Leonard "Jack" Solomon

Leonard “Jack” Solomon, 84, Loving husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother and friend passed away Monday, July 10, 2023 surrounded by loved ones. Jack was born on December 17, 1938 in Maple Ridge, Michigan to the late Glen and Sophie (Podleski) Solomon. He proudly served in the United States Army, worked at Saginaw Steering Gear for almost 40 years and loved spending time with his family and friends.

Jack enjoyed watching Nascar and was the greatest “designated driver” on countless Nascar trips with his boys and close friends. Hunting was another passion of Jacks. In fact, he was unarguably the best deer hunter of all time! Jack also loved drawing pictures, sculpting and worshiping the Lord at St. John’s Lutheran Church.

Jack leaves behind his wife of 61 years, Carol (Alberts) Solomon (he called “his girl”); a little sister Bonnie (Bill) Flathau, three sons Leonard (Lisa) Solomon, Terry (Wendy) Solomon and Randy (Sabrina) Solomon, Eight grandchildren: Nolan, Jackson, Madison (Erik) Dehne, Dillon (Gabrielle), Savannah, Kaylie (Dayne) Kopfer, Summer and Carson Solomon and one great-grandchild, Leo. Jack was predeceased by his special brothers Mel, Glen “Junior” and Jim. They were his best friends enjoying lots of laughs, coffee at Big Boy and hunting trips.
