Obituary Condolences

John C. Solomon, 91, went home to be with the Lord Thursday, Jan. 3, 2008. John of Berkeley Ill was the beloved husband of the late Eileen M. (nee Fick); loving father of Ruth Economos and husband George, and William A. Solomon and wife Leanne; proud grandfather of George W. and wife Jessica, John M. Blomquist and wife Laura, and William E.; and dear brother of the late Elaine McCarthy and Arthur Solomon.
John served with the Army in the South Pacific during World War II, and retired after 10 years as a fireman in the Berkeley Fire Department.
Here in Alamogordo, from 1976 to 2006, he and Eileen were avid bridge players. John was a great cook, painter and pretty much John-of-all-trades, exhibited as late as 20 years ago when he was up on the church roof helping repair it.
Funeral services were held Monday in Berkeley followed by a private interment. His family agreed that memorials will be appreciated to Westminster Presbyterian Church were John was deacon emeritus.
