Obituary

Ken Simon may be gone, and his “friends and family will tell you he’s in a better place”, but forever you will be in our hearts and will be missed and thought of always.

Kenneth L. Simon of Fargo, ND formerly of Minnewaukan, ND passed away November 14, 2017 at the age of 53. He was born December 21, 1963 at Maddock, ND to Kenneth and Veronica (Kupser) Simon. He was raised on the family farm outside of Minnewaukan, ND. Kenneth attended Minnewaukan Public School, and North Dakota State School of Science.

During Ken’s younger years he enjoyed playing basketball, hunting, fishing, snowmobiling and riding motorcycles. Music of all kinds and playing it loud was always something he enjoyed. Ken enjoyed camping with his family and friends over the years along with our days at the Lee Lake Campground, where we have met many good friends over the years. He was an avid fan of the NFL and would watch every chance he could. Ken loved to watch PBS cooking shows every Saturday morning where he got the great ideas for Sunday night meals. Ken was always gentle with a sense of humor, gift of gab, and could strike up a conversation with anyone he met.

Ken worked in the electrical electronics field at Northern Pipe Products, Swanson Health Products, Northern Grain Equipment, Toyoda, and American Crystal. Of all his jobs he enjoyed the most was working with area farmers on their grain equipment, as farming was in his blood from childhood.

Ken is survived by his high school sweetheart, loving wife of 24 years, Cindy Clifton Simon, his son Joshua and granddaughter Alaina. Recently found on his phone was a quote by Michael Caine: “Grandchildren fill a hole that you never knew you had.” Ken is also survived by 3 sisters; Connie Michels, Edmore, ND; Maggie(John) Swenson, Fargo, ND; Karen (Frank) Lebron, Colorado Springs, CO. Nephews Ryan, Brandt, Kyle, Jesse (Robin) and Jordan. Nieces Kristi and Kimberly, and several great nieces and nephews

Ken was preceded in death by his parents, brother Duane, sister Mary, several aunts and uncles and his in-laws Phyllis and Arnold Clifton.

    I am so sorry for your loss. May the words of our loving heavenly Father bring your family comfort and strength during this most difficult time as He promises to bring our loved ones back to life in a perfect world where there will be no more suffering or death (John 5:28-29 & Revelation 21:4).

    Uncle Kenny, we didn’t get to see one another before your passing but I was able to be at your benefit and saw you. Aunt Cindy, Josh and little one my thoughts and prayers are with you during this time of loss. Uncle Kenny was definitely one of a kind. May God embrace you all with his love and may he hold you tightly as he walks you through the days ahead. May he help you through those very tough days. I think Uncle Kenny was tired of fighting and being in pain. May he rest in peace now free of pain.
    Love you all

    Ken was my next door neighbor when we both spent summers at Lee Lake. We had many great times together out on the lake with our pontoons. You will be missed. I will keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers.

    Cindy,
    My sincere condolences go out to you and your family. Ken’s resistance was so remarkable that despite the seriousness of his condition I am shocked to hear that he passed.

    I’ll always think of Ken as a kind and fun guy. I remember not knowing him that well and then we had this long conversation at an event and I thought how very cool and intelligent he was. He was kind of amazing to me. After that whenever I saw him at gatherings I always tried to edge my way to his area to see what he had to say that night 🙂
    I’ll miss that. I’ll miss his presence.

    My heart goes out to you, girly girl. And of course to the kids. And to all of the so many of us who feel his loss. I hope that I’ll have some opportunity to help with some thing that will lighten your load.
    Praying for strength for you all,
    Jean Durben
