Simon Eugene Dawson

September 11, 1956 ~ September 1, 2022 (age 65)



Mr. Simon Eugene Dawson, age 65, of Hazlehurst, died Thursday, September 01, 2022, at Memorial Hospital in Jacksonville Fl.


Mr. Dawson was born September 11, 1956, in Jeff Davis County.

Simon Eugene Dawson was the youngest son of the late Will and Mae Dawson.  He was a dedicated and faithful member of Oakland Baptist Church.  He dearly loved his children.  His greatest joy in life was being a “Pa” to his grandchildren and great-granddaughter. He was an inspiration to everyone that met him.  He was a hardworking and very strong will person.  He has battled with an unknown disease since the late 1980s that resulted in him losing his limbs in 1998.  He has always been determined to continue to live life to the fullest. He never complained or give up no matter the circumstances.  After a long battle with this disease over the years, his body was tired of fighting and he went to be with his Heavenly Father.  He will be missed greatly by his family and friends.


Survivors include his son, Mathew Eugene Dawson of Virginia; daughter, Sumer Suzanna Perkins of Panama; grandchildren, Reanna Perkins, Eyan Perkins, Noah Perkins, Gabby Dawson, and Elijah Dawson; great-granddaughter, Bonnie May Stewart;  three sisters and brothers-in-law, Ellen and Randall Miller of Chatsworth, Gail and Tommy Hogg of Dalton, and Janice and Cliff Litke of Hazlehurst; brother and sister-in-law, Boyce and Melba Dawson of Douglas; several nieces and nephews also survive.
