Entered into paradise on September 18th, 2021 At Memorial Hermann The Woodlands The Woodlands, Texas Age of 75

Simon, aka: My old man, Dad, Pops, Papa, and Don Simon. He is survived by his wife, best friend, and road dog for 54 years, Mauri/Doc "Marie", his daughter, Anna and son, Joseph. Simon stood as the patriarch of his family, which is 2 children, 7 grandchildren, 5 great-grandchildren, a son-in-law, and daughter-in-law.

This man, our King, lived a full life. Born and raised in the streets of Southern California, and graduated from John Muir High School in Pasadena, California. After honorably serving in the Air Force, he met the love of his life and settled into the City of La Puente, Ca to raise his family.

His zest for life included many things people dared to do in their lifetime. He bought a horse for his love. He was a photographer. He cooked. He built a Harley with his two giant hands. He built a playhouse for his grand-daughter, again with his two giant hands. He taught his daughter to drive a stick shift and she inherited his toughness. He showed his son how to fish and become the man he is today. He trained dogs. He hunted. He was a joker, a smoker, and a midnight toker. He once sky-dived from 13,000 ft. Rumor has it he once took Calculus at Stanford. Only to find out it was Anthony Calculus, his friend, who just needed a ride. He traveled around this beautiful country with his partner in crime “Doc”, and their sidekick, Rio, seeing things people dream about, all the while listening to Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimmy Hendrix, and Janis Joplin. The depth of his vocabulary and wisdom was due to his passion and love for reading. He was stubborn to the core, yet loved and was admired by so many people in his life. He was a father to other people’s kids and they attached themselves to him. He loved America, he loved his family, and he fell in love with God.

His legacy runs deep within his family, who knows they will see him again, in paradise. Not seeing him will be undeniably hard, yet he lives inside all of his family, all day, and every day, for all of our years. He has only passed from this Earth.

“He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”

Revelation 21:4
