Simon P. Roper, age 67, of Edgewater, FL passed away peacefully in his home on April 20, 2021.  Born to Diana and Ronald Roper in Worksop, England,  Simon came to the United States in 1976 and worked as a General Contractor for over 36 years in the Edgewater and New Smyrna Beach area.  He was wellknown and maintained a reputation of Integrity and Honesty throughout his career as a builder, often building homes for repeat customers and their family members.  With his warm, friendly and outgoing nature he made many friends and maintained those friendships for many years.  Simon was a lifelong “student” of life and enjoyed many interests that included Reading, Holistic Medicine, varied genres of music, woodworking, gardening, travel, Nascar and Formula One.  Also, he attended the Rolex 24 Hour Race every year.  Simon attended Edgewater Alliance Church and of all the varied and amazing experiences that he approached exuberantly, he counted becoming a Follower of Christ as the most important experience of his life.  He is preceded in death by his parents.  Survived by his soulmate and devoted wife, Lauren, of 24 years, Sons, Deven (Clara) Roper of South Daytona and Joshua (Lori) Roper of Edgewater, Grandchildren, Collin and Rose, Brothers, Jason (Elizabeth) Roper and Paul Roper and Sister, Nina Roper.  Lauren would like to thank Tracey and Melissa, RN’s of Halifax Hospice whose kindness and compassion were so appreciated as they assisted his care at home.   A Private Memorial Service will be held at a later date.

    My husband and I have known Simon’s wife since she was a teenager as she was best friends with our daughter. When we met Simon, we were immediately impressed. Simon was a great guy with a great sense of humor and loved to tell the most interesting stories. He was so much fun to be around. He was a hard worker and a devoted husband. He will be greatly missed.

    Simon was a friend of ours for many years. We admired his work ethic. He was honest, hard working, dependable and skilled. He was good
    at everything he did. We recommended him to a neighbor for building a deck on their home. They were very pleased and told us they have
    received many compliments on that deck!
    He was a good family man and especially devoted to his wife, Lauren. He had a child-like quality that we connected with. We would talk, tell stories and laugh together. Being with him would always lift our spirits.
    What we loved most about Simon was that he had a light in him. Even when he was suffering with Cancer, he called and asked how we
    were doing. I would like to quote Elisabeth Kubler Ross because this describes the essence of Simon Roper.
    "People are like stained glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when darkness sets in, their true beauty is
    revealed only if there is a light from within." We will miss Simon all the days of our lives.

    We enjoyed his wit, his humor, and his never-ending optimism.
    He will be greatly missed. May his memory be eternal.
