It is with a heavy heart that i must write that our dear friend Ronnie Simonsen passed away yesterday afternoon. Here is a post from Kim Ho, his sister.
Ronnie died peacefully at 4:30pm this afternoon. He had a wonderful day. He was laughing with the nurses. He walked to the solarium with Jake and Ellen. When he returned to his room, he sat in the chair and quickly loss consciousness. He never regained consciousness. I will share funeral plans when they’ve been named
Funeral arrangements are as follows:
The viewing will be held at Douglas and Johnson Funeral Home on 214 Main Street in Salem NH this Saturday from 2 to 6 pm.
The funeral will be at Triumphant Cross Lutheran Church (TCLC) on 171 Zion Hill Road in Salem NH at 2 pm on Sunday.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to the Ronald Simonsen Memorial Fund c/o TCLC at 171 Zion Hill Road, Salem NH 03079.
Ronnie will be sorely missed. He was a wonderful, positive man with a zest for life. I was fortunate enough to be able to speak with him this past Saturday. Even then he spoke of acting, and of the skits he did, and of the wonderful people he knew.
He asked for those of you he knew from Jabberwocky (almost all of you by name, actually, as well as a few that are from years past. What a wonderful memory he had!), and said at least one positive thing about each of you.
Know that Ronnie held all of us in his Jabberwocky family – past and present – in very high regard. As I’m sure we all will remember him in the exact same way.
