Simon Alexander
(Born on July 19, 1997 and passed away on March 25, 2019.)

Beloved son to Mark and Deborah, cherished baby brother to Lauren (Tristan Rapp). Treasured grandson to Michael and Patricia Simpson of Scotland, as well as Sophie and the late Sam Cheresna of Ingleside. Simon was a light in the lives of his family, friends, and colleagues who are too numerous to mention. Simon will forever be in our hearts and remembered for his kindness, infectious smile, witty sense of humour, and loving disposition. He was a talented mason who was trained in the Heritage and Traditional Masonry program at Algonquin College in Perth. That program fostered his love for historic architecture. Simon's skills were recognized when he was chosen by the College to demonstrate stone carving at Canada 150 celebrations on Canada Day in the Byward Market. Simon had an eclectic taste in music and a love of nature. He enjoyed challenging and thoughtful dialogues and always respected the views of others regardless of his own beliefs. Simon was a young man that promoted his principles by living them. His life was cut short by a momentary lapse of reason, which was a contradiction to the wisdom he attained through his continuous pursuit of knowledge and understanding.

We are deeply proud of our beautiful son Simon and always will be.

Donations can be made in Simon's honour to the Ottawa Riverkeeper ( ).
A Memorial Gathering will be held in the
C.R. Gamble Funeral Home & Chapel Inc.
(127 Church St., Almonte, ON., 613-256-3313)
On Tuesday, April 2, 2019 from 5pm to 6pm. Family and Friends will be invited to share memories at 6pm. Reception to follow in the funeral home until 8pm.
“Loved By Everyone”

Our deepest sympathies to the Cheresna family on such a devastating loss. There are just no words. Simon was an incredible person and a very special friend to our son Josh. He will truly be missed. May your cherished memories of Simon bring you comfort and peace. Our hearts go out to you.

What I will always remember about Simon is how we would always find something to connect and bond over that made sure we weren't just cousins, but we were genuinely mates. When we were young, Simon would constantly challenge me to endless games of chess, or we would make up huge fantasy worlds with our LEGO. As we grew older we kept in contact from the other side of the world and talked about video games or music. To my disbelief, the last time we met Simon was able to join the small group of people who recommended me music that I actually enjoyed. We were family and we were mates. Rest easy Simon, you will be missed.

Debbie and family, please accept our sincere condolences for the loss of your son Simon. May the memories you have of your time with Simon stay with you always. Allow those memories to bring a smile, a laugh and even a tear. This will be a sign that he is with you and watching over you. Hugs.

I met Simon in grade 7 at Bridlewood and continued a friendship with him throughout the years. Simon lit up any room he was in with his fun personality and witty jokes, and I will always remember him for that. Sending my deepest condolences to Simon's family and anyone who had the pleasure to know him.
