Larry “Simo” Simonsen, 70, longtime resident of Crystal Lake, passed away unexpectedly but peacefully on October 28, 2023. He was born on October 9, 1953 in Elgin, IL to Folmer and Katherine Simonsen.
On Valentine’s Day in 1975, Larry married Pamela Koch in Crystal Lake. Together they celebrated 48 beautiful years and were blessed with a daughter, Erin. For over 20 years, Larry worked in the automotive collision and restoration industry until his retirement from Custom Classics Collision and Restoration on December 31, 2019.
Larry was an avid golfer, especially at Oak Grove Golf Course in Harvard. He greatly enjoyed race cars, whether it was driving, watching, or building them. One of Larry’s greatest joys was a good cheese and sausage pizza or a good racetrack hot dog.
Everywhere Larry went he always made a friend, whether it was people or dogs he was loved by all, particularly his grand-dogs, Diezel, Tawny and Riggs.
Larry is survived by his loving wife Pamela; his daughter, Erin (Gregg) Nagl; his brother, Jerry (Georgia) Simonsen; sister-in-law, Jean Simonsen and many loving nieces, nephews and friends.
He was preceded in death by his parents, his brothers, Folmer “Dale” (the late Noreen) Simonsen and Roger Simonsen.
Services will be held privately by the family. A celebration of Larry’s life will be held at a later date.
