Daryl D. Sorenson, 59, passed away on Aug. 8, 2017. His life was taken too soon and he had so much to give and offer in this life. He was a devoted father to Dustin Sorenson and Kelsey Chatski; grandfather to Mekhi Ashby and Brodie Chatski; and foster father to Cody Sekasin, six brothers and sisters, nephews and nieces and many other loving family and friends. He died suddenly in his home in Palmer, Alaska.
A Celebration of Life for Daryl will be on Aug. 26, 2017, with family and friends in Seattle, Wash.
Born on July 19, 1958, in Fargo, N.D., to Dwain and Marjorie Sorenson, Daryl's birth came with a big surprise: David Sorenson, his twin brother. Daryl graduated from Washington State University with his Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science in Architecture. He then worked his way up to become one of the owners and Principals at USKH Inc., for over 23 years, as the Department Head in the Architecture Department.
Daryl was a gracious and generous man and loved to build and do things with his hands; he was very gifted in everything he did. No matter what the occasion, he was always the first person to be called and he never hesitated to go the extra mile. He worked hard in everything he undertook, and he taught his children to do likewise.
An Alaskan for over four decades, Daryl loved fishing, boating and camping, and always made sure to bring others along for the fun. He could make any setting an exciting one, for he was the "life of the party," always making people laugh and putting smiles on everyone's faces. Daryl touched so many lives and will be greatly missed.
We love and miss you so much, my Daryl.
