Obituary for Ruperto Solis

His ship has come in to carry him to the peaceful, boundless, paradise of the Lord?s home. The loving husband, brother, father and grandpa has shared his time on Earth with family and friends but has now been called to duty with Christ. Our dad was a gentle giant who silently lived the teachings of the Lord and imparted his generosity, selflessness, and humility with all who knew him. Ruperto ?Beto? Solis, 83, passed away peacefully and comforted by the love he gave and received for all who were graced by his friendship. A man of unsurpassed character and courage, he gave much of himself to make this a better place for all by serving our country in WWII with the US Navy, his community with the El Maida Shrine Temple Masons, his wife of 58 years, Julie Solis, children Norma Solis Acosta (Richard Acosta), Corinne Solis-Williamson (John Williamson), Richard Solis, Carmen Solis-Rodriguez (Victor Rodriguez), and his cherished grandsons, Benjamin and Vincent Gutierrez.
