Lloyd and I were H.S. sports team mates and I'll say a prayer for him.

I don't even know where to begin. The Solarz family were my next door neighbors. i spent so much time there along with my other (1 of 10 siblings) he may have forgot how many kids he actually had.
He always greeted me with a smile and I will always cherish all the memories the Wayne Clan had (many in their backyard or ours).
This saddens me beyond words. He is now in God's hands.
Sending my love, Julie Poster Hebda

My deepest heartfelt sympathies to the Solarz family on the passing of Lloyd or Mr. Solarz as I knew him. He a great man with an excellent sense of humor and always treated me better than he probably should have. I feel very blessed to have had him in my life growing up with Mark and Susan plus getting know him as a person when I got older. May he rest in peace in the arms of the lord.
