Obituary for \r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t Gregory A Greer\n\n\r\n\t\t\t\tGregory Allen Greer, 55, passed away Saturday evening, October 1, 2016. \n\nGreg was a loving husband, father, brother, son, uncle, and friend to all who knew him. He was born on May 30, 1961, in Long Beach, California, to James Earl and Kathleen Mae Greer (Carrithers). \n\nGreg grew up in Davison, Michigan, where his childhood was spent with countless hours playing sports and fishing the local streams and lakes. He achieved the rank of Eagle Scout, and participated as a youth leader in church programs. The oldest of five children, Greg was full of energy and led by example—a skill that he carried throughout his life. He graduated from Davison High School in 1979. He attended the University of Michigan, and Brigham Young University.\n\nGreg was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and served as a missionary in the Albuquerque, New Mexico Mission, and in numerous church callings and assignments in his local wards.\n\nGreg married Suzette Otto in the Salt Lake City temple January 20, 1995. Together they raised 7 children. Greg was passionate about his family, loved Suzette dearly, and together they always made certain that each child had their full support in the pursuit of education, sports, music, and other talents. He coached their teams and attended every game. He enjoyed traveling as a family, and summers were filled with long vacations together to a variety of locations, including reunions with the Otto clan at the cabin in Wisconsin, and individual trips with each son to fish remote locations in Canada or to attend a major sporting event. He was fond of board games, and the opportunity they gave for hours of fun and laughter while surrounded by his children. Greg was always a devoted son, never missing the opportunity to help his parents and siblings where needed—always without being asked.\n\nIf Greg felt he lacked a natural artistic talent, he would put in the hours to develop the skill, whether it was photography, painting landscapes, or baking the world’s best apple pie.\n\nGreg was successful in business, first as an owner of Atherton Mortgage for twenty-five years, where he enjoyed great success helping thousands of families obtain financing for their home. His company merged with Citywide Home Loans in 2010, and he worked there until his passing. He worked hard, and was determined to provide for his family, both spiritually and temporally.\n\nGreg is survived by his wife, Suzette Otto Greer, his children in order, sons Casey (Kristin), Mikey (Julie), Spencer (Janis), and Samuel, his daughters Sadie and Alison, and his son Wilson Gregory Greer; one granddaughter, Maraykah Greer; his four siblings, Mark Greer (Petrea), Dennene Craven (Rick), Cheryl Aiken (Derrin), and Nancy Parker (Darrell); his parents James and Kathleen Greer; his brothers-in-law Jeff Otto (Joni), Paul Otto (Amy) and Richard Otto (Page); his sister-in-law Jeanel Stanley (Bruce); his father-and mother-in-law, Samuel and Gloria Otto; and numerous nieces and nephews, cousins, uncles and aunts, all of whom he was close to and loved dearly.\n\nGreg left behind a legacy of love through service, honesty in business, and dedicated friendship through word and deed. His top priority was always to his loving wife and children. He will be deeply missed.\n\nFamily and friends are invited to the viewings and service. A funeral service will be held Saturday, October 8, 2016 at 11:00 a.m. at the Canyon View Stake Center, 575 East, 800 North, in Orem.
