After retiring as the dog warden, Simon spent most of his time outdoors, whether he was hunting, mowing his lawn or camping. Many people got to enjoy “the campground down behind Simon’s”. He was known for his yard full of flowers, especially his prized dahlias. In addition to the outdoors, he also loved dancing, singing and music. Some of his favorite artists were Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, not to mention big band orchestra and if it was a Sunday, polka would be playing on the radio all afternoon. He also loved playing cards, animal watching, especially deer in the backyard and cooking. If you stopped by for a visit, you didn’t leave without him offering you a drink and something to go with it.
A memorial service will be held on July 15, 2017 at 10:00 a.m. in the Sheffield United Methodist Church, 11 West Main Street Sheffield, Pennsylvania 16347.
