Mike was born on January 17, 1956, in Norfolk, VA to Richard and Mary Carolyn Simons.
Mike was a Navy veteran. He worked as a mechanic and truck driver. His hobbies included bowling, shooting, gun collecting, collecting his own style of monogrammed caps, collecting Scooby Doo memorabilia, and loving on his puppies. His favorite puppies were Great Danes and Greyhounds. He was quick with a joke, or a comeback to a sarcastic remark.
Survivors include his wife, Karamae Simons, of Amarillo, TX; children, Michael Simons, of Amarillo, TX, Gina and Ricky Arnaud, of Picayune, MS, and Brandy Simons, of Amarillo, TX; adopted daughters, Kimberly Samora and April Seleska; grandchildren, Jordin and Little Ricky Arnaud, of Picayune, MS, and Ethan Palmer, of Amarillo, TX; and many special friends – too many to list them all. He considered everyone his friend unless you crossed him.
The family suggests that memorials are sent to your favorite charity in Mike’s name.
