Richard Lynn Simon


Richard Lynn Simon, 71, of Bowling Green, Ohio passed away on Sunday, March 17, 2024.

He was born on December 2, 1952, to the late Cyril and Mary (DeSandro) Simon in Toledo, Ohio.

Rick worked as a dedicated printer for over 48 plus years at Poole Printing. He was instrumental in not only printing precise and quality marketing pieces but the mind behind keeping the mechanics of the presses running.

He was a member of St. Aloysius Catholic Church in Bowling Green and the Franklin Club. He enjoyed gardening and working on all automotives. There was never a mechanical challenge he couldn’t conquer, from a transistor radio to engines of all sorts. He had a sharp mind for historical facts, dates, numbers, and impeccable attention to detail in his work and hobbies. He had a knack for puns and a fun sense of humor. Rick was a friend to all and will be missed dearly.

He is survived by his siblings Mel (Stephanie) Simon of Altamonte Springs, Florida, Sue (Bill) Hainen of Bowling Green, Ohio, Jim Simon of Custar, Ohio, Monica (Dave) Jones of Portage, Ohio, Mike (Linda) Simon of Bowling Green, Ohio, Gary (Tammie) Simon of Bowling Green, Ohio, Diane (Tim) Hainen of Bowling Green, Ohio, Joe (Beckie) of Bowling Green, Ohio, Maria (Bryan) Little of Powell, Ohio, sister-in-law Linda Simon of Perrysburg, Ohio and numerous nieces and nephews.

Along with his parents, Rick was preceded in death by his brother Dan Simon.

Memorial contributions may be given to The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, St. Aloysius Catholic Church or the Gideons International.

Funeral services will be private with the Simon family. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to Dunn Funeral Home located in the Historical District of Bowling Green, Ohio at 408 W. Wooster St.
