PRICE - Our beloved Emil Simone, 87, has finally gone to meet our Lord and Savior Jesus on Aug. 13, 2013. He leaves behind a wife, son, daughter, grandson, great-granddaughter and many loving nieces and nephews who affectionately called him dad or grandpa.

Emil was born Nov. 6, 1925 in Columbia to Angelo and Angelina DeGrazia DeSimone.

On May 17, 1948, he married the love of his life, Renee Anderson in Price.

Emil leaves behind a legacy that few people could ever dream of. He honorably served his country in the U.S. Army during World War II where he was awarded the Bronze Star for heroism. He served as a machine gunner and always spoke highly of his service to his country. Emil was a dedicated member of the Price American Legion Post # 3 where he will be greatly missed by his "buddies". He retired from the Carbon County School District where he worked as a mechanic and bus driver for 30 years. Emil always had a good joke to share and he loved to make everyone laugh. He loved everyone and was highly respected and loved by all.

Survived by his loving wife of 65 years, Renee Simone, Price; son, Rick (Penny) Simone, Kearns; daughter, Janice Miller, Portland, Ore; grandson, Richard Troy (Candice) Simone, great-granddaughter, Cayley Simone, all of Salt Lake City; many nieces, nephews, neighbors and friends who will dearly miss him.
