In memory of
Alexander Solarov
June 12, 1950 – February 25, 2023
It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of Alexander Solarov. He was predeceased by his brothers Georgi "Gogo" and Solbodan "Dancho" Solarov. His daughters Irina and Natasha Solarova, his brother Zdravko "Lale," and many of his nieces, nephews, and friends will miss him. He leaves behind his cherished grandson, Jacob, the son of Irina. They travelled to many different destinations and made many memories together. Alex taught Jacob how to play chess and swim; he certainly made quite an impression on his grandson. Alex was also very proud of his brand-new granddaughter, Madeline, daughter of Natasha. His adorable granddaughter impressed him immensely. Madeline was a constant source of joy and delight for him. He often spoke of her to others. Alex was also an intellectual who loved history and drew inspiration from knowledge of global events. He had many interests and was a person who lived his life independently and by his own rules. Special thanks go to Dr. Derek Desa, the compassionate nurses and staff at Kensington Hospice, and the graciousness, support, and kindness of Ken McManus, who was with Alex until the very end. The funeral will be held on March 25 at 10 a.m. at 625 Birchmount Rd, Scarborough, On. The burial will then proceed to Thornton Cemetery, 1200 Thornton Road N, Oshawa.

To my beloved uncle, who will always hold a special place in my heart for his courage to leave home and start a new life in a foreign land. His life in the new world was marked by exceptional difficulty, but he never gave up. Despite the hardships he faced, he managed to raise two daughters and was blessed with two wonderful grandchildren.

I will always cherish the memory of the last time we met, more than three years ago. As we sat down for dinner, we reminisced about the past and discussed the people and events that had shaped our lives. My uncle was particularly passionate about hearing updates on our family back in his old home. He had a gift for storytelling, and I was captivated by the wisdom and life lessons woven into his words.

My heart is heavy with sadness that my uncle is no longer with us, but I take comfort in knowing that he is now free from the pain and injustice of this world. His life was a testament to his resilience and determination, and his legacy will live on through the memories and stories we share.

Rest in peace, dear uncle, and thank you for the wisdom and love you brought into my life.
