Simonís Sub Counter


 1.  I sadly make the following announcement:

   For the last few years I have not been able to properly host my web site as desired due to cardiac health problems, which included surgery in 2004; and due to the 2004 hurricanes which caused serious damage to my home, the museum and nearly destroyed the Simon Lake Collection, which has now been placed back in storage. I presently have little time and access to the collection and my project, thus rendering the Simon Lake Project on hold.  I regret, I shall not be able to respond to requests of interest until my home, museum, collection and personal health are restored.        I shall try to maintain the shipsís store pages for those interested

   Thank you for your patronage and interest in Simon Lake, the real Father of the Modern Submarine

2. The last Mrs. Simon Lake, my mother, who goes by the name Celeste and who was diagnosed with a terminal illness early in 2008, passed away peacefully in her sleep early Sunday morning on May 17, 2009, just one week after Motherís Day and just 3 months shy of her 93rd birthday. It was my honor to be with my mother at the time of her passing. She was a great mom & fine lady.

   Pictured below is the last photo showing my brothers George, Rick, Peter & myself ( Jeff ) with my mother on Mothersí Day, May 10, 2009.
