February 17, 1998 – February 9, 2023
Gregory Eugene Salt departed this troubled world at the early age of 24. He was being cared for in the CVICU at University of Utah hospital. He was surrounded by his immediate family on February 9th when he finished this chapter of his story. Gregory was battling medical complications for a few years.
Gregory was born in Orem, Utah on February 17, 1998. He was the oldest of the surprise twins that were delivered that day. His parent’s names are Elroy Gene Salt and Mimi Salt. Gregory grew up in Provo and lived there most of his life. He always stayed close to family and cared for them. He lived with his oldest sister for a few years and helped care for her children. Family was the most important thing to him. He attended family events including: baptisms, birthdays, graduations, blessings, concerts, and musical/play performances. Gregory was always willing to help a neighbor, friend, and strangers. He was loving, compassionate, and gentle. He was funny and polite into the end of his journey here on Earth.
Gregory worked at the local Fresh Market in the Meat Department. He loved his job and the people he met there. Some of his closest friends came from his time there. He talked about many of his coworkers like family. He worked hard during his fight with his medical problems. He picked up shifts and helped cover when others were sick or needed time off for their family events. Gregory loved his job so much that he learned about knives and butchering during his time off.
Gregory was a member of the LDS church and grew up with many church members becoming his family as well. Gregory took time to reach out to many people and check on them. Gregory loved so many people in the ward and became an honorary child or took in other children into his own family. Many of the children in the ward were also part of the Boys Scout group that he participated in. He went on many camp outs and scout camps. He served as a scout leader with his twin brother for some time. They were leaders for the cub scouts and taught them all of their favorite things. He rarely had time to spend with friends but he had a handful of close people that he spent his time with. He and his youngest sister were part of a group that played D&D together.
Gregory is survived by his parents: Elroy and Mimi, his siblings: Tanika, P.J., Lane, and Baily. Gregory is also survived by his nieces and nephews: Sami Hasting, Ella Hasting, Teagyn Susaeta, Zeiven Hasting, Asher Susaeta, Xyon Hasting, Kenjemin Powers, Sage Salt, and Reyla Powers.
Gregory’s service will be on Wednesday, February 15, 2023 at 10 AM. His services will be at his home ward located in Provo at 1066 West 200 North. His burial will be at the City of Orem Cemetery located at 1520 N 800 E, Orem, UT 84097 following his services.
