Jack Solomon

Our beloved husband, father, uncle and friend, Jack Solomon, born July 4, 1926 in Los Angeles, California , died unexpectedly Sunday, December 28, 2008 in Prescott, Arizona.  He was the last of six siblings.   Jack is survived by his loving wife Natalie Krol Solomon of sixty-one years, son Isaiah Solomon(of Denver, Colorado), son david solomon and wife Alanna (of Prescott), great-granddaughter Paisley Wohl (of Prescott), and many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his granddaughter Soleil Solomon.   Jack graduated from Roosevelt High School, Los Angeles, California, in 1944 and immediately enlisted in the US Army Air Corps. A fortunate broken leg after boot camp prevented him from being shipped out to the Battle of the Bulge at the end of 1944; instead, he spent his war years in the Pacific supporting our military advance towards Japan.   Jack was ?green? before it became vogue! He spent his working career in a recycling business established by his family in the late 1920s situated in downtown Los Angeles. Jack spent non-working time developing his skills as an amateur photographer and an exceptional, detailed woodworking craftsman. Capturing the specialty of each moment, his photography earned him a  number of awards as well as displaying his keen eye, while his accomplished woodworking skills provided many of his relatives with one-of-a-kind dining tables plus many other creative wooden pieces.   Jack retired from business in 1986 and relocated with Natalie to Prescott in 1990. The community welcomed them with open arms. During the nearly two decades of an activity filled life in Prescott, Jack became involved at different times with various community organizations, reading and discussion groups, and with many a newly acquired friend . One of his greatest joys came from the four years he spent at Coyote Springs Elementary School, in Prescott Valley, attentively listening and correcting  first and second graders hone their reading skills.   An accomplished dancer, Jack could be seen every Thursday night sashaying around the dance floor with Natalie at the Pine Cone Supper Club. He was generous to a fault; he loved dotting over his wife; and he will be dearly missed by his adoring family!   In Lieu of flowers family suggests donations in Jack?s name to The Desert Hills Bank for Educational Scholarship Funds.
