Obituary for Frank E. Simo

Frank E. Simo
Frank E. Simo, 97, of Kenosha, passed away peacefully on Saturday, April 14, 2018, at Hospice Alliance Hospice House in Pleasant Prairie, surrounded by his loving family.
Born on October 6, 1920, in Kenosha, he was the son of the late Paul and Theresa (Drgo) Simo.
He attended Kenosha Senior High School. In 1943, he received a BSEE degree in Electrical Engineering, power major, from Marquette University in Milwaukee. In 1953, he received a BSEE in Electrical Engineering, electronics major, from The Milwaukee School of Engineering. He also served as an adjunct professor of electrical engineering at The University of Wisconsin-Parkside.
On June 25, 1949, he married Joyce Irene Johnson at St. Mark’s Catholic Church. She preceded him in death on February 5, 2018.
He served in the United States Army Signal Corps during World War II, where he taught classes in Radar. He retired from Eaton Corporation where he worked for 44 years. His responsibilities took him from Electronics Design Engineer, Chief Applications Engineer to Manager of Engineered Drive Systems. He was a US patent holder, a member of The Eaton Society of Inventors, and the author of numerous technical papers published in technical magazines and journals.
He was a member of St. Mark’s Catholic Church, Knights of Columbus, Kenosha Serra Club, Elks Club, KYF, Jednota Society, Triangle Fraternity, and a Senior member of The Institute of Electrical Engineers. His hobbies included photography, golf, piano, swimming, gardening, and playing keno.
Frank is survived by his seven children, Tim (Karen) Simo of Placentia, CA, Gary (Debbie) Simo of Appleton, Frank (Lori) Simo of Warren, MI, Theresa (Ron) Bedal of Barrington, IL, Mary Beth Simo of Kenosha, Joe (Mary) Simo of Appleton, and Anne (Rick) Reinders of Whitefish Bay; twelve grandchildren, Andrew, Timothy, Michael, Matthew (Jessica), Katie, Paul, Emily, Lauren, Julia, Jenna, Richard and Charlie; and two great-grandchildren, Wesley and Eleanor. He is further survived by his brother-in-law, Jim (Sharon) Johnson of Kenosha, and many other special family and lifelong friends.
He was preceded in death by his parents, wife, three brothers, Joseph, Paul and Emil Simo; and three sisters, Irene Housh, Helen Hugunin and Anne Simo.
The family would like to thank the staff at The Addison of Pleasant Prairie for the loving care given to Frank.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Friday, April 20th, at St. Mark’s Catholic Church at 11:00 a.m. Interment with Full Military Honors will follow at St. George Cemetery. Visitation will be held on Friday at the church from 10:00 a.m. until the time of the Mass. In lieu of flowers, memorials to a charity of one’s choice in Frank’s name would be appreciated by the family.
