My father, Paul Richard Simons passed away from presumed heart failure in Asuncion, Paraguay this past Easter weekend, on 3/30/2018. A uniquely intelligent writer, traveler, idealist, and fire-breathing anarchist, my dad will be missed by so many.
Paul was a complex person who was loved by his friends and family, and the dozens of communities he gave voice to through his writings and adventures as a journalist. Paul was a soul searcher to the end, a fearless adventurer, a rebel, a lover, a father to myself, Hannah, Max, Tristian, and Jack. He was a brother, a cousin, an uncle, a son. Paul's death was very sudden and unexpected, he left very few worldly possessions behind. Because he was far from home when he died, there will be a substantial cost to bring his remains home. It will take the effort and contribution of his community to properly lay him to rest and give his friends and family the opportunity to mourn his loss.
This fundraiser is for all who knew and loved Paul, and anyone who wants to help his community in this difficult time. Thank you for your love and support.
Sincerely, Paul's oldest daughter,
