Tate Parker Green passed away unexpectedly after an accident in his home on September 1, 2022. He was surrounded by his loving parents, Michael and Shonell Green and his sweet brother, Dylan Green as he returned home to his loving Heavenly Father’s arms. He was greeted in Heaven by many loved ones who have passed before him, including his Grandpa Terry Green and his two beloved dogs Meeka and Lulu.\n\nTate was born on October 9, 2007 in Sandy, Utah. He was a beam of light, was quick-witted, and very driven to reach his goals. He attended Welby Elementary and was currently enrolled as a ninth-grade student at The American Academy of Innovation. Tate had a love of learning and was an academically successful student. He was fluent in Spanish and had been in the dual immersion program at Welby Elementary. Tate enjoyed reading various subjects including military history and biographies. He was also a talented artist and you could often find him drawing in his sketch book. He learned to play the ukulele at a young age and he had a beautiful singing voice. \n\nTate was very focused and was a passionate teenage boy, especially when it involved martial arts and friends. He had many friends in the school he attended, in his neighborhood, and in his church youth group. He loved all types of cars, skateboarding, video games, and spending time with his family. He was active in the teacher’s quorum in his ward as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and he recently began taking Seminary classes. Tate loved taking vacations with his family and we will treasure the many memories we made together at multiple locations including Disney World, Disneyland, and Maui. Tate began taking martial art classes at the age of four and it became his greatest hobby. He recently obtained his 1st Dan (degree) black belt in Tae Kwan Do as a student at Amy’s Martial Arts. Tate connected well with others and this ability enabled him to instruct younger students as he pursued his black belt requirements. The Amy’s Martial Arts community was his second family. \n\nTate especially loved his big brother Dylan and his Mom and Dad. We will miss his tight hugs, his happy demeanor, and his spot-on impersonations of both famous people and family members. We are also very thankful that Tate was able to be an organ donor and to help give the gift of life to others in need.\n\nTate is survived by his parents, Michael and Shonell Green, brother Dylan Green, maternal grandparents Craig and Marsha Rowley and paternal grandmother Sharon Green; many aunts, uncles, and cousins that will miss him. He is preceded in death by his paternal grandfather, Terry Green and his dogs Lulu and Meeka. \n\nA public visitation will be held from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Wednesday, September 7th at the Jenkins-Soffe Mortuary South Valley, 1007 West South Jordan Parkway, South Jordan, UT. 84095.
