Gregory Sam Soter\nJuly 17, 1945 - August 15, 2023\nThe Servant of God, Gregory Sam Soter, departed this life on August 15, 2023. He was born on July 17, 1945 to Sam F. and Eva Sargetis Soter in Salt Lake City, Utah. He was raised with his sister, Mary, in Holladay, Utah and spent many summers and vacations in Craig, Colorado, loving being on the ranch and with horses. He graduated from Rowland Hall/St. Mark’s School in 1963. He earned his Bachelor's degree in Business Management from the University of Utah in 1971, proudly serving in the Utah Army National Guard. \n\nGreg was a man who always seemed to be at play while at work. His career as a Real Estate Agent, Broker, Appraiser and General Contractor spanned many years. Greg was always quick with a joke and a hardy laugh, never passing up an opportunity to bring new friends into his world. Greg enjoyed the simple things in life like spending time with friends or family over black coffee, a rare steak, a round of golf, or watching Chiefs games. In these moments, and in life in general, Greg was optimistic, entertaining, and great company! For these reasons, and many more, Greg will be forever missed and never forgotten. \n\nGreg is survived by his loving wife, Renee Codina Soter & stepson, Anthony Kay; children: Tiffany (Paul) Papageorge; Sam Gregory (Maria) Soter, Elleney Soter; sister, Mary Simos; grandchildren: Demetri, Timothy & Arianna Papageorge; Theadora & Aurelia Soter; and stepchildren: Matthew & Marc Gaddis.
