Dear Pops,
You had an infectious smile and wonderful presence that we will all miss. Though we didn't get to see each other often living so far apart, we always spoke about you and Beebs with endearment. We know you are united with your loving wife now and that you will watch over all of you kids, grandkids & great-grandkids with much adoration and love. Rest in peace dear uncle. You are greatly missed. With love, your great-niece Lydia, Mieszko, Nevin & Vivienne Chuchla

To all of my cousins,
We send our sincerest condolences for your loss. Thinking of you all today as you lay Pops to rest.
Sincerely, Lydia & Family

I regret not having the pleasure of meeting Mr. Simone, but I sense that I have "known" him through knowing Sal, Rita, and their children who worked at Simone & Son.

In all of the deserving and loving tributes that will be forthcoming for Mr. Simone, I hope the family is comforted by knowing that he not only provided for them, but also for his countless employees and their families who benefited from receiving a fair wage, health care, some money for a vacation, and a pension. Those union benefits paid by Mr. Simone and his son will continue to provide for their employees for many years, and is one of the many wonderful legacies of the company he began many years ago.

Rest well, Mr. Simone. We stand on the shoulders of giants like yourself!

My heart skipped a beat when I saw this. Mario took me in to his company and family and I'm so blessed that he did. Taught me great lessons about life, business and respect. I'm sure he saw thru my 30 year old maverick attitude and gave me room to grow. What a great man and great family. Thank you for all the memories. God bless your soul.

Mr Simony represents the last of a dying breed. He is an icon who held family close and dear, honored friendships, and cared for people unconditionally. I cannot tell you how many times Mr Simone's presence would just light up the room and I looked forward to seeing him at many events. The jovial way he approached life and the friendly bantering bath and forth are just a few of the memories I have of him. He will definitely be missed. Rest in Peace Mr Simone.
