I remember Freddie from Sumter High School, he and I were in a few classes together, I graudated in 1970 and Freddie was always a gentleman a little quiet at times, but always nice and always having a kind word to say to everyone, and about people he knew in general. Thanks to Freddie I was nominated and won MISS HOMECOMING OF SUMTER HIGH SCHOOL in 1970. May God keep you safe and warm in His bosom, and God's Mansion is ready and waiting for you to enter. Always, Virginia Rich-Charrette. ( NEW YORK)

Oh what a great man you were and yet for all of your greatness you were so reachable and so humble. But that's what made you great because for you Freddie, the world was more about the have not's than the have's. You gave, I mean you gave it all to those young kids-always caring about another life, making sure they knew what is right from wrong and always out front leading. It's been years since we've spoken but I'll always remember those chats as moments that I call highlights in my life. I wish that I might have had one more talk, one more chat with you but my dear friend I am content with just simply having known the Freddie most people don't know. My life is fuller because of you and the examples you set for others to follow. Rest peacefully in the arms of the Lord, my friend. You fought the battle and won.

To Family & Friends, My deepest condolence. I had the privilege to meet Freddie, and what a great man. He even brought a signed picture, as which I have hanging in great pride. We are all blessed just to have him on the earth & now our Father In Heaven.
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spriritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ. Ephesians 1:3 kjv

I remember Freddie from Sumter. He was active in the youth group at Emmanuel Church where my mother was the advisor. We watched him play every Friday night at Sumter High School games. Later I was so proud that I "knew" an NFL player. May he rest in peace.

i played ball with Freddie & the Dolphins. He said after one of the games"I cant see no more"
He always was a heavy hitter.

Freddie and I lived in the same community in Sumter. He was always a very nice person. I have found memories of him 'learning' football by the older guys in the community such as Bar-Red, James, and all the others. Of course, they took credit for all his successes. May God comfort the Solomon family as they celebrate the life of an exemplar citizen and professional. I am so very proud of you!

To a true Friend...Freddie was an outstanding quarter back at UT and I had the pleasure of sitting in my office at the old gym talking to you about your future in Pro Football which we all knew was going to happen.
You passed on at such a young age but the Good Lord had the Grace to let us have you these few years. I remember asking you how you ran so fast and you said "You'd run too if you saw all of those big guys coming after you." You were great on the field and off and will be missed in Hillsborough County in the years to come.

My condolences to Dee and the rest of the Solomon family. Freddie touched so many lives on and off the football field. I will never forget when he ran a 99 yard quarterback sneak for a touch down against FAMU at Tampa Stadium in 1973. Freddie was the fastest player in the world during the 70's. To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. Rest in peace my friend.
