Condolence From: Ellen Jameson
Condolence: The time I spent working for Tom Simon at the Aquatic Research Center strongly shaped my understanding of what it means to be a mentor and a dedicated scientist. He cared deeply about all of his commitments and, without fanfare, set an example of how to work towards those commitments. He was a wonderful supervisor, colleague, and all-around human being, always cheerful and kind, and always an energetic and creative force - and he was all of these things for so many people in the many arenas of his life. He made his field and his community brighter, and I hope I will always be better for having learned from him. I was shocked and sad to learn that he is gone, and I want to offer my most heartfelt condolences to his family and friends, in whom he took so much joy.

Condolence: I just learned of Dr. Simon's passing. I never met him personally, but he was my professor in three classes at American Public University. I have never had a person take such an active interest in my educational goals or in me as a person. He continued to correspond with me after my last class and I would frequently ask his advice, usually through LinkedIn, which gave generously and completely. I had hoped to meet him someday and I am truly saddened to learn of his passing. Please accept my condolences for your loss.

Condolence: Dr. Simon was was a wonderful mentor and always saw the best in people, no matter the situation. He was one of my first teachers in SPEA and I had the pleasure to work with him as both a TA and as a researcher. He always supported his students and was very generous with his time, volunteering with the local high school, IMN classes, and many others. He spent his entire career working to protect our planet's resources and made the world a better place along the way. I am thankful to have known him and know that his optimism and cheer will live on in all of his friends, family and students.

Condolence: To the Simon family,
I initially met Tom when I started with the USGS in 1992. Tom was someone who reviewed our fish vouchers. He was always helpful, energetic, and thoughtful. I was fortunate to do some fish community field work with him and learned something new every time I was out with him. Whenever we talked we caught up with our lives and for Tom that meant family. He was incredibly proud of his kids and how he married up. He was a good man and will be missed. My heart and thoughts are with all the family.

Condolence: I am deeply and truly sorry for the sudden passingly of the great Dr. Thomas Simon. He was not only a gentle and kind man, but a very intelligent and respected individual of the scientific community. I offer my condolences to his loved ones as well as to those who Dr. Simon has touched in one way or another. I only knew Tom for a short time but I looked up to this man for his wisdom, integrity and genius that he possessed. I hope one day I can reach as high as he did. I am honored to have been part of his legacy in the fisheries community and the knowledge he instilled. Rest in Peace Dr. Simon

Condolence: Words can not express how we all feel about the loss of Tom. He was a great guy and a very rare friend for almost 30 years. He loved his family deeply and told stories of each one of you every time we visited. He was so proud of his family. Tom's outlook was always a positive one regardless of the situation. He was a great teacher, colleague, friend, husband and father. We will miss him.

Condolence: Tom was a wonderful teacher of our Master Naturalist classes at Muscatatuck NWR and really got the students excited about the subjects he taught (crayfish and fish). We will greatly miss seeing him here. My deepest sympathy to his family and friends.

Condolence From: Cody Fleece
Condolence: I am stunned and deeply saddened to learn of the passing of someone I greatly admired. Tom and I worked together on fisheries surveys in Tennessee, West Virginia, and Ohio. In our travels to these distant locations and in our time in the field I feel that I came to know him very well. This may be no solace to you, his family, in your time of mourning but his was a life well-lived. He lived with a passion and energy that few will ever know. I am terribly sorry that it was cut too short.

Condolence: Dear family - I was a colleague of Tom's at Ivy Tech; we worked together teaching two different sections of a physiology course this summer. I was so shocked and saddened to hear of his passing, and I extend my condolences to you all and pray that you all feel the comforting presence of God's love during this very difficult time. I only met Tom this past May, but in that short time I so very much enjoyed working with him; he was so friendly and engaging and cared so much about his Ivy Tech students. I am proud to call him a colleague in education, and I am thankful that my last interaction with him - last Thursday evening - was of us shaking hands and telling each other how much of a pleasure it has been working together. I regret that my schedule prevented me for attending the visitation or funeral, but know that I will miss him very much, and I will continue to hold you, the family he loved, in my thoughts and prayers. ~Kyle
