Roger A. Sorensen, 91, of Warren, Pa., died Sunday, January 3, 2021, at the Rouse Home. Roger was born in Warren, on May 20, 1929, to the late Andrew and Myrtle Andersen Sorensen. He was a 1947 graduate of Warren Area High School. Roger was employed for 27 years by the City of Warren with the Department of Public Works, retiring in 1991 as a Supervisor. Prior to that he was employed with the Warren Police and Fire Departments for 10 years. Roger is survived by three sons and one daughter; Daniel (Joanne) Sorensen of Russell, Stephen (Barbara) Sorensen of Russell, Keith (Lorie) Sorensen of Russell, and Nancy (Dale) Swanson of Warren; brothers Kenneth Sorensen of Scandia, Ronald Sorensen of Two Harbors, MN, and Gary Sorensen of Warren; sisters Barbara Merritt of Hugo, MN, and Carol McAllister of Logan, OH; ten grandchildren, two great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his wife, Carolyn Johnson Sorensen (whom he married on June 25, 1948); his son Andrew (Rebecca) Sorensen of Anchorage, Alaska, and his grandson; Zachary Sorensen; also a brother Norman Sorensen; and a sister Marcia King. He was a devoted Christian and his greatest joys were his wife of 68 years, his family, deer hunting, woodworking, carving caricatures, and generously offering his time to anyone who needed his considerable handyman abilities. Services will be held on Tuesday, January 12 at the Peterson-Blick Funeral Home in Warren, with visitation at 11:00 and the funeral at noon. Burial will be at Thompson Hill Cemetery, Russell, Pa.

TO all of the Sorensen Families

Both Roger and Carolyn were much a part of my life many years this all brings back many memories of the fun times we had when all of our children were little. A wonderful Christian family was a plus. Just want you to know its tough to lose both a mother and a father, but as Christians you know they are in the arms of Jesus. What a glorious hope we have. Roger had such a super personality and I know you all will deeply miss him. Blessings and Prayers to all of you....Joan AND CHuck Dickinson
