Ranger Exes Memorial - RHS Class of 1998

Heather Solomon HEATHER DANIELLE C DE BACA SOLOMON, 39, passed away Feb. 4, 2019, battling to the end in an inspiringly, difficult clash with metastatic breast cancer. She spent her last days surrounded by those closest to her and never faltered in her steadfastness to keep fighting and to #fcancer. The daughter of Becky & Mike C de Baca, she was born Nov. 5, 1979 and raised in Ranger, TX. She attended Ranger High School in the Class of 1998. In Dec. of 2014, she married the true love of her life, Dan Solomon. While their time together was short, it was filled with happy memories, smiles and laughter, & a deep admiration for one another. A true "Texas girl" in her core, she loved country music, cold beer, dirt roads and spending time with those who mattered to her. Her spirit was infectious and she would selflessly join her friends and family to help them overcome their own personal struggles, even at her own expense. Most recently she worked as an estimator for Timber Blind Metro Shade in McKinney but will be remembered by many for her years serving Irish Nachos at J. Gilligan's in Arlington. She is survived by her husband Dan and their fur-baby Murray; parents Becky and Mike; two brothers: Michael C de Baca and his fiance Robbie Smith, and Matt Kennedy and his partner Sabeen Uddin; two sister-in-laws: Kate Mize and her husband Mark and children, and Jess Butler and her husband Pat and son; parent-in-laws Cindy and Mike Solomon; numerous cousins including Monica Stanley; several aunts and uncles from the C de Baca and Kopietz families as well as Linda White Miller (RHS-1967); and an incredible amount of friends, supporters and fellow cancer fighters. She was preceded in death by her grand- mother Dorothy Henson.
