    Simon was a great person and everyone who knew him will miss him greatly. We worked together for years in the alarm business and we always enjoyed the work.

    I didn’t know Simon very long but long enough to know that he was a terrific father and grandfather and a great person in general. My sympathies are with the family, Rest In Peace My Friend
