Major George Michael Solomon, Jr., 85, passed away on October 5, 2020 in Naples, FL after a decline in health.

Enlisting in the Army next, George earned the Bronze Star for his bravery and injuries sustained in Vietnam.
George was a well-educated man who earned multiple degrees as his career progressed. As a graduate of the Officers Candidate School,  George deployed all over the world, achieving honors as he went.  

George is survived by his wife, Stacia (Eraklis); daughters, Susan and Angela; son, Paul; sister, Naomi; and many grandchildren. George was predeceased by his son, Michael and brothers, James and Anthony.
