Jorge H Solis, Age: 74
Jun 20, 1946 - Dec 27, 2020

Jorge Humberto Solis, age 74, passed away peacefully at home December 27, 2020. He was preceded in death by his mother, Josefina Chacon Solis, his father, Benito Solis Rodrigues, and his step-brother, Jose Luis Fabela. 

Jorge was born in Tamaulipas, Mexico.  His mother and six brothers moved to Del Rio, Texas, when the youngest brothers were in elementary school. Jorge worked from a young age in various labor positions including migrant work in California.  Jorge performed seasonal labor in the California canaries and picked produce on the local farms.

 Jorge eventually secured a position with General Motors on the assembly line in Freemont, California, and worked there until the plant shutdown in 1983.  In that same year, Jorge and his family relocated to Kansas City, Missouri, where he continued his work at GM at the Fairfax plant until his retirement.  When he retired, he had accumulated 39 years of service with GM.

With fondness, we will all remember the many Sundays Jorge was in the backyard at the barbeque grilling for the whole family.  We will cherish the memory of his constant smile, his wonderful sense of humor and his dedication to his family.  He lovingly helped raise his two grandchildren, both of whom he adored.

Jorge is survived by his loving wife of 53 years, Leonor, sons Jorge Solis Jr., Michael Solis and his wife, Mary Solis, and grandchildren, Antonio and Christian Solis, and daughter, Maria Solis DeNoon and her husband, Paul DeNoon of Kansas City, Missouri.   In addition, Jorge is survived by his brothers and their spouses: Benito and Maria Dolores Solis of San Antonio, Texas, Francisco (Jorge’s twin brother) and Maria Antoinette Solis of El Mirage, Arizona, Juan Manuel and Maria Solis of McAllen, Texas, Jaime Arturo and Constance (Connie) Solis of Del Rio, Texas, and Juan Jesus and Linda Solis of Spring Branch, Texas. Also included is Jorge’s sister-in-law, Delores Fabela of Del Rio, Texas.

 Jorge will be lovingly remembered by his many nieces, nephews, extended family and dear friends.

I first met Jorge when I was just 16 years old and started dating Michael. He was so endearing in welcoming me to the family, so warm and gracious. He always made me laugh, always there when we needed him without even asking, and was a very loving grandfather. I will deeply miss him. Lots of love and prayers for the whole family.

My condolences to the Solis family. Jorge was like having another tio and for many of us that moved to KC from California, knowing Jorge and the Solis family brought a sense of comfort and familiarity to this new place we call home and for that I will always be grateful. Rest in peace Señor Solis.

“What’s the matter with what you want?” That’s what pop always ask me when I walked into a room where he was just sitting. I always thought it was something silly he said to make me laugh, it did. Usually, I never had an answer or sometimes I would just say something silly back. Now weeks after your passing I think about you more than ever. I think of your voice and your laugh. Your smile and how it was always a struggle to get one from you. I guess that’s why they made it so memorable for me. Your smile at me was a precious reward for a son trying to make his father happy. No, I was never disappointed in you or upset with you. I care and miss you more than ever this day and the days to follow. I thank you pop, for what you taught me in being a Son, a Husband, an Uncle, and a Father. With sadness in my heart, I see what has been released. I pray for you and promise that we will see each other again, and maybe this time I can let you know “What’s the matter with what you want?” For pop…
