Thomas Franklin “Simon” Chandler, age 68, went to be with the lord on February 2, 2021 at Jefferson Memorial Hospital. Simon, as most people knew him, loved his family and friends. He would give the shirt off his back, or lend a hand to anyone that needed it. He loved riding his motorcycle, and teaching his kids to ride. He was a hard worker and never missed a day of work until he got sick. On most weekends he would be with his kids and friends on the lake at Evergreen cove. He loved sitting under a good shade tree just watching and waving at people as they went by his house. He was preceded in death by son, Christopher Chandler; grandson, Jacob Wolfenbarger; parents, Jim and Grace Chandler; and siblings, Arlean Corbett, Maxine Hartman, Ronald Chandler, Donald Chandler, John Chandler, and Bobbie Turley.
