Dear Simon,

Tyler and I are standing here today in your honour, not because there were words left unspoken as we were two of the lucky ones that got to be by your side.

We had many conversations, many hugs, many tears and many “I love yous” — we will cherish those moments and forever hold them in our hearts.

My heart is filled with 33 years of incredible
memories. One of the most memorable perhaps being the day I told you we were expecting.
You hugged me and said “I’m ready, are you?”...I cried and said “NO!”
You laughed and said, “We got this!”

We found out we were having a boy and the motorbike shopping began before Tyler was even born!
Of course...only our son would bypass owning and learning how to ride a bicycle and go straight to a dirt bike!

Simon, I told you many times before and will say it again today; you gave me the most precious gift in life — our son
- and went on to raise the most compassionate, patient and loving human being.
Your boy — as you often said to me and many times in recent months “He’s my boy”, the pride in your voice loud and clear.

In 2006, you went on to have your “sweet baby girl” as you have always referred to Samantha. You said to me “What a lucky guy I am to have my kids —a boy and a girl” your family complete.

We blended as a family and as some saw it as different and perhaps a bit odd, we saw it as love and there would be no other way.
Our goal as parents, you, Wendy and me to ensure Tyler and Samantha had each other close by. We spent many family holidays together, including years of Christmas celebrations. How fortunate we felt to watch Tyler and Samantha grow up together alongside our extended families.
Simon you raised two very beautiful, loving children who will carry on your legacy.

You asked me recently if Tyler was going to be okay — strong in your mind was everything your son was doing and had done over the last 23 months and more so the most recent 9 months.
You were overwhelmed by the love and worried about how he would carry on. Simon you raised him to be strong, not to take anything for granted, to cherish life and to be happy.
I promised you I would hold our son close, keep the safety net tight but you mustn’t forget that he carries a part of your heart in his heart — that strong, courageous, compassionate heart and he will be okay.

Your last words to me this week were “If I leave, will you be okay?”, well Si, I will tell you this, my life and that of our family has forever changed, but we will continue on with your example — we will love strongly and say “I love you” at every opportunity.

Just 2 short weeks ago, you asked me to let everyone know — everyone here today — that you were a happy boy, a happy man and I promised you that, but sweetheart, I don’t need to tell everyone; your happiness was infectious and those around you drew strength from your happiness....that smile could light up a room.

R.I.P Simon
We will think of you as living in the hearts of those you touched — For nothing loved is ever lost and you were loved so much.

Love forever,
Simone and Tyler

I'll always remember the amazing memories we made together. You were such an extraordinary person and you truly were the best dad ever. I love you and I miss you.

Simon and I were partners in crime for a long time. We started dating when Tyler was 2 1/2. I had the pleasure of watching Tyler grow up to be an amazing young man. Samantha was a welcomed surprise for us in 2006. Even though things didn’t work out for us we remained good friends focused on raising Samantha. He was an amazing dad.
Simon got sick in August 2018. The two people he called for support were his two ex wives.This did raise several eyebrows at Western and Princess Margaret Hospital while we supported Simon through his surgery and treatment. We weren’t your typical family but we were a family tied together by love. Simon overcame many challenges the past two years battling brain cancer but that never stopped him from being an amazing father and friend.
My heart goes out to Tyler. His sacrifices allowed for Simon to stay at home to the very end. That was made possible by the love and support from his mom Simone and brothers Jeff and Chris.
I am very sad Tyler and Samantha have lost their dad. Simon will live in our hearts and memories forever. Always remembered as an amazing dad, son and friend to many.
I really don’t like not knowing what happens when we die. But I’d really love to believe there is a heaven past the sky.
Thank you for helping raise two incredible souls. Part of you will live within them forever.
Rest In Peace my dear friend.
Love Wendy
