He will live forever through his books and will be never forgotten through his many "classics" that he created for the memorized deck.

This is very sad, but he brought so much, and inspired so many of us,
that he will be remembered forever.

Sorry to hear. The guy was a genius.

I am really shocked... far too early. Simon was always one of my very few "heroes"! I adored him more than Juan Tamariz (sorry...). His "Simply Simon" which I bought more than 20 years ago (and have read minimum 3 times from cover to cover) is still one of my favorite 5 books I have in my quite huge library. What a loss. R.I.P., Simon.

I have just started studying memorized deck work through Simons books and DVDs. They are brilliant!
R.I.P. Simon.

The last sentence of your article is wonderful.
It says so much about how hundreds of magicians "literally" will "remember" him.

I only wish I had known him. Now my time to know him through his works will begin. I really appreciate the video.
Great to see him and his wife performing. Wow.
