On Nov. 24, 2017, Christopher Simone, age 36, was called to be with God and our Lord Jesus. He was the son of Harry and Susan Simone.

He is survived by his children, Ava Simone, 13, and Abby Simone, 9; sister, Rachel and her husband, Bucky; and two brothers, Steven, and John and his wife, Paula.

He was an adored uncle to nieces, Ella, Makayla, Molly and Elana, and nephews, Daniel and Gunner.

Also surviving, is paternal grandmother, Addie; Godmother and maternal aunt, Kathy; paternal aunts, Shari, Wendy and Claudette; and numerous cousins.

He was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Albert and Virginia; Godfather and uncle, Dennis; and paternal grandfather, Harry.

Christopher was born in New Jersey, but grew up on Kent Island, Maryland, where he was active in jazz band, boy scouts and winning several photography awards, until moving to Ocean City in 1996.

Graduating from Stephen Decatur High School in 1998, and Baltimore School of Massage in 2000, he attended Wor-Wic Community College with plans to be an addictions counselor.

Christopher played the saxophone, piano, keyboards and guitar. He loved the outdoors, spending summers in Maine sailing and fly fishing at Camp Kennebec, canoeing from New York to Canada, hiking the Appalachian Trail, repelling the mountains of West Virginia, to boating in the Florida Keys.

He was also a machinist and mechanic by trade and was employed by Days Aluminum as a gutter mechanic. If he wasn’t working on cars or motorcycles, he was exercising at the Atlantic Club.

Above all, Christopher loved his girls, Ava and Abby. Faith, family and trying to help others were always important to him. He will be deeply missed, but loved always by so many.

A mass of Christian Burial will be held on Friday, Dec. 1, 2017 at 10 a.m. at Holy Savior Catholic Church in Ocean City. Rev. Joseph Kennedy will officiate. Interment will be private for the family.
