Dr. Michael J Solomon passed away July 23, 2020, at the age of 76. He was born Nov. 18, 1943, in Brooklyn, N.Y, the younger of twin boys. Michael was a kind-hearted, compassionate, loving son, sibling, husband and father who was the personification of humility, a true gem. He was a highly skilled surgeon and a talented soccer player who enjoyed the symphony, being outdoors, supporting the state of Israel and spending time with his family and very close friends.
Michael earned his medical degree at the Ohio College of Podiatric Medicine in Cleveland, where he also met his wife. They moved to Atlanta in 1971, where the couple worked together in independent practice through 2018.
Michael served as team physician for professional soccer clubs Atlanta Chiefs, Georgia Generals and Atlanta Attack.
He is survived by his loving wife of 51 years Alona; sons Simy (Sarah) and Zevi; siblings George Solomon (Ilene) and Sharyn Kaufman (Charles); and grandsons Jordan and Micah.
