Solomon "Solly" Amon

We are so saddened to hear of the loss of Sol “Solly” Amon on Sept. 28, 2021.

Known as "the Cod Father" and the "King of the Market", Solly took over Pure Food Fish from his father Jack Amon in 1956, and ran the business faithfully until his retirement in 2020. Read the obituary in the Seattle Times here and learn more about Pure Food Fish in the Washington Jewish Museum here.

Solomon is survived by his wife, Matilda, and daughters Eileen Kulman and Helene Behar. He is also survived by his grandchildren Carlee Hollenbeck (Doug), Isaac Behar, Solomon Behar, Austin Kulman, and Elyse Behar Cohanim (Mathias), as well as his great grandson Briggs Solomon Hollenbeck.
