SORENSEN, Arne T., OLY
January 21, 1934 - May 19, 2018
With deep sadness we mark the passing of a shooting legend. Arne accomplished much with his work ethic and inquisitive mind. Predeceased by his daughter Anna Marie Pasternak (Joseph) he leaves behind Rosemary, his wife of 59 years, two sons Wayne (Diane) and Steven, grandsons Jay, Justin and Steven Jr, Michael Pasternak and granddaughter Erin Pasternak. Also sisters Hanna Rasmussen (Jorgen), Edith Olsen, brothers Svend and Thomas (Lizbeth), and many nieces and nephews. Arne's passion was target shooting. A 6th place in the Montreal 1976 Summer Olympics and 5th place in the 1978 World Championships put him among the world's elite. He also excelled at long-range rifle and Metallic Silhouette competitions. He achieved these accomplishments while working in the grueling drywall trade. With Rosemary's support of his passion, Arne was truly blessed and could not have achieved what he did. He survived a brain aneurysm in 2016. These last few years required her constant attention which she gave selflessly and lovingly. A memorial will be held for Arne at a later date. Email [email protected] if you knew Arne, with remembrances and condolences. Arrangements in care of Evan J. Strong Funeral Services (403)265-1199. Donations suggested to Sarcee Hospice.
