Obituary of Christian Sorensen

William Christian “Chris” Sorensen, 71, passed away May 9, 2019 after a courageous fight with pancreatic cancer. He was surrounded by family and friends during his last days, passing peacefully at home in the presence of his wife and daughters.

 

Chris was born in Urbana, Illinois on February 19, 1948 to John Robert and Mary Elizabeth Sorensen. He spent his early years in Illinois and moved to Florida his sophomore year in high school. He attended the University of Florida for l year then transferred to Stetson University where he earned his B.A. in 1970 and his M.Ed. in Guidance and Counseling in 1975. Chris was an active member of Sigma Nu Fraternity and remained friends with many brothers throughout his life. He continued his involvement with Sigma Nu after graduation by serving as their Chapter Advisor for 20 years. In 2013 he was inducted into the Inaugural class of Sigma Nu Delta Mu Chapter Hall of Fame.

 

Chris was a strong advocate for public education as evidenced by his 36 years as a School Psychologist in the Volusia County School System. He spent his life serving children in various ways; as president of the East Central Florida Chapter of Phi Delta Kappa, as an active member of VEA, as an NEA delegate and as an adjunct professor at DBCC. After retirement from the school system he continued to work providing psychological evaluations to adolescents for the State of Florida and serving as a Guardian Ad Litem.

 

Chris was a devoted son, husband, father and grandfather (Papa). His purpose in life was taking care of his family and spending time with family and close friends. We will all cherish the memories of family gatherings and summer vacations in Big Canoe, Georgia.

We will be forever thankful for sharing Chris’s wit, wisdom and love.

 

Chris is survived by his loving wife of 40 years, Lynn Kitching Sorensen, daughters Erika Lynn Iurcovich (Max), Melissa Christine Sorensen (Tim) and precious granddaughters Liliana, Emma and Charlotte.

 

A memorial service will be held at First Presbyterian Church of DeLand at 3 PM on May 25th followed by a celebration of Chris’s life at home. All are welcome. “Absent from the body – Present with the Lord” 2Corinthians 5:8.  Rest in peace Chris, Daddy, Papa. We love you.
