WAKEFIELD — Mark H. Simons, 64, of Wakefield, peacefully entered into rest surrounded by his family on Saturday, October 5, 2019.

Beloved husband of Beth Simons. Devoted father of Craig Simons and his wife Stephanie of Austin, Texas, Stephanie Simons of Wakefield, William Davison and his wife Sarah of Waltham, Rebecca Bell and her husband James of Upper Saddle River, N.J., and Tim Davison and his wife Courtney of Waltham.

Absolutely adored Papa of Camila Simons, Landry and Lucas Bell. The loving brother of Debbie Goldstein. Dear son of Chester “Chet” Simons and partner Doris Flaum, and the late Joan (Friedland) Simons. Son-in-law of Susan and David Leibovitz. He also leaves behind many aunts, nieces, nephews, extended family and countless friends.

To know him was to love him. Mark’s greatest joy was bringing his family and friends together, especially in his backyard for pool days and barbecues. He was an avid Boston sports fan, especially of the six-time champion, New England Patriots, where he had season tickets for over 35 years. Mark selflessly gave his time to the communities he was a part of, including Wakefield youth sports and Temple Tiferet Shalom.
