I met Simon only once,at his son's wedding. He was very intelligent, smart and opinionated man. Unfortunately I can't say I knew him well, but I knew his son Anatoly and considered him my friend. I've learned many important life principles from him, and it is a shame that after Simon's death on 9/11/01 our contacts stopped. I think that sons usually take after their fathers, so many good qualities I percieved in Anatoly, some of them he inherited from Simon.

May Simon rest in peace and may his death be avenged.

How do you squeeze a life into a few lines?  And especially his life?  In many ways, Simon V. Weiser was a Renaissance man; he cared and learned about so many things.  His portrait in the New York Times was entitled Medieval History Buff, but it did not do justice to his multi-faceted life.  History was one of his interests, and it was not limited to “medieval” history.  Simon was an inventor who himself, practically without assistance, patented a dozen of his inventions.  He would have patented many, many more.  Curiously, after his death on 9/11 I found in his notes an interesting idea for equipping airliners with a system to disable hijackers on the ground.  Simon was an electrical engineer by trade and a skillful metal worker in his spare time.  At home, he had a well-equipped workshop where he built his inventions.  He was a thinker and a philosopher.  He was a man of principle and logic in the Ayn Randian sense.  He was my father.

Share your feelings and memories of grief and sadness concerning the 9-11-2001 attack, or of positive memories.  If you knew this person, help us to build a small 'bio' of the person and share with us something about his/her life:

  • what kind of person he/she was, 
  • what nice points you remember about him/her, 
  • what kind of relationship you had with him/her, 
  • what you two perhaps did together, 
  • what he/she meant to you, 
  • or other things about him/her might be especially encouraging for other people.

This web site is intended solely as a means of allowing all of us to express our grief and sympathy in behalf of the people who lost their lives, and also our love and compassion towards those who lost loved ones and friends in the 9/11/01 tragedy. The site is strictly for memorial mentions of those who passed away in the tragedy, not of other people who have passed away.

Our hearts are very touched with concern in behalf of those people, and it is to them that we dedicate this web site. It is not our intent to venture into the realms of WHO should face judgement, to take responsibility for those terrible events, because we have no way of knowing for sure who all might fall into that category. Therefore, any letters or notes written passing judgment upon any person or group will not be published on this site. We do NOT want this site to be a base for expressions of hatred, but only for expressions of LOVE!

9-11Heroes.us is a personal effort, not a business, nor is the site dedicated to any specific person or persons. We will not post negative comments. Moreover, 9-11Heroes.us reserves the right to choose which comments to post and also to edit the comments for spelling, punctuation, grammar, or edit comments that are unkind or offensive in some manner. We are maintaining this site with our own money and time. We try to keep the advertisements to a minimum and we try to make them as unobtrusive as possible. The revenue goes back to maintaining this site.

Thank you for your understanding in these matters.
