Former El Paso County Commissioner Miguel "Mickey" Solis was laid to rest today. Services were held this morning at St. Joseph's Church.
The 68 year-old Solis was well-known for his political career and public service. He was also married to former NewsChannel Nine anchor and reporter Felipa Solis for 20 years.
He was killed earlier this month in Colorado when an RV crashed head-on into the car the two of them were riding in.
She was injured in the crash, breaking her collarbone, a rib and her left elbow.
Felipa has set up a scholarship in Miguel's memory through the El Paso Community Foundation. To donate, log on to EPCF.org.
