Raymond A. Simon-Vermot, age 72, died peacefully with his family by his side at his home in Norwalk, CT on Sunday, March 14th, 2021, after a long and courageous battle with leukemia.

Raymond was born in Switzerland in 1948, the son of René and Madeleine Simon-Vermot. He grew up on a small farm, one of 8 siblings, before his adventurous spirit took him on travels around the world, where he learned to speak five languages and made countless friends along the way.

He met the love of his life, Barbara, in Davos, Switzerland, and they married in 1977. They embarked on many adventures together, eventually settling in the US to raise their three children.

In his professional life, he began as a banking apprentice as a teenager and went on to have a long and successful career at UBS that spanned over 50 years and across numerous positions, including Head of UBS Private Bank Americas. He was highly respected by his clients and colleagues alike.

Raymond had a zest for life and unrelenting energy. His positive outlook and sense of humor spread joy to all those around him. He was a devoted husband and family man, who adored his grandsons and cherished the time he was able to spend with them.

He was an avid skier who shared his love for the sport with his family, as well as a passionate gardener and nature-lover. More recently, he became a prolific bread baker and amateur beekeeper.

Raymond will be greatly missed and is survived by his wife Barbara, his children Olivier (and wife Sara), Carole (and husband Spencer) and Marc (and wife Theresa), and his seven beloved grandsons.

Due to pandemic restrictions, a private service will be held for his immediate family. In lieu of flowers, donations in Raymond’s name can be made to Yale New Haven Smilow Cancer Hospital (www.givetoynhh.org/closertofree) or Be the Match (www.bethematch.org).

En 1967/68, j'ai fait la connaissance et bien côtoyé Raymond lorsque je résidais à Davos.
Comme lui j'étais natif des Montagnes Neuchâteloises et, à ce titre, nous avions une lié une excellente relation d'amitié.
Puis nos chemins professionnels et amicaux se sont séparés, mais régulièrement je recevais des nouvelles de Barbara e Raymond via Catherine et François.
Je garde de Raymond le souvenir d'un super copain plein d'entrain toujours prêt à rendre service. A tous ses proches j'adresse mes plus sincères condoléances et leur souhaite bon courage pour surmonter ces pénibles moments de cruelle séparation.

Hello Barbara , merci beaucoup de tout le travail effectué pour que l'on puisse suivre la messe et la nécrologie sur Raymond. C'était très émouvant et tellement important pour nous qui habitons si loin. On t'embrasse très fort, bon courage. René Mado

Ray was a great colleague and friend. Through good times and challenging ones, he always maintained an upbeat and optimistic outlook. He worked hard but always made time to share great stories about his adventures and his treasured family, of whom he was obviously incredibly proud. Ray will be greatly missed, and I send my sincerest condolences to his family.

Ray was a great leader and a person who I always looked up to. He was kind and professional and respected everyone no matter their rank. I worked with him when I started at Swiss Bank Corporation and then at UBS. May his soul rest in peace. My deepest condolence to the family. Shoma Das (UBS Private Bank and FS employee)
