Deepest sympathy extended to all the family. A good man who was a loving husband, father and grandfather to Donna and the girls. A hard working farmer, always had a smile and friendly to everyone. Rest In Peace Ronnie!. We are going to contribute to SPPS church for some masses.

My sister and I have many happy memories of Ronnie and the Solich family. We enjoyed visiting his family in our youth--riding ponies and other fun activities. My son Mark and his family enjoyed a fish fry Ronnie and his wife hosted for us when we visited the farm several years ago. Rest in peace, cousin.
