Alfred M. Simon Obituary
Alfred Mason Simon, 92, died in the evening of April 1, at his home at Lasell Village in Newton, MA. He was the son of Carl and Mary Simon, brother of the late Blanche Weinstein and Claire Bensusan, father of Jeffrey and his wife, Ginny (Schulman) Simon of Ipswich, MA, Marc Simon and his companion Susan Thorne of Ipswich, Doug Simon and his wife Lisa Aubin of Wendall, Ma. and Lisa Simon, of Boston. He was the grandfather of Benjamin Simon, Kelly (Simon) McSweeney and her husband Ross, Rachael (Simon) Cordella and her husband Dan, Rebecca (Simon) Higgins and her husband Paul, Abigail Simon and her fiance Ahmad Alsaadi, and Carl Simon and his wife Kate Dailey. He was the happy great-grandfather of Evelyn and Benjamin Cordella, Fiona and Caleb McSweeney, Niamh Conor, and Aisling Higgins and Adrian Simon. Al Simon was born in 1925 of immigrant parents from Russia. He grew up in Waltham and Newton. He was set on joining the Marines, sweating by putting a floor in his attic in the middle of summer in order to meet the weight requirement to enlist. He remained a proud Marine for the rest of his life. After graduating from Yale University, he married his high school sweetheart, Dookie Simon, who predeceased him, and was later happily married to Edie Simon, until her death. In recent years he was fortunate to have Jackie Fink as his friend and companion. For many years he was in the textile business in Waltham and Framingham with his father Carl, as the son in Carlsons Mills. He was a life long skier and tennis player. He lived a long full life, centered on his family, his country and his faith. Services were held on Wednesday, April 4 at Levine Chapels. Burial followed at Sharon Memorial Park, Sharon. In lieu of flowers, remembrances may be made to the American Technion Society, 1 Gateway Center, Suite 716, Newton, MA 02458
