Remembering Bob Simon

It’s not typical for a person’s professional colleagues to mourn their death as deeply as their friends and family do. But Bob Simon (1941 - 2015) was not a typical man.
A tenacious newsman, he won 27 Emmy awards for his work over the course of his life (often risking his own well-being for the greater story). The "60 Minutes" correspondent was both beloved and revered, and his death in a car crash at age 73 left millions feeling his loss.
