Simeon N. Cheeks

Sunrise: October 18, 1947–Sunset: February 14, 2019

“He shall enter into peace: they shall rest in their beds, each one walking in his uprightness.” Isaiah 57:2

With heavy hearts and great sadness, the Cheeks family regrets to announce the peaceful passing of Simeon N. Cheeks: great father, brother, uncle, cousin and dear friend to so many. Simeon transitioned into the arms of the Lord while holding onto the hands of his family on February 14, 2019, at Gwinnett Medical Center, Lawrenceville, GA. 

Simeon’s fondness for telling jokes and sharing home remedies will forever live in our hearts.
Left to mourn his passing are his children; Demetrius, Miyesha, Derevious; sisters, Olly & Dolly; brother, Joey; a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives and friends.
