In memory of

Aiden Thomas Solon

of North Platte, South Dakota, died on Saturday, October 7, 2017 at his home in North Platte at the age of 9

Aiden Thomas Solon, 9, of North Platte, entered the gates of Heaven on Saturday, October 7, 2017. He passed away at home while surrounded by family and friends.

Aiden was born May 7, 2008 to Sage and Tammy (Halley) Solon of North Platte. Aiden was a brave young boy who was diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma (bone cancer) in January, 2016. His journey with cancer included several types of treatment and surgery.

Aiden touched many lives with his positive attitude, wit, and love. He liked to spend time with his brother, buddies, and family whether it was camping, playing his X-box, playing baseball, or amazing an audience with magic tricks. Aiden loved to laugh and entertain others with jokes and games like “Would You Rather?” Aiden had an army, Aiden’s Army, people of all ages from all over the country, who bonded in love and prayer. They uplifted and supported him throughout his journey. Aiden was his grandpa’s pal; he and Marv loved to hang out together. The family dog, Theodore, brought new licks, and a best-buddy relationship to Aiden’s life.

Survivors include his loving parents, Sage and Tammy Solon, and protective older brother Andrew. Grandparents Marvin and Beverly Halley, North Platte, NE; Carol Solon, Kadoka, SD, and a Great Grandmother Emma Jacobs, Martin, SD. Aunts and uncles include Ron and Carol Halley, Overton NE; Rick and Kandy Halley, Apple Valley, MN; Patrick and Heather Solon, Kadoka, SD; and numerous cousins.

He is preceded in death by Great Grandparents Leland Jacobs; Francis and Clara Solon; Gerald and Lucett Halley; and a Grandfather John Solon.

Visitation will be on Friday, October 13th from 12:00 – 8:00 pm at Carpenter Memorial Chapel, with family receiving guests from 5 pm – 8 pm.

Services will be Saturday, October 14th at 1:30 pm at the North Platte Berean Church with Rev. Jon Stone officiating.

  • My heart goes out to the Solon family and friends of Aiden in your time of sorrow. I know Aiden has left you with many precious memories from his 9 way too short years with you all. When death robs us of someone we love very much, it causes much sadness and grief. Jesus with the help of Jehovah (Psalms 83:18) God promises the only one who does not lie (Titus1:2) that we will see Aiden and our loved ones again by means of a resurrection (Acts 24:15, John 5:28, 29). I hope the Solon family will find some comfort and strength in Jesus promise of the earthly resurrection. Our loving heavenly Father, "Jehovah (Psalm 83:18) is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit." (Psalm 34:18) Isaiah 33:24 guarantees us: "And no resident will say "I am sick," ever again. Revelations 21: 4 says: "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore." The Solon family is in my prayers and I offer my heartfelt condolences.
