A funeral Mass was to be celebrated at Holy Cross Church on Thursday morning, Dec. 6, for Karl Soliman, 12, the son of Shawn and Amy Soliman. Father Peter Pilon, pastor, was to be principal celebrant of the 10:30 a.m. Mass.
Karl, a multi-sport athlete as well as a trombone player, reportedly fell to the floor near the end of Holy Cross’ consolation championship game against St. Michael the Archangel School of Streator. He was transported to Rush University Medical Center, Chicago, where he died later in the day.
. @Cavs and @NBA fans, help me in sending prayers and love to the Soliman family and the Holy Cross community after this tragic loss. Karl, 7th grader and NBA fan, died while playing the sport he loved in his tournament this weekend. Our hearts go out to his family at this time. pic.twitter.com/3yy3IbYLdF— Sam Dekker (@dekker) December 5, 2018
