James Lee Solano, 51, passed away on November 8, 2021. He was a resident of Colorado Springs for six years and was formerly a resident of Arvada, CO.  He was a proud, life-long native of Colorado and worked for the United States Mint in Denver as a die setter for 21 years.

James (Jimmy) was born on February 6, 1970 to James J. Solano and Jocelyn (Croxton) Hostetter.  He is survived by his two sons, James and Alec; his parents, Jim (Shelly) and Jocelyn; brother, Emiliano (Vanessa); niece, Leila; nephew, Emiliano; his loving partner in crime, Pauline; his fur babies, Honey and Peanut; as well as numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and dear friends.

Jimmy was very fond of sports and had a natural talent for baseball, football, and golf.  He loved to bowl and shoot pool and enjoyed watching football, boxing, and horseracing. He had an infectious smile and an outrageous laugh. He lived life with a “go hard or go home” attitude and had a great respect for humor and living his life his own way.  He loved all types of music and livened up the room with his unforgettable dance moves.

A Memorial Service is pending at this time.
