Thomas Allen Solomon

A loving father, devoted husband, brother and proud grandfather, Thomas Allen Solomon died at his home in the morning hours of April 12, 2021, after a long struggle with cancer. Tommy was a 1969 graduate of Natchitoches High School and went on to earn a bachelor’s degree in general studies with a concentration in business from Northwestern State University. He first worked for Whitney National Bank overseeing computer printouts of accounts and statements for local banks. From there he began a 17-year long career in law enforcement working for the Natchitoches Parish Sheriffs Office. He later accepted a position with the City of Natchitoches Utility Department as the IT Director. A man of integrity and honesty, he was adamant about doing everything the proper way. He enjoyed listening to all types of music and attending live theatre. In his spare time, he enjoyed fishing, hunting, and traveling with family and friends. Tommy was preceded in death by his father, Allen Joe Solomon; mother, Gertrude Scott Solomon; step mother, Gloria Lee Solomon; step brother, Forrest McFarland; and a niece, Linda Willett Freeman.
