On Saturday, May 28, 2011, the first anniversary of his accidental
death, Jonathon Scott "Jon" Simeone's zest for life and
riding was commemorated. The ATV park located off Lawrence Road

on his motorcycle and later died at Boston General Hospital.
Governor John Lynch was one of the speakers. Nearly 100 people attended
