Freddie Solomon was one of a kind. I remember when some of the Miami Dophins, Larry Little and those guys would call him "Casper". The name of the friendly ghost. Oh, how Freddie laughed. He had a great sense of humor and then went out and kick butt on the field. Those were the great days with Freddie in Miami. Thanks for the memories. Now, go get the true crown where love, peace and joy will last forever with the KING!
To the family, we trust God will take care of you until you see Freddie again.

Freddie Solomon is gone but not forgotten. I first met Fred in 1972 when Tampa and Kent State played in the Tangerine Bowl in Orlando, Kent alumni and football supporters stayed at the same hotel with the Tampa team and it was really an awesome time. It was at that time that I met John Matuzak, as he and Freddie played together at Tampa. Freddie kidded me about John during that week. Needless to say, Tampa beat us. So goes the game of football. As his football career moved ahead, Freddie was always gracious amd friendly, and took the time to sign autographs for kids and talk to fans.

Rest in peace Freddie. Go to the great football field of white and enjoy another game, with those who are waiting for you. Your family will miss you but will remember your courage, your love of life, your love of kids, and your commitment to living life to the fullest - to the end. Your presence was a gift in our lives.

May the white light of peace and the love of angels be with your family, the teams, the community, the kids and those who lives you touched.

Deepest sympathy is sent to the Solomon family. I remember Freddie when he was the star quarterback of the University of Tampa football team. Tampa Stadium was small, and UT was as well--everyone knew everyone. I was the youngest cheerleader of the squad always rooting for the Solomon-Wakefield connections. Freddie was a genuinely kind person. You knew just by meeting him that Freddie would go places and make a difference in the world. He had that special and remarkable gift.

Freddie, you brought such joy to the Faithful here in California. I remember you bringing such fun and dignity and humor to the team. Thank you for all you did in this world, for walking your path with Grace and Dignity. Eternal Rest grant unto him, O Lord, and may perpetual light shine upon him. Amen.

Dee I know how you feel, please know that you'll always have a friend here in Tampa. Freddie, you are now at the feet of Jesus, you have seen His beautiful face! Till we meet again...

I would like to express my deepest condolences to the family of Freddie Solomon, one of the greatest and most humble men I have ever known. I remember Freddie jogging through the streets of Sumter, while stopping by our family's funeral home and my grandfathers house to talk and say hello while he was in town. Freddie will be greatly missed as God has summoned another "Angel" to join his flock.

I was one of Freddie's early coaches at Lincoln High School. It was evident at an early age, he was a talented athlete. We talked of his needs to be prepared academically to have some choices when he graduated. I left to go to Graduate School and my career took a turn.I kept up with his career and last saw him during the week of the College All Star Game and we talked as we walked around Evanston, Illinois. It was evident that his "greatness" exceeded his football prowess. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family.
