Simon, Frederick J.

Simon, Frederick J. May 15, 1937 - Sep 28, 2015 Frederick J. Simon passed away peacefully at his home the morning of September 28th, 2015, his loving family at his bedside. As father, grandfather, husband, brother, leader and friend - he inspired us all with his passion, dedication, humor and incredible generosity. From his ground-breaking work in marketing at Omaha Steaks to his commitment to community, there is so much to be learned from his life. Born on May 15, 1937, he attended Central High School and the University of Pennsylvania and spent his life enriching Omaha in numerous ways. He was preceded in death by his parents Lester and Trudy Simon and his brother, Stephen Simon. He is survived by his wife Eve Simon; son Todd Simon (Betiana); daughter Venus Simon French; stepson Richard Ortega (Sheila); stepdaughter Marisa Mayhan (Michael); and eight grandchildren: Susannah, Sarah, Aaron, Adam, Shemaya, Mia, Nico and Julian. Though Fred's list of accomplishments is long and impressive, we'll remember the kind, generous man and take solace in the fact that his legacy will live on.

To the Simon family. I have known Fred all of my life. He and my Father had business interests together, and he was a true friend to my family. He showed me many kindnesses through the years, and never asked for anything in return. He will truly be missed, and my sympathies to the family. Sincerely - Chuck Lambooy

My thoughts are with the entire Simon family. Fred was a bright, passionate,
energetic, creative soul . . . a wonderful boss and friend to me during my
years at Omaha Steaks.


Family Very Sorry For Your Loss; I worked with the family for many at Table Supply downtown under direction of Mickey. We continued to do business with the family for many at our cafe in South Omaha and met most. I guess from the early days at CHS I have went way back with the family.While at Table Supply we were the first to use the new packaging process for meat still used today

God Bless All
