Randy Soto Obituary Obituary, Death – Father Randy Soto died away on the evening of December 21, 2022, and the Saint Joseph’s Seminary community would like to offer its deepest sympathies to Father Soto’s family and friends. Father Soto’s passing was announced on December 21. Within the Saint Joseph’s community, Father Randy Soto was a well-liked and respected member. The fact that this information was discovered is a devastating blow to our community on a scale that cannot be adequately described.
It was well knowledge that Fr. Randy was a benevolent individual who frequently bestowed presents upon others. His understanding of the Bible, along with his Christlike humility, was what set him apart as a priest, but his compassion for those who were studying to become priests was also a hallmark of his priesthood. We simply do not have the capacity to comprehend the magnitude of the loss that Father Randy has caused not only to each and every one of us, but also to the Kenrick-Glennon Seminary in St. Louis and the Pontifical North American College in Rome, where he had previously served as a faculty member.
The planning and preparation for the wake as well as the funeral that will take place the following week are still in their respective last stages of development. We will get back to you as soon as we have any new information, so please don’t worry about that in the meantime. You can count on us to do so.
