Robert Allen Simon, known to most as "Bob," passed away at home in Syracuse on Tuesday, January 10, 2023.
The son of the late H. Max Simon and Elnora B (Gilbert) Simon, Bob was born in North Webster on October 24, 1940. He graduated from Syracuse High School in 1958 and went on to serve honorably in the United States Airforce; he was stationed several places, most notably in San Antonio, Texas and Libya.
Bob was a hard worker. He worked for Klinks Grocery for 15 years and for Fairmont homes for 30+ years. Bob was a travelling serviceman for Fairmont and enjoyed being on the road. Later in his career, he worked in parts.
More personally, Bob is remembered for working at Wawasee Bowl with youth leagues and bowling in several leagues himself - he bowled in many national and regional championships. He was a collector of coins, an ornery jokester and a fan of racing (travelling to Michigan many times for races as he was a season ticket holder.)
Bob is survived by three siblings: Richard Simon of Angola, Mary Reeve of Cromwell and Larry (Robin) Simon of Warsaw. He is also survived by many nieces, nephews and cousins. He was preceded in death by his parents and a sister-in-law, Mary Lou (wife of Richard).
Titus Funeral Home of Syracuse is entrusted with Bob's care. Services will be held in the Owen Chapel, 1001 South Huntington Street, Syracuse on Saturday, January 14, 2023 at 1 p.m. Visitation will be for three hours prior with burial following services at Syracuse Cemetery.
