Celebration Florida Tribute to Simon Sharp

Celebration Florida Tribute to Simon Sharp



Celebration Florida Tribute to Simon Sharp this week.  Since I wrote about the Girl Scouts in Celebration Florida I wanted to take time to write about a tribute to Simon Sharp.





A tribute to Simon Sharp Nov. 28 Weds. at 4pm at Founders Park on Celebration Ave. 




Simon Sharp a past resident of Celebration Florida was a creator of Celebration Florida’s Veterans Memorial for his Eagle Scout Service Project.


He was the senior patrol leader for troop 125 and two years ago started to raise $15,000 to build a veterans memorial at Founders Park in Celebration Florida. 


On the 4th of July he sold commemorative American Flag Pins and raised $7000.  The next month he was diagnosed with an aggressive Leukemia.


His scout troop carried on and raised $12,000 but the cost soared to $40,000.  Simon hoped for donations and really wanted to die an Eagle Scout.


His scout Master Joel Koustach knew time was running out and went to Simon who slid off his oxygen mask and said the oath.  On my honor…after he finished he managed a smile and became an Eagle Scout.

The next day Simon passed.  His tribute will be tomorro at Founders Park at 4pm.  If you would like to donate to the memorial  make checks payable to the Memorial Fund and mail to PO Box 470125, Celebration Florida 34747.


A great story written by Darryl Owens about Simon is in the Orlando Sentinel.  To learn more about the Boy Scouts in Celebration contact Joel Koustach Scoutmaster at 407-566-8220.  They meet 5 PM Sunday at Lakeside Park.
