Erik Lyle Sorenson went to Heaven on June 19, 2019.  Erik was born on November 22, 1957, at McAllen General Hospital to Swend Julius Sorenson and Alma Dean Johnson Sorenson.  He is survived by wife Dana Sorenson, son Darik Sorenson, sisters Gerda (Red) Weathers and Linda (Jimmie) Killinger of Bandera and Pipe Creek TX;  Mother in-law Tonya Sandlin of Tennessee and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.

Preceding him in death are parents S. J. “Julio” and Alma Sorenson, brother J. J. Sorenson and other family members.

Erik graduated from McAllen Memorial High School and worked in the Rio Grande Valley at Payne Motors for many years. They moved to Bandera in 2005 where Erik made many friends. He loved sitting in his outside office entertaining all of us.  He was a self-made carpenter, loved woodworking, making puzzle rocking chairs, unique hat racks, gun racks, Christmas figures and signs. Erik was in the process of remodeling their house when he became ill. Erik was one of a kind and we’ll miss him dearly.

His wishes to have a private ceremony at South Padre Island will be carried out this fall.
