Richard (Dick) Simon

SIMON: Richard (Dick) Simon passed away on Wednesday, Nov. 4, 2020. Richard was born in Pittsburgh on April 27,1921. Richard was a devoted husband to his wife of 65 years, Nancy (Lichtenstul), until her passing in 2015. Dick is survived by his beloved children, Sharon Dunlap (Donnie) and Kenneth Simon (Linda), and his cherished grandchildren, Chad, Jessica, Wesley and Kevin, who were his pride and joy. Richard, a graduate of the University of Michigan in 1943, devoted his life to giving back: He served his country in World War II, his community as a dedicated volunteer leader with several local organizations — most notably Rodef Shalom Congregation and Jewish Healthcare Foundation — and was “ever loyal to his ZBT.” Dick will be remembered by his family, friends, bridge and poker buddies, and brothers for his kindness, wisdom and wit. Services and interment were private. Contributions in Richard’s memory will be welcome by The Biblical Botanical Garden at Rodef Shalom Congregation or the Zeta Beta Tau Foundation. Arrangements entrusted to Ralph Schugar Chapel, Inc., family owned and operated.
