Idaho State Journal, 11/04/15 Dwayne J. (D.J.) Sorenson, 85, returned to his
Father in Heaven, late Saturday night, October 31, 2015. He passed away at
the home of his daughter, Tresa, following an illness. He was born September
5, 1930, to Leon Sorenson and Lillis M. Tippets Sorenson, in Georgetown,
Idaho. He graduated from Georgetown High School in 1948. D.J. was married to
June (Caldwell) Warren, of Paris Idaho, from September 5, 1954 to June 24,
1965. They had two sons, Brandon G. (Jacki) Sorenson, of Pocatello, and Leon
Dwayne, who lived for only 15 hours. He later married Karen Lu Millward, of
Pocatello, July 16, 1976, and they were sealed in the Idaho Falls Temple on
June 1, 1996. She had three daughters from a previous marriage, Cindy
(Scott) McKinnon, of Pocatello, Brenda (David Madsen) Fowler, of Inkom, and
Tresa (Steve) Daniels, of Pocatello. In the fall of 1948, D.J. started
working for the Union Pacific Railroad in the signal department. It was
there that he learned electrical work and was foreman for a while. Around
1954-55 he started working at Monsanto Chemical Co. in Soda Springs, and
also did some freelance electrical wiring for private parties. In the fall
of 1957, he moved to Pocatello and started working for INEEL as an
Electrician and foreman. He worked there until retiring in 1993. As a child,
D.J. lived on a ranch and loved horses and roaming in the fields with his
dog Jack. He enjoyed riding his motorcycle, collecting guns, and because it
was not in his nature to be idle, he was always tinkering with or fixing
something. He and his wife, Karen, loved to get in the car and drive to see
new things. His family and his church were the most important things to him.
He always provided for and made sure his family knew that they were loved.
He is survived by his son, Brandon; step-daughters, Cindy, Brenda, and
Tresa; numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He is preceded in
death by his infant son, Leon; parents, Leon and Lillis; brother, Darwin;
wife Karen; and sister, Bonnie. Funeral services will be held on Saturday,
November 7, 2015 at 11am at the LDS Alameda 5th Ward Church, 1440 Lakeview
