Solly was not only a great individual, but there will never be anyone capable of filling his shoes. He was filled with compassion. I am sure every day as he woke to go do his duties at work he had a huge smile on his face, no one has ever loved what they did as much as Solly. My condolences to his wife and family

RIP Hall he was a funny and kind person. A funny Hall moment of mine is the day I was getting married, he was in the middle of the ceremony and in the background we hear sirens, he leans over and says "that sounds like a sign to me, are you sure you want me to finish?" Then started to laugh..

We will always remember his unforgetable laugh. Those bus trips to Atlantic City were a blast. He was always kind to us and the young ones growing up. He had a way of telling the youngsters to respect the law and made sure he got his point across before any trouble occurred. Thank you Solly for being you. You will be missed.

Hall Solomon was my neighbor for years.
He was always there if you needed him.
I also had the pleasure to go to Atlantic City with him one time when I was younger. What a fabulous time we had on the bus!
Godspeed Solly.
You are already missed.
Thank you for keeping Mifflinburg the town that I call my home town. I may have left for a few years, but I just came back with a husband and a baby.

My condolences to all family and friends.
Solly was a pillar of the Mifflinburg community for many, many years and he was a friend to all. He was always genuine, fun loving, and a fair man. He earned my admiration and respect from a very young age. I’ve always cherished the fishing trips to Canada with our group of guys, their sons, and eventually Brandy. We had some fun times over the years. Solly will be missed by many but not forgotten. Rest In Peace my friend.

He was the best great grandfather i could ever ask for. He was my best friend, and we did everything together. I still have the license plate frame that he made us years ago that says "There goes Pap and Bon" and it will forever remain on the back of every vehicle i ever own in my entire life. He will always be with me in my heart. Every time i would leave the house to go hunting, fishing, check my traps, go to work, or anything at all, he would always say "give em hell!" Well pap, i will always give em hell, and i will forever give em hell just for you... im so glad that you were able to pass without any pain or suffering. You will forever be in my heart and i will never forget everything y...ou taught me. I love you and i miss you so much, and i will see you soon... In the meantime, give em hell!Read more

Family through and through. So many memories with you. They forgot how many years you played Santa (even though Bunnie recognized your nose) or how you used to tell all the kids your wife made the dot candies. You will be greatly missed.

Solly was a great community leader that will surely be missed by everybody. As a Legion member Solly was Home Association President and Board Chairman, his Knowledge from years of experience were second to none. Solly may not have realized it but I learned so much from him about Legion business, thank- you Solly. Yes Terry those Atlantic City bus trips were awesome.

God speed Solly! You were one of the last, best that Mifflinburg had to offer! Don't know that I ever met a man, other than my father, who was more genuine in his approach to people.
