Owen Thomas Sollner

July 16, 1997 ~ February 27, 2022 (age 24)


On February 27, 2022, at the age of 24, Owen Thomas Sollner lost his life in a tragic house fire.  His dad, risking his own life, entered the burning house, found Owen and carried him out; and for that we are forever grateful.

Owen was born the third of four children of John and Leanne Sollner.  He was baptized and confirmed at the Zion Lutheran Church and attended elementary school in both Plumas and Gladstone, graduating from William Morton Collegiate.  

Owen was a very active young man.  He had a love for the outdoors, especially hunting and fishing with his family and cousin Terry.  Owen was always busy with something, whether he was ripping things apart and rebuilding them, or trying to find another type of bird to add to his farmyard collection.  He would do anything to help his mom: cooking, gardening, renovations, pretty much anything she asked. 

Owen and his big brother Mark recently purchased their own farmland and, with their dad, established their farming career. 

Along with being a great son, and brother, Owen was an amazing uncle and will forever be looked up to and remembered by his nieces and nephew.  He also shared a very close relationship with his many cousins.  

Owen had a special bond with all of his friends.  He loved hockey, playing with Gladstone and MacGregor from the time he was 4 years old until 17.  He started playing again with the Plumas Chiefs and Glenella, on occasion.   He enjoyed hanging out and having a beverage or two after games.  

Owen had the biggest heart, a great sense of humour, and a mischievous grin that will never be forgotten.  He always knew the right thing to say to make anyone laugh.  Get-togethers will not be the same without him.  

Left to mourn are his Parents John and Leanne, brother Mark and wife Allyssa, Ava and Luke (niece and nephew), Sister Amanda and Cody Scora and Everly (niece), Brother Pryce and Julia Butterfield, Grandmother Ida MacDonald, Aunts and Uncles Susan and Gary Salmon (Wyatt, Samantha & James, Emma & Landon, and Sara) Cindy and Derek Sholdice (Taylor and Fallon), Trena and Lawrence Mitchler (Emmalee, Matthew, Mylee, and Kaytee), Gordie and Terri Hall (Danny and Megan), Cousins: Mackenzie & Cheyenne, Megan, Hannah, and Lindsay Sollner and his Special Dog Cinnamon.  

Predeceased by his Grandparents Robert and Linda Hall and Edgar Sollner.  

In closing, adapted from a famous children's book:


We'll love you forever.  We'll miss you always.

Forever and ever, our baby you'll be 

Love, Mom and Dad
