Not sure what to say?

Simon was a close friend for many years. He is one of the most caring persons I have ever met. I miss him very much, and know how much his family must miss him. With deepest sympathy, love and respect. Margie

Simon was my friend. He was always kind, always delightful, and always had a kind word for me. But above all, I think of him as a true, true gentleman. And in the country that I come from, there are few higher honors. I will really miss him.

Sometimes, every once in a while you meet a person for the first time and immediately feel a connection whereas other times things don't manifest that easily. Simon stayed in my mind from the first meeting on. His positive energy along with his kind, fun loving way of connecting and showing interest was contagious and made me want to be a better person, a better parent, ...a better golfer...
Wish we could have met more often.
You are missed and remembered, Simon.

To the Vasquez Jr Family. I don't know you but my heart goes out to you for your loss. Growing up we lived behind Simon on Mildred St. in Pittsburg and Simon and i would talk over the fence lots of time. We both went Pitts.High. We were neighbors for about 8 years. I will miss you Simon. Your Neighbor Joe Orozco

Our Daddy!!! xoxo
