Life Story for Matthew A. "Budd" Solano

It is with great sadness that the family of Matthew A. Solano (known to friends as “Budd”) announces his passing on Friday, August 3rd at age 76.

Matthew was born on February 22, 1942 in Mount Vernon, New York to Matthew and Catherine Solano. He attended Bishop Loughlin High School and graduated St. John’s Law School in 1966. Matthew began his career with a law firm in Hartsdale, NY before opening a private practice in Carmel where he remained for over two decades. Upon his retirement from law, Budd fulfilled a lifelong dream of opening a bed and breakfast in Killington, VT, traveling North America on two wheels, continuing his passion for skiing and spending time with his family and friends.

Matthew served on the boards of numerous organizations, including the Knights of Columbus Council 6318, the Lions Club and the New York Bar Association.

Matthew will be forever remembered by his former wife, Patricia, and his children, Matthew (Jennifer), Christine (Eugene), and Mark. Matthew will also be lovingly remembered by his four grandchildren Jennifer, Nicolette, Lara, and Matthew and by his brother Edward and his sisters, MaryAnn and Katherine and his nephews Kenya and Peter and niece Alice. Matthew was predeceased by his parents Matthew A. Solano Sr. and Catherine (McCauley) Solano.
