The Reston community is saddened by the loss of Reston founder Robert E. Simon, who passed away this week at the age of 101. Hundreds of community members gathered at Lake Anne Plaza on Friday, September 25, 2015 to celebrate his memory. They lit candles along the waterfront, and sang “This Little Light of Mine” and “Amazing Grace.” It was a truly beautiful experience and a fitting tribute to man who inspired so many of us.
