On behalf of the members of FOP Lodge 128, we send our sincere condolences, thoughts, and prayers to Officer Pete Simon, his family and friends.
While I did not know Officer Simon, several persons in our organization did. My wife also know Pete. Without a doubt, all have said Pete was a person who when you met him you instantly wanted a long friendship. Pete was also someone who was eager or take over a call for service so that officer could go back on patrol.

Pete was a great guy, he will be truly missed but not forgotten!
He will truely be missed,he always greeted me with a warm smile and a kind word passing through the APG gate. Recently he would crack a joke and enjoy giving me a hard time,always ending with a laugh. I will miss him passing me on my daily walking on APG. He always showed me respect,and I respected him and his position. I will remember him for his kindness and great sense of humor for myself and his job.
