Solomon, Ronald

Obituary

Ronald Ray Solomon , After a lengthy battle with Covid-19 that he fought with everything he had, Ronald Ray Solomon (age 78), slipped away peacefully with his wife and his three great-nieces, Cheyenne, Brittany, and Savannah by his side at Presbyterian hospital in Dallas on October 3, 2021.

Ron was born June 1, 1943, in Henderson, Nevada while his father was working on the Hoover Dam. He graduated from North Dallas High School in 1961. Attended Arlington State College in 1961 until 1964 before deciding to enlist in the Navy in 1965 where he worked as a flight engineer before retiring from the navy in 1992. He met his darling wife, Marie, on a blind date in 1971 before marrying her on November 4, 1978.

There is no doubt Ron lived a full life and had God watching him closely. He’s probably the only man who can say he survived a small plane crash, motorcycle accident, and survived after being left in the Gulf of Mexico while scuba diving, dog paddling for hours, until a fishing boat saw him and brought him to shore.

Ron had a love for Colorado, Conway Twitty & Elvis, His second amendment, flying, dirt bikes, sailing, snowmobiling, and everything in between as well as cars like his Oldsmobiles and his beloved 1997 Silverado Z71.

Ron is survived by his beloved wife, Marie, His nieces and nephews, his great-nieces, Brittany Gwin and her husband Justin of Kennedale, Tx. Savannah Belk and her Husband Tre of Farmers Branch, Tx. Cheyenne Gwin and her Fiancé Jacob of Farmers Branch, Tx and Payton and Morgan Porubsky of Temple, Tx. As well as great-great-nieces and nephews. He is preceded in Death with his loving parents Catherine and Elmer ‘Sol’ Solomon. His beloved German Shepherd, Boonie, and his favorite aunt and uncle, Fleta and Hugh Wilcox.

He will be missed beyond words and his legacy will live on through his wife and the great-nieces he raised in Dallas.

As Ron would say,

Be Careful out there… It’s a jungle.

    I will truly miss my Uncle Ron, he was a great guy and funny. He did a lot of fun things when I use to visit during the summer in Texas. I remember when he took my mom (Carol Warnick) and I downtown Dallas to show us his Dad’s bar, he drove right on the sidewalk. I thought it was fun, my mom found no humor in it. He was a great man. He will truly be missed. My husband and daughter fell in love with him when they met him for the first time. I am so happy they got to meet him. you are missed Uncle Ron, love always, Hannah, Mark, Isabella and Carol

"I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks."

"The unexpected passing of my husband was a very difficult and trying time for my boys and I. I had the good fortune of having Abel walk us thru this process. Working with him was such a weight off my shoulders. He was professional, so polite and helpful. The service was beautiful – never did I feel rushed or like just another customer. They gave me the time I needed and I appreciate that so much! Also Mr. Brooks took special care of my husband as he is a fellow mason. I would highly recommend working with Abel and North Dallas Funeral Home."

"Everyone at North Dallas Funeral Home was very professional, kind, and caring, in all steps of the process from the first phone call to the service held at their location.

"As soon as the call was made to Mr. Wayne Baxter all of my brothers final needs were taken care of. They walked me through what to expect the timeline and even dealt with the cemetery and the grave diggers. I was a hot mess due to my brothers sudden and unexpected passing. The experience was seamless and made it easy for my brother’s friends and family to say their last goodbyes. They even had the size to accommodate such a large group that showed up . The package deals that they offered were cost-effective and didn’t break my bank account. They included extras and accommodations that other funeral homes charged extra for. All the staff was amazing including Mr. Don Dodd . I can not thank them enough for all their help."

Dear John,

It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Tha you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you.

Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad.

Love, The Gillilands
