Joseph "Rev" Simon, Sr., was born February 13, 1927 to the late Jesse "Moot" Simon and Mary York Simon in Bishopville, SC He transitioned from his earthly home on May 10, 2019 at McCoy Memorial Center in Bishopville, surrounded by his family.

He was educated in the Lee County Public School System.

At an early age, he became an active member of Liberty Hill Baptist Church where he served alongside his family.

As a young man, he was employed at Reeves Brother's where he worked for many years. While working at Reeves Brother's, he gained the love and respect of many.

Upon retiring from Reeves Brother's, he worked briefly at Burlington and in the family business, Square Deal Funeral Home. He also tried his hands in construction work. His presence will be greatly missed.

Known to some as Daddy, Rev, Uncle Rev, Sporty or the "Man", he became the Patriarch of the Simon family. Whenever there was a family reunion, he was sure to receive awards for being the oldest, having the most children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren there.

He loved and was so very proud of his family; always complimenting them and telling them "You sure look good"! He made you feel good even if you didn't feel good at that time. He was always making each person feel special with that million dollar smile and simple words "Hey Babe". He was so loved and respected by many.

Aside from his loving parents, he was preceded in death by his wife, Vivian Simon; sons, Joseph B. Simon, James V Simon, and Rodney B. Simon; and seven sisters and two brothers.

He leaves to cherish his precious memories, daughters, Delores (Skeet) Simon, Corinthia (James) Casey, Deborah Reid, Julia (Jack) Young and Vivian C,. (Michael) Simon; grandchildren, Marquetta, Sheritta, Lamont, Myesha, Derrick, Victor Lequan, Lorraine, Jessica, Josh, Danielle, Cornelius, Chadwick, Crystal, and Chauncey; precious great-grands and great-great-grands; sisters, Carrie Simon Dizzley and Shirley Simon Wilson; brother, Roland Simon; many nieces and nephews that he loved and adored; and other cousins, relatives and friends.

On behalf of the Simon family, we thank each of you for the outpouring of love and support exhibited during the illness and passing of our loved one. May God bless each of you!

Sorry for your loss, John. 5:28-29 says all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out. Take comfort in knowing that you will see your loved one again. Please know that God knows your pain and one day soon death will be no more says Isaiah 25:8.

I am so sorry to hear about this unfortunate passing. My condolences go out to the entire family. Hopefully, the family will find comfort in the Bible at Revelation 21:4 where it promises that in the future “death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be any more”. I ask that if you are ever approached by a Jehovah’s Witness, please feel free to express any question you may have about death, so that we may discuss from the Bible the hope that we will see our loved ones again.

My condolences to the Simon families. I'm sorry to hear about the loss of dear Joseph. Some Bible scriptures that have helped me during times of loss include Isaiah 26:19 and Psalm 37:28,29 which states in part: "Your dead ones will live...They will rise up". And the Bible also says "The righteous themselves will possess the earth, and they will forever reside upon it". Therefore the Bible promises that we may be reunited with our loved ones lost in death by means of an earthly resurrection. This is further confirmed by John 5:28,29 which says "Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". This is possible thanks to Jesus Christ's ransom sacrifice. Thus we have a genuine hope of everlasting life in a world without wickedness or suffering.
