The Foundation of Dixie Regional Medical Center salutes grateful patient and donor Robert Simonsen for joining courage and philanthropy to make these first-in-Utah LSVT ®LOUD and LSVT ®BIG Workshops possible.


Founder and leader of a highly successful real estate company, avid equestrian and outdoorsman, dedicated father to 10 children and 28 grandchildren ... all the ingredients of an active life well lived by a man whose mantra, even in the face of great adversity, has always been “never give up” and “always give back.” Such is the life of Mr. Robert Simonsen. Some years ago, his business activities led him to establish a family-owned real estate company known as Simpar (Simonsen Partners) Associates, LLC that invested mostly in Utah property, including a home and small farm in Washington County.


Of his lovely wife, Alice, Robert says she is a wonderful partner in life, a devoted and committed caregiver. She enjoys with him the “golden years” of retirement while wintering in the mild climate of Utah’s Dixie. Not so long ago, however, Robert’s retirement years seemed anything but golden. It started with his handwriting. Though once a master of calligraphy, he began noticing about five years ago that his script became ever smaller and more slanted. He also found he couldn’t turn over in bed and began experiencing balance problems. At the time, these seemed like random symptoms.
