In Memory of Simon

“I feel you in the same wind that makes the leaves dance, in the same sun rays that nourish the flowers, in the same night air that feeds the campfire flames. I smile knowing you are present in every form you so dearly loved.”

– Scott Hoehne

These words were written by Scott, a PIR employee to honor Simon – an employee that we lost on January 17, 2022. PIR created a memorial plaque with a tie-dye theme as tie-dye was Simon’s shirt of choice. The plaque was placed by a sugar maple tree that we planted at our facility in Simon’s memory.


PIR held a small memorial gathering attended by Simon’s parents and PIR employees. Simon’s parents placed the memorial plaque on a pole near Simon’s tree. The function was followed by a luncheon in our breakroom that was decorated in a tie-dye theme.


Rest in Peace Simon – you will be missed.
