Solomon TROPPER Obituary
TROPPER, Solomon Solomon Tropper died of natural causes on August 30, 2017 at the age of 97. Sol was born in Vienna, Austria on December 9, 1919 to Markus and Cecelia Tropper and emigrated to the US through Ellis Island at age three. He was the youngest of six children and was the last of his generation. Sol attended Brooklyn College where he spotted his future wife Pearl Kessler. Pearl and Sol were married May 4, 1942 and later moved to Birmingham, Alabama in Pearl's words "the best decision they ever made." Sol and Pearl made lifelong friends in Birmingham through a televised great books discussion program in the 1950s. Sol was also very active in civic theatre where he played roles ranging from Marcus Lycus to Thomas Cromwell. He was always passionate about opera and was listening to Elektra in his last moments. Sol was preceded in death by his beloved wife of 69 years, Pearl Tropper, of blessed memory. Sol is survived by his sons, daughters-in-law and grandchildren: Richard; Joshua and Jeanne and their daughters Sarah and Rachel; and Peter and Sandra Tropper.
