Paul Simone

April 8, 1960 — December 4, 2021

NEW MIDDLETOWN- Paul T. Simone Jr. , 61, of New Middletown, OH passed away Saturday evening December 4, 2021 at his home.

He was born April 8, 1960 in Youngstown, a son of Paul T. and Shirley (Millhorn) Simone Sr.

Over the course of a more than 45 year career, Paul was responsible for the design and construction of hundreds of homes in the Poland and New Middletown area. He began his career working for his father at Simone Builders and partnered with both of his brothers, at different times, continuing his work. He had a reputation for being a master framing carpenter and an exceptional designer and draftsman.
As a young man, Paul studied the piano for more than a decade and he was a voracious reader, leaving behind a massive personal library of science fiction and mystery novels. Paul was regarded, by most who knew him, as one of the most intelligent people they had met. He was a lifelong Catholic and member of Holy Family Church in Poland, OH as well as the Knights of Columbus. Paul was a graduate of Poland Seminary High School, and attended Youngstown State University.
