Andy Solomon passed quietly on December 5, 2012 following a prolonged battle with brain cancer. He leaves behind a loving wife, Monique, and two devoted daughters, Meg 14, and Tess 10.

Andy was a long time pillar of the Fresno community having grown up in Fresno where he attended Bullard High School and went on to Santa Clara University where he was their first baseman all four years. Following college, Andy returned to Fresno to complete a 25 year career in commercial real estate during which he made innumerable friends, supported community improvements, and was admired and respected by everyone who came in contact with him.

Andy, together with his family, fought against his illness for over five years. Andy's incredible strength and will to live resulted in him becoming one of the longest living survivors of full brain radiation treatment. We may all take some solace in the fact that Andy's participation in numerous ex- perimental cancer treatment programs may help to improve the chances for future patients to possibly survive this now incurable disease. During this time he also felt a strong calling to reach out to others in hope of helping them face their own personal challenges.

In addition to the young family he leaves behind, there is an extended and devoted family that will continue to morn his loss; his mother and father, Lew and Linda Solomon, of Fresno; three siblings, Jeff Solomon and his wife Carolyn of Tualatin, Oregon; Jim Solomon and his wife Melissa of Fresno; Susie Jones and her husband Tom of Sacramento; and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nephews and nieces.

Andy's great love of baseball continued to the very end and was exceeded only by his love for his family and faith in God.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at St. Anthony of Padua Church on Thursday, December 13, 2012 at 1:00 p.m.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests remembrances may be made to a college education fund created for his daughters. Checks should be payable to CollegeAmerica and sent to 680 West Shaw Avenue, Suite 202, Fresno, California 93704 Attn: Judy. The family would also like to remember the great dedication and care Andy received at both the University of California San Francisco, Helen Diller Family Cancer Center P.O. 45339 San Francisco, California 94145-0339 and Hinds Hospice 1616 West Shaw Avenue Fresno, California 93720.
