      "Charles L. Soter
      "NEWPORT NEWS -- Charles Leonard Soter, 88, passed away Sunday, Dec. 13, 1998, at Riverside Regional Medical Center. Charlie was a lifelong resident of Newport News, and a graduate of Newport News High School. He graduated from the Newport News Shipbuilding Apprentice School in 1935, serving his apprenticeship as an electrician.
      "Charlie retired from Newport News Shipbuilding in 1975 after 45 years of service. He was on the superintendents staff of the Hull Outfitting Division from 1948 until his retirement and was the president of the Apprentice Alumni Association in 1944. Charlie was a member of the Propeller Club, The Mariners' Museum, and St. Vincent De Paul Catholic Church.
      "Mr. Soter was preceded in death by his parents, George Nicholas Soter and Agnes Ernst Soter, and his oldest son, Chuck Soter. He is survived by his beloved wife of 58 years, Myra W. Soter; two sons, Paul W. Soter and Walter E. Soter, both of Newport News; three daughters, Myra T. Mays, and her husband, Bill, of Warsaw, N.C., Janet Oxley, and her husband, Tom, of Newport News, and Rebecca Tuzzolo, and her husband, Lt. Cmdr. Paul Tuzzolo, of Newport News; a brother, Ernie Soter of Newport News; two sisters, Cynthia Horan and Clara Soter, both of Newport News; and seven grandchildren, Linne and Nicole Oxley, Jennifer and Billy Mays, Zachary Soter and Joseph and Gina Tuzzolo.
      "Charlie will be fondly remembered by his family as a devoted husband, father and grandfather and will be deeply missed by all who knew him. He loved to reminisce about the days past and contained a wealth of knowledge he enjoyed sharing with anyone that would listen. The city of Newport News and the Shipyard have lost a great historian.
      "The family will receive friends from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 15, at St. Vincent De Paul Catholic Church, followed by a Mass of the Resurrection at 7 p.m., celebrated by the Rev. Lloyd Stephenson. Interment will be held at 10 a.m. Wednesday in Peninsula Memorial Park.
      "In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the building fund of St. Vincent De Paul Catholic Church, 230 33rd St., P.O. Box 258, Newport News, Va. 23607.
      "Arrangements are by Weymouth Funeral Home."
