We are deeply proud to support The Solomon Verdes Memorial Scholarship. “Tay” (short for tatay, which means father), as he was called, was a gentle and generous man who loved his family and was a leader in his community. We know that he would be delighted to help pass the torch of learning to a new generation of Asian American youth.

Born in Manila, Philippines, Solomon was retired from the City of Virginia Beach, Building Maintenance. He was an active member of Eastside Church of Christ in Virginia Beach. 

Left to cherish his memory are his three daughters, Rebecca Gambito, Ruth Angoluan and Noemi Rodgers; son, David Verdes; nine grandchildren: Sarah, Christine, Nephtali, Miriam, Joshua, Jana, Jordan, Joey and Destin.
