Former 49ers wide receiver Freddie Solomon, a key figure in the franchise's first two Super Bowl wins who was known for his upbeat personality and post-career community service, died Monday at age 59 in Tampa, Fla., after dealing with liver and colon cancer for nine months.
Mr. Solomon had a distinguished playing career, first with the Dolphins (1975-77) and then with the 49ers (1978-85). He ranks fourth in franchise history in yards per reception (15.7) and tied for sixth with 43 touchdown catches. His six postseason touchdown receptions rank second to Jerry Rice.
"He was the consummate pro on the field, and the stats and the accomplishments speak for themselves," said former 49ers safety Tom Holmoe, the athletic director at BYU. "But now that's it's been all these years since we played, I don't think much about the stats and stuff. I think about the people.
"And I will always, always remember Freddie as one of those guys that kept us going. I love Freddie Solomon. He was a one-in-a-million guy."
Said former 49ers tight end Charle Young: "Football is what Freddie did and what we did, but that's just a small glimpse at who Freddie was. Freddie was a giving person. In some cases, Freddie cared about you more than some people cared about themselves."
Former 49ers President Carmen Policy said quarterback Joe Montana always appreciated how Mr. Solomon didn't come back to the huddle asking for Montana to throw the ball to him. Mr. Solomon also gracefully accepted a diminished role in 1985, his last season, when Rice was a rookie. On Monday, in a statement released through the team, Rice said Mr. Solomon taught him about "work ethic and professionalism."
"He was an amazing personality," Policy said. "He helped develop some of the great stars connected with the game and the 49ers. And he enjoyed doing whatever he could do to see them grow. Joe and Ronnie (Lott) and Dwight (Clark) and Jerry - all of them. They just revered him and loved him. He was everybody's favorite and that's because he was such a legitimate guy."
Mr. Solomon's NFL career was bookended by his accomplishments, on and off the field, in Tampa. A quarterback at the University of Tampa, he finished 12th in the Heisman Trophy voting as a senior on an obscure 6-5 team. He left college with 3,299 rushing yards, then first in NCAA history among quarterbacks.
After his playing days, he devoted himself to community service in Tampa. He worked with youths for 20 years through a program with the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office. He also teamed with former 49ers owner Eddie DeBartolo, a Tampa resident and close friend, on an annual Christmas celebration for foster children.
