Share post:

Solon L. Liberman, 100 years old, of Lake Worth, Florida passed away peacefully at his home in the presence of his children.

He was born on March 25, 1923 in New Jersey. During WWII, Solon enlisted in the US Army Air Corps and served in the South Pacific as a radio operator and air traffic controller.

He met the love of his life, Alma Steinhart, at Rutgers University. They settled in Bloomfield, Caldwell and finally Verona, where they raised their two daughters Roz and Judi. Solon spent the majority of his working life in the insurance industry eventually having his own brokerage.

Solon loved traveling and enjoying the company of his friends and was well known for his unique sense of humor. He also enjoyed his time acting with the Showcase Players Community Theatre and sailing. Solon and Alma began snow birding to Florida in 1979.

He was an avid tennis player and volunteered with Bethesda East Hospital, the Delray Beach Playhouse, Shine where he used his 30-plus years of experience in the insurance business to advise others about enrolling in Medicare and other programs, and the Soup Kitchen where he met his second wife Carol after Alma passed away in 1997.

Solon was predeceased by his two wives Alma (nee Steinhart) and Carol (nee Coranthal). He is survived by his daughters Roz Gibbs (Teddy Rockford) and Judi Liebert (Mark); his grandchildren Josh Liebert, Ben Liebert (Lauren Kadel) and Noah Gibbs; his great granddaughter Amelia Gibbs; and many nephews and nieces. Solon has left his body to medical science.

In lieu of flowers be kind to someone.
