Allan Joseph Serovy, 91, of Solon, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, Nov. 9, 2016, in his home. Funeral Mass was held Monday, Nov. 14, at St. Mary Catholic Church in Solon with Fr. Tim Sheedy presiding. Burial followed at Sts. Peter and Paul Cemetery, near Solon. Visitation was held Sunday, Nov. 13, at St. Mary Catholic Church.

Allan was born Nov. 30, 1924, in Mount Vernon, the son of Frank and Mary (Kleineck) Serovy. He graduated from Solon High School. Allan was united in marriage to Pearl Marie Carlson on April 19, 1949, at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Vinton. He farmed nearly his whole life in the Solon area. He worked at the Iowa City Liquor Store and managed the Mount Vernon Liquor Store for many years. He loved music and had a nice singing voice. He played drums with five area bands, starting with Kenny Hofer. He served on the board of Sts. Peter and Paul Historical Foundation and worked many hours getting it on the National Register of Historical Places. He loved having coffee with his friends at Sutliff and enjoyed celebrating the 4th of July with fireworks and roasting a hog. Fishing, traveling to Branson and spending time with his family were special times.
Allan is survived by his wife Pearl; children Lawrence (Judy) Serovy and Carol (Andrew) Fields, both of Solon; five grandchildren Andrew (Lisa) Serovy, Angela Burke, Joshua (Angie) Serovy, Quinn Fields and Elissa Fields; five great-grandchildren Madison, Mallory, Zach, Logan, Slaten; and a daughter-in-law Terry Serovy, of Iowa City.
