Pembrooke Pines, FL

Duane Edward Simon, born June 23, 1967, passed away unexpectedly Sunday, January 19, 2020 at the age of 52.

Duane is survived by his parents, Edward and L. Kay Simon; his wife, Elisa; his children, Terra (Adam) Krouse, Kylee, and Tyler; siblings, Gene (Lisa) Simon, and Brenda (Eric) Batson; 3 beautiful granddaughters, Rowan, Laina, and Aria; nephews, Zack, Hayden, EJ, and Carter; nieces, Kayla, Megan, Madison, and Peyton.

Duane attended Michigan State University where he majored in criminal justice.  He took pride in providing for his family. He was an extremely hard worker. He started in the construction industry as a carpenter apprentice and worked his way up to owning a commercial interiors business alongside friend and business partner, Douglas Walker.

He was beloved for his outgoing personality as well as for his work ethic. Friends and family will remember his love for adventure, a good prank, never being shy to speak his mind, poking fun of those around him, and for sunshine and his flip flops.  We will always remember the joy he brought into our lives, and the wisdom he shared with those who were lucky enough to know him. He will be deeply missed.

Funeral Gathering will be celebrated 4-6 PM Saturday, February 1, 2020 at Tiffany Funeral Home, 3232 W. Saginaw St, Lansing, MI 48917.
