We created a GatheringUs memorial to celebrate Perry. Thank you for contributing to this lasting memorial.

Perry H. Sorenson, 76, born Dec. 28, 1945, passed away Feb. 28, 2022.

    One thing I noticed the first time I met Perry was that a big smile was either on his face or was about to be. The best part was that it was a genuine smile of happiness, glad-to-meet-you-ness, and kindness. He actually valued each person he met in one...  more
