Jérôme (Jerry) Anthony Solano

Jerome (Jerry) Anthony Solano, 74, passed away on December 9, 2021, surrounded by his beloved wife and children. He was born in Ault, Colorado, to Fred and Lillian Solano and raised by his grandmother, Mollie Trujillo. At the age of 10, he was welcomed into the house of Victor and Béatrice Roybal. He grew up in Pueblo, Colorado, and graduated from Centennial High School in 1966. He then joined the United States Marine Corps. He completed three periods of service in Viet Nam and was an extremely proud veteran. Jerry is survived by his 52 and a half year old wife, Diane; and their three children, Jerome Solano Jr., Stephanie (Roy) Sedberry and Christine Solano; 10 grandchildren, Samantha, Derek, Anissa, Allison, Mariah, Cheyann, Catalina, Maria, Andrew, Shawna; eight great-children, LaLaini, Alivia, Alies, Landon, Sophia, Thalia, Jamison and Jackson; siblings, Carmen (Syl) Arteaga, Edmond (Linda) Roybal, Sandra (Ron) Jimenez, Daniel (Peggy) Roybal and Frances (Dale) Albo; and lifelong friend (brother), Clifford (Vicki) Martinez. Jerry was the proud business owner of Air Zone Tec, an HVAC company for many years. During this time, he mentored and trained many young men. Jerry was a true example to all of them, teaching and guiding them to become providers to their families as well as family men. Her family has always been her main priority. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, camping and boating, all while instilling an eternal work ethic in his children. He will always be remembered for his ability to make anyone smile, no matter what happened earlier today. He was very proud to help those in need. He was always looking for a way to help the less fortunate. He would dress up as Santa Claus for the annual Chicano Biker Christmas Charity Party, delivering gifts to children while riding his Harley Davidson Trike. He had a strange way of bringing joy to everyone around him and had a signature dance that has become a tradition at weddings and family celebrations. He loved dancing to the song Wooly Bully. When it was time to put on a hat, he would jump on a chair and start dancing. The whole family (and strangers) would join us. Sgt. JA Solano will always be remembered and never forgotten.
