Rimson Solomon was a longtime resident of Headland, son of the late Olin Carey Solomon and Mary Dozier Solomon. He graduated in 1958 from Headland High School and graduated in 1962 from the University of Alabama. Rimson was self-employed as the owner and operator of the Solomon Insurance Agency in Dothan. He was a member of Headland United Methodist Church where he was active in many church offices and activities over the years. He was also an associate member of the United Methodist Church in the Highlands, Highlands, North Carolina, where he served on the board of trustees. Rimson was a former member of the Dothan Rotary Club and the Camp Ascca Board of Directors in Jackson Gap, AL. He was a member of the board of directors of HNB First in Headland. Rimson loved his vacation home in Highlands, NC, and the Alabama Crimson Tide football team.
Rimson loved all of God’s creation. As an avid turkey hunter, when he witnessed the exquisite beauty of a sunrise, he was always in awe of such a miraculous site. Rimson felt close to God and blessed beyond measure to experience such glory. He often referred to these times as a time of worship.
He was a generous man, who always thought of the needs of others. Rimson would selflessly give to help someone in need. Rimson will be remembered by many for his acts of kindness and his helping hand. Rimson loved his family beyond measure. There was a life of love, joy, jokes, tears and devotion. There is no way to express the depth of our loss of husband, father and grandfather, brother and uncle. Rimson was a friend to many who will feel this loss with his family. Our grief is keen but our joy is greater, for Rimson left this life with peaceful and joyful anticipation of his last journey, as he took the hands of the angels he saw in his room and met Jesus.
