Jeff Soderberg took his final flight from this earth on January 5, 2023. He was only 67 years old and stayed with us as long as he could as he battled early-onset dementia. His wife and partner Camille Cornaby was at his side as they had been for 35 years. Jeff was born to Dr. Tom Soderberg and Shirley Maughan who both preceeded him in death.
Jeff was proud of his MBA from the University of Utah but he was more proud of the business he and Camille built together 29 years ago, Software Technology Group. He was also very proud of all the children and grandchildren in his life. His children are Erik (Beth), Greg (Lauren), Kate (Trevor) and by marriage James (Heather) and Chris. He made a great effort to spend a lot of time with them and was lucky enough to travel and enjoy a trip with each family during the final year of his life.
Jeff was an accomplished and proficient pilot. He was lucky enough to fly family and friends in small planes for over 20 years. He was especially proud of his intercontinental flight from the US to Canada, Iceland, then Scotland and back. It had been one of his life goals.
Jeff was very athletic and enjoyed many sports including rock climbing, mountain and road biking, hiking, mountaineering, skiing and running. He loved to travel and he and Camille visited many parts of the world, often with friends or family. He was equally at home camping in the desert or mountains. He enjoyed fly fishing and it provided him outdoor time and the thrill of the catch (and release).
He loved music and attended many concerts. There was always music playing in the house and car and he would make a game of naming the artists.
Jeff had a passion for wine and that inspired a lot of the travel he and Camille did. He loved to collect and drink wine and was instrumental in helping to create a beautiful wine room in their home.
The pandemic made jigsaw puzzles more integral to everyday life with Jeff. It was a hobby that gave him joy until he passed. There was always a puzzle on the table ready to be worked on.
Private funeral services for the immediate family will be held on Saturday, January 14. If anyone feels that they would like to remember Jeff please consider a donation to a charity of your choice or plant a tree on his behalf.
