Michael Frank Simone, 27 years, lost his two-year heroic battle with colon cancer on January 26, 2018. Michael attended Lady Field Elementary, graduated from St. Francis de Sales High School in 2009 and graduated from Bowling Green State University in 2014.
He was hired at Medical Staffing Options in Columbus Ohio, as a healthcare recruiter. His promotion in November to Team Leader was a reflection of the remarkable people he worked with and passion for his job. Michael loved the game of hockey. He played for many travel teams growing up. He enjoyed playing for St. Francis and was on the club team at Bowling Green. Michael was an avid sports fan, but especially loved Michigan State.
Michael brought joy to everyone he met. His sense of humor and strength will be missed the most.
Michael is survived by his parents, Frank and Carol Ann (Mourad) Simone; sister Stefanie Simone; grandparents, Robert and Margaret Mourad; Aunts and Uncles, Robert Mourad Jr. and Ann Marie (Hayes) Mourad, Ken and Suzanne (Mourad) Kuhn, Richard and Marianne (Simone) Robinson, Charles and Jeanne (Simone) Howey; 11 cousins, who he loved very much; his fiancé, Torie Ciccarone and many great friends.
He was preceded by his grandparents, Frank and Alba Simone. Michael will be laid to rest next to his Uncle, Thomas Mourad. They were two peas in a pod and enjoyed every moment together.
