Russel Wayne Simon
Simon, Russel Wayne 10/10/1929 - 2/8/2020 Cincinnati, OH Russel Wayne Simon Born in Fort Wayne, Indiana to Etta Mooney Simon and Galen R. Simon. Wayne graduated from Ft.

He spent many happy retirement years as a resident of Naples, FL where he lived at the Wilderness Country Club.
