Our deepest sympathy to Julia, family and friends of Cousin Ray. Ray, alike his father, brothers, and sons intensely enjoyed nature and the shooting sports. These are attributes inherited from his father, my Uncle Mike. One of Uncle Mike’s request, when he passed, was contributions be made to the NRA in lieu of flowers. It’s admiral that Ray, in this tradition, belonged to the local conservation club contributing to the environment and supporting the sports he loved. Ray’s one son even became a Forest Ranger further extending the family tradition. Ray also shared our love for family history; often, commenting on and contributing to, the family history. Our Grand-parents, Michael Salamon/Solomon and Mary [ Ivan ] Salamon/Solomon of Johnstown, PA were immigrants from Slovakia early in the last century. Ray & our Solomon linage can be traced back to our Great-Great-Grandparents: Joannes Salamon [ b. estimated: 1798: A Weaver ] and Elizabeth [ Novak ] Salamon [ b. 1803 ], of present day Slovakia. Our condolences and best wishes to Julia and family and to cousins Loretta, Sylvia, Bob, Mickey and their families. Judy & Frank Solomon Jr. Hollidaysburg, PA ……………………………………………………………………………………..
