Simeon was a very quiet man whose unconditional love for his family and community was evident in his passion of teaching and nurturing the many children who he taught in his 40 plus years as a teacher. He was an avid gardener in his spare time and anyone who ever got to see his office at school could tell you it was like a beautiful greenhouse filled with many different, beautiful plants, each one getting special care and attention. Simeon was also very involved with St. James Anglican Church, he was an active lay minister for 58 years and only retired from this position after becoming ill. He has touched many lives and anyone who was fortunate enough to have been blessed with his presence will fondly remember his quiet demeanour and kindness to all. In keeping with Simeon's wishes cremation has taken place. The family received friends and neighbours on Monday December 10, from 2-4 and 7-9 P.M. at East Haven Funeral Home.
