Ken was born in Long Beach, Calif., on June 17, 1945, to Frank and Betty Sorensen.
He moved to Grass Valley in 1970 with his beautiful wife, Darlene, where they established a wonderful journey together for 45 years.
Ken worked for UPS for 28 years, retiring in June 2007. He filled his retirement years with the things he loved to do: mountain and road biking, camping, backpacking, serving in his church, spending time with his son, Eric, and daughter-in-law, Annabel, along with his grandchildren, Ezekiel, Elijah and Izabella.
He worked with Christian Encounters Ministries for over 20 years, raising support through the "Agony Ride," a 24-hour bicycle ride. Most importantly, Ken loved and continues to love his relationship with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Ken Sorensen was a loving husband, father and grandfather who lived life to the fullest.
