Obituary for Cyril H. Simon

Cyril H. Simon, passed away on Sunday, May 12, 2019, at the Villa Loretto Nursing Home with his loving wife of seventy years, Athleen, holding his hand. He was born on January 16, 1921, in Fond du Lac, the son of Michael and Rosa (Koenen) Simon. Cyril met Athleen at the dancehall in Eldorado and on February 5, 1949 they were married at St. Brendan’s Catholic Church in Brandon. Cyril was the owner of Cyril Simon Sand and Gravel. He dug many of the basements for the homes in the St. Peter area.

He enjoyed playing Blackjack; and he and Athleen made many trips to Las Vegas. He also enjoyed woodworking; and his children will always cherish the gifts he made them for Christmas. He was a member of Holy Family Parish and attended St. Peter’s Catholic Church in St. Peter. He was also a member of the East Shore Lions and volunteered as an eye transporter for them. He was a member of the St. Peter Athletic Club and at one time served as a director. On summer Sunday afternoons you would find him watching baseball games at the St. Peter Athletic Club diamond cheering on his sons and grandchildren.

He is survived by his wife, Athleen; his children, Anna (Bill) Klinke, Dan (Sherry) Simon, Tim (Judy) Simon, Julie (Jeff) Kraemer, Doug (Cindy) Simon, Fran (Mike) Holzmann, Pat (Chris) Simon, and Paul (Pam) Simon; eighteen grandchildren; twelve great-grandchildren with two more on the way. He is further survived by three sisters-in-law, Mildred Simon, Patricia Hunter, and Marilyn Smith; and a brother-in-law, Phil Ruedinger.

He was preceded in death by his parents; one daughter, Janet; three sisters and their spouses, Cres (Oscar) Marggi, Elvira (Ed) Dubberstein, and Natalie (Ralph) Basler; four brothers, Ambrose, Francis and his wife Joan, Alex and Bob and his wife Babe. He was also preceded in death by his brothers-in-law Jim Smith, Bob Hunter and Wes Williams; and two sisters-in-law, Ann Ruedinger and Eileen and her husband Jim Pinch.
