Quentin was born March 28, 1974 and passed away Monday, January 29, 2024 at his home in St George, UT following a nine-year battle with pain and suffering. His passing leaves his family filled with sorrow but comforted to know he is at last pain free.
Quentin has been a friend to so many. It was easy for him because he was truly non-judgmental and only saw the best in people. He forgave easily and loved intensely. Among those he loved, and who survive him, are his parents Ronald John Solmonson and Michelle Solmonson, his sister, Melissa Brown (Joel Brown, Vernal UT) brothers, Drew Solmonson (Amber, Kailua-Kona, HI), Stewart Solmonson (Betsy, Bountiful, UT) and his 2 Nieces and 7 Nephews. He loved spending any time possible with them and they in turn loved him and always included him in their lives. His grandparents, Gene (deceased) and Karen Stewart, always had a special place in his life. To Quentin family was everything and he had close relationships with extended family as well as friends.
He was a handy guy that could do anything and figure out a solution to most mechanical issues. He had a keen eye for detail and sharp organizational skills which were valuable in his diverse work life. He worked as a Mortgage Loan Processor, an Electrician, and a Field Technician in the Oil Industry where he used those skills and made more friends.
Quentin usually split his time between 3 locations. He grew up in his young years in Vernal, Utah until his family moved to St George, Utah in the early 80’s where he graduated from Pine View High School. His move to Kona, Hawaii really cemented his love for all things ocean. His soul was happiest in the ocean-swimming, snorkeling and collecting beautiful shells of which he has incredible collections.
He loved anything that he could do outdoors. He got his pilot’s license and he was actively involved in Skydiving for many years. He loved the mountains, especially the mountains above Vernal, and did as much camping and hiking and swimming in the lakes as possible when he was in the Vernal area. St George provided the amazing red rock hiking he loved so much.
His gentle spirit and kindness to all, are the things that people might associate with Quentin but his quick intellect and witty way with words are the things that will make everyone smile when they remember him.
A celebration of life will be held Saturday, February 10, 2024 at 11 am at the Jensen Cemetery.
