Aiden loved to laugh and entertain others with jokes and games like “Would You Rather?” 
Aiden had an army, Aiden’s Army, people of all ages from all over the country, who bonded in love and prayer. They uplifted and supported him throughout his journey. Aiden was his grandpa’s pal; he and Marv loved to hang out together. The family dog, Theodore, brought new licks and a best-buddy relationship to Aiden’s life.
Survivors include his loving parents, Sage and Tammy Solon, and protective older brother, Andrew, North Platte; grandparents, Marvin and Beverly Halley, North Platte, Carol Solon, Kadoka, and a great-grandmother, Emma Jacobs, Martin; aunts and uncles, Ron and Carol Halley, Overton, Neb., Rick and Kandy Halley, Apple Valley, Minn., Patrick and Heather Solon, Kadoka; and numerous cousins.
