Alf Olav Solli Obituary
February 11, 1922 - March 4, 2017 Olav passed peacefully in his home in Eagle Rock, California, with his family. Olav was 95 years young. He was born on a farm, Myglestol, in Kvaas, Norway. Olav travelled to America in 1948 with $105, an 8th grade education, his wife Ruth, and his son. He later moved to California with his family where he started Solli Construction, and successfully built custom homes for many high profile clients over the next 60 years. Olav was unequivocally always the life of the party. He was a lover of life, dancing, his friends and most importantly his family. He is survived by his children Arne Bernhard Solli of Connecticut, and Anne Elise Wenzel of California. Five grandchildren: Kristina Veilleux (Andre), Kevin Solli (Dana), Jacquelyn, Joseph, and Erika Wenzel. Also his great-grandchildren: Dylan Wenzel, Gary Remedi, Molli and Katie Veilleux, and Lyla and Ryan Solli. The family would like to graciously thank Leonor Sanchez for her 15 years of unconditional love and care to both Olav and his wife Ruth. Visitation services will be held Sunday, March 12, 3-6pm followed by formal services Monday, March 13 at 9am at Rose Hills Memorial Park - Sky Rose Chapel. A reception will follow Monday afternoon. All are welcome to attend and celebrate Olav.
