James J.J. Simko II

James "J.J." Simko II, beloved local Lorain tattoo artist, passed away unexpectedly on February 4, 2022, at the age of 31. J.J. was a kind, loving person with an amazing personality. He always wore a smile and loved his daughters above all else. He had a great love for baseball, basketball and softball in his youth and loved wrestling with his nieces/nephews. JJ put a lot of passion into his tattoos and drawings. He had a great sense of humor; his contagious smile and laughter will be missed by all who knew him. He is survived by his mother, Audrey (Paula) Kidd and step-father Robert Hart; his father, James Simko; his cherished daughters, Alisia and Nichole Simko; and his beloved siblings, Renee M. Simko (Adam), Crystal M. Simko, Brandon L. Connell (Bridgette) and Kyle M. Connell (Heather); along with many, many cousins, aunts, uncles, and other family and friends. He is preceded in death by the love of his life and the mother of his children, Tiffany Hobbs; his beloved grandparents, Elmer and Patricia Kidd, John and Bionella Simko; his uncle David Kidd; and niece Gracelynn Connell.

James John Fuggin Simko.....
If it weren't for your SACRIFICES and for your Courage as a young man (Hell, you were a child too fr!) , I'm not sure Kyle or Myself would have turned out to be the Men we Have Grown to Become. You literally did some grown ass shit when other shit was hectic af around us, You Made Sure we had The Means as well as the Fortitude to Keep Pushing Daily. Crazy part is that Without! Flinching! You Took the Role you NEVER Asked For & Damn Sure did Not Really NEED! Regardless of Whatever or Whatever, While you Were not only Showing Us How to Swim with Anchors Attached at Our Ankles, You were also ALWAYS Teaching Yourself and Learning TO ADAPT on The Fly and Overcome .... I Always Noticed & Admired That.... All those Things people saw at the time as shit we did just because we were fucking off as some"bad kids"... We Were Just Getting Through it Without Getting Got!!!
You Got Sent Away for The Very 1st Time Because We Stole a Blue&Red Huffy Bicycle so That You Could Teach ME! How To Ride a Bike, And then... YOU took That On the Chin for All 3 of us. And thats just 1 example of who you ACTUALLY are! IDGAF What a Single Soul Says in Regards to Who They Thought you Were or What you Did or Whatever Tf Ever Else..

We Will Always Be Brothers..
You Will ALWAYS be My Brother!
Enjoy Your Long awaited Freedom, Watch over Our Children and Watch Over All of us Too, man.
I Love You Dude.
Rest Easy.
I'll Miss You More than You Can Fathom Dude.
