Gregory Richard Barton
American Fork, Utah
Gregory Richard Barton passed away Easter Morning, March 27, 2016 in Provo, Utah.
He was born March 22, 1977 in Tooele, Utah. He was the youngest of six children born to Elmo Kay and Carol Barlow Barton.
He went to High School in St. George, Utah before moving to American Fork, Utah. After graduating from American Fork High School, Greg joined the Utah Army National Guard’s Military Intelligence Battalion. He spent the next two years in Monterey, CA training at the Defense Language Institute Foreign Language Center, DLIFLC, and becoming proficient in Mandarin Chinese. He later graduated with his bachelor degree from University of Phoenix.
On June 29, 2002 Greg was married to Janet Palmer in American Fork. Their marriage was later solemnized in the Manti, Utah Temple on October 22, 2005. They were blessed with 9 beautiful children, including 2 sets of twins.
Greg had a beautiful gift to love all of those whom he came in contact with. He’d bend over backwards not only to make you feel comfortable, but to recognize your inner beauty and self-worth. His unique ability to make you smile or double you over with laughter, (whether by something he said, or simply the animated look on his face) will truly be missed. He worked very hard to leave the world a better place than he found it.
He was a devoted father and loving husband who continually tried to better himself to that end. He will leave a legacy with his children through the amazing impact he had in their lives; teaching and guiding them. They, along with so many of us, will forever feel his influence as we journey through this life.
Greg, you made a difference. Thank you for being a part of our lives, and for always being willing to share the best of who you were.

Heinz and Eva had two children, one which passed at birth and Sonja, (Spencer Nishimoto) two grandchildren, Brian and Jamie (Jacob Hofheins) and 4 great grandchildren, Tyson, Brecklyn, Logan and Grayson.
Their almost 66 years of marriage were very eventful, beginning by having to flee their home in Freiberg, which was then behind the Iron Curtain.
During their time in Frankfurt, Heinz had the home teaching assignment to the then young Dieter Uchtdorf and his family. As he heard of President Uchtdorf’s assignment in the First Presidency, he was so thrilled and quickly sent him a congratulatory email.
After about three years, he and his family came to America. This was a large undertaking for a couple that spoke no English and had no family there. They received their American citizenship which was a proud day for them. And he was very patriotic to his new country and actively participated in many political events. He served several years as the PTA President at the school of his daughter, Sonja. It was happy time for them as they became grandparent and later great grandparents
Heinz has served in many church capacities such as councilor in the Fairmont, MN LDS branch presidency, many years as ward financial clerk and Sunday School presidency in Frankfurt as well as Highland and in various stake assignments. He has always been an active member in the Church and worked in the Provo Temple baptistry and Mount Timpanogos Temple.
He loved listening to classical music, which was his absolute passion. He was very aware and enjoyed keeping current on politics.
His last eight years of life were hard as sickness and health problems prevailed. Although in and out of the hospital on many occasions, he tried his best to still show his family his love for them and by providing for his wife as best as he could.
He is survived by his wife, Eva his daughter Sonja, 2 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Karl and Frieda Baatge Hoeke and his sister Erika Hoeke Sardison, who was married to Gustav Sardison.
Papa Heinz, we love you and miss you. We look forward to the day when we will have the promised blessing of being together as an eternal family never to be apart again.
