honor to know him!
Love, Margie Miller Tabshey

I had the honor of chanting a Friday evening service with Stanley at Congregation Sons of Israel. Stanley loved singing this service and especially the "Hashkivenu" which he sang with great fervor and feeling. His voice echoed throughout the congregation filling us all with joy. It was a double pleasure for me to share the pulpit with Stanley as I grew up in this congregation and was thrilled to have been able to sing with him.

May his memory be a blessing to all who knew him and loved him.

With heartfelt condolences,

Ann (Millstein) Segal

Dear Sandy, Scott, Gary, Terri, and the extended Simon family.

I am so sorry to hear about Stan. He is a part of so many of my childhood memories, including hearing cantorial music as I walked into the house on Tumelty Road and his joking and gentle teasing. He was truly a 'larger than life' personality. Although we can't all be together, please know that he will be greatly missed and will be remembered with great fondness.

Dear Sandy,
I am so sad to hear that Stan has passed due to the virus. He was such a wonderful man. You and he were always so friendly to me when I attended classes, services, or events at the Shul. He will be missed by all who knew him.

I spent many happy mornings walking with Stan and sometimes Sandy at the North Shore Mall. We could always rely on Stan to tell a joke, or as he would say, a bit of humor. They were mostly groaners but occasionally he would come up with a really good one. We will all miss Stan but we are grateful to have known him.
