Vernard Grimes Solomon was involved in a one-car accident on September 11, 2018 and died in Shreveport, Louisiana on September 14, 2018.


Vernard was the second-eldest of three children and  was born November 28, 1943 to Harold and Joanna Grimes Solomon.  He attended public schools in Marshall and was a 1962 graduate of Marshall High School, getting his undergraduate degree from the University of Texas at Austin and his law degree in 1969 from South Texas school of law.
