Steve R. Simmon, age 68, of Woodville, WI died Wednesday, Feb. 18, 2015 at the Parkview Nursing Home in Woodville, WI with Adoray Hospice.
Steve was born March 7, 1946 in Baldwin, WI to Grant and Mildred (Dahlin) Simmon. He owned and operated an auto parts business. Steve married Barbara Weiland in 1976 at St John’s Lutheran Church in Boyceville, WI. This marriage was blessed by two boys, Troy and Trent.
He loved giving all he had to his boys, spending time at the cabin with family and breakfast on Saturday mornings at the casino. He also enjoyed watching NASCAR racing and going to Cedar Lake Speedway. He always cheered for the Green Bay Packers during football season and was famous for playing jokes and pranks on friends. Playing cards with friends and anyone else who was willing was a simple joy in Steve’s life but one he cherished. He felt blessed to have a wonderful relationship with his nephew Christopher DeSmith and was grateful for his support throughout his life. Steve will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him. “Soggy noodle” you old “Sconnie weasel”!
