Ronald Steven Simon

January 3, 1955 — August 4, 2023

STOCKHOLM – Ronald Steven “Boogeyman” Simon 68, unexpectedly returned to his Father in Heaven on August 4, 2023. He was born on January 3, 1955 in Fort Kent, Maine, the beloved son of Roger J. and Shirley (Ouellette) Simon. His father was a Fire Warden with the Maine Forestry Service in the Allagash and he spent much of his childhood through early adulthood as a lumberjack.  The family was stationed on Fire Watch Towers on Rocky Mountain and later at Estcourt Station.   They later moved to the Caribou/Woodland area in 1967.  In 1972, he left Caribou High School early to serve in the U.S. Army at Fort Knox, KY with his brother James and Uncle Thomas.  Upon his return home, he graduated from UMPI with a Bachelors in Business Administration and married Cathy (Ellis) Simon in 1975.  They spent their early married years building the Harley Davidson parts & service business in Woodland.  He helped operate Roger J. Simon and Sons Trucking and Logging, along with Simon’s Trailer Park with his parents and siblings.  He was a life-long truck driver and loved telling tales of his truck driving travels all over the US.  He was a comedian at heart.  He lived for the shock factor with people and was well known for his larger-than-life antics.  He loved to bust a move, dancing to any song with a good beat, which earned him the nickname “Boogeyman”.  His life-motto was “Live Life Full Throttle” and in good times or bad, he always lived life to the fullest. 

Ronald was predeceased by his parents Roger and Shirley of Woodland, and two granddaughters, Heidi and Harley Simon.  He is survived by his children, Cher Simon-Weston and husband Michael of Sanford, Harley David Simon of Gorham, Ashlee Ellingwood and husband Jon of Dyer Brook, and Harmony Beckwith of Presque Isle, his brothers, Roger James Simon of Woodland and Franklin Dale Simon and his wife Daryla of Cross Lake, his sisters, Carrie (Simon) Strelka and husband Mark of Fort Fairfield and Sheila (Simon) Aleman and husband Esequiel, Jr of Fitchburg, MA, his grandchildren, Mitchell Steven Thompson, Coty Robert Cameron, Kyle Matthew Spooner, Hunter Cathy Martin and Rylee Saucier, one great-granddaughter, Tayla Spooner, as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Family and Friends are invited to a Memorial Service which will be held at the Mockler Funeral Home, 24 Reservoir St, Caribou, on Friday, August 11, 2023, at 1PM with Pastor Michael Hood officiating. A private family committal service will be held at the Northern Maine Veterans Memorial Cemetery, 37 Lombard Road, Caribou at a later date.
