(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.
