Matthew “Mattie” Ryan del Solar passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on August 7, 2017 at the age of 31. Mattie was born on November 5, 1985 in Gilroy, CA to Mario and Deborah del Solar. He has lived in Modesto and most recently Turlock for the past 23 years.
Born with a disability, Mattie didn’t let that hold back his potential to make a lasting and loving impression on his family and everyone he enjoyed a relationship with. Mattie was always curious, high-spirited, and eager to share his love of music with those around him.
Mattie leaves behind his parents, Mario and Deborah del Solar of Manteca and his brothers, Alex del Solar (Karie) of Los Angeles, CA, and Sean del Solar of Oceanside, CA. Arrangements have been entrusted to Deegan Ripon Memorial Chapel. A private family service will be held at a later date. In lieu of gifts or flowers, please consider donations in Mattie’s memory to the Autistic Self Advocacy Network (ASAN).
