Eugene "Gene" P. Solge, Jr., age 70, of Wilmington Delaware passed away on Saturday January 7, 2017.

Gene grew up in Fairfax, Delaware. He attended St. Mary Magdalen Grade School, graduated from Brandywine High school, and then enlisted in the Army National Guard.

Gene's greatest loves were his two granddaughters, Meghan and Hannah, who both brought much joy and laughter to his life. Gene was a huge Philadelphia sports fan and had countless hobbies and collections. He was devoted to his two dogs, Murphy and Molly.

Gene is survived by his son, Gene Solge, III (Michele); granddaughters, Meghan and Hannah; his sister, Pam Cherrix (Wayne); and niece Heather Rew. He was predeceased by his Loving wife of nearly 50 years, Betty Solge; two infant sons, Christopher Nicholas and Michael David; his father Eugene P Solge, Sr., and his mother Florence Hindsley.
