Marvin H. Sorenson, 77, of Luck, Wisconsin passed away on Sunday, December 1, 2019 at Regions Hospital in St. Paul, Minnesota.
Marvin Harold Sorenson was born on February 10, 1942, to Harold and Irene (Christensen) Sorenson in Bone Lake Township, Wisconsin. He was united in marriage to Joan Fuher on June 20, 1970, in Nelson, Wisconsin. To this union two daughters were born.
A proud Vietnam Veteran, Marvin served in the United States Army from April 1964 to April 1966. He earned both a marksmanship and air medal in the course of his enlistment. During his many years, he worked as a roofer, business owner, and in maintenance. After retiring from maintenance at the United Pioneer Home, he could be found outside keeping the yard in tiptop condition or creating one of his many woodworking projects. He also enjoyed deer hunting, fishing, playing cards, and sharing stories. Marvin was often recognized by his trademark bright yellow tape measure suspenders and odiferous offerings. He was very proud of how well he took care of the wild birds and his pets. He said more than once that his only wish was that he had trained his wife and daughters as well as he trained his pets.
Marvin is survived by his wife of 49 years Joan; daughters Sheila Sorenson and Sherri Livingston; grandchildren Ramsey and Paige Livingston; and his three feline companions. He is further survived by sisters Elaine Nelson, Ardell Gutzmer, and Dixie (Bob) Ogilvie; brother Harlan (Cindy) Sorenson; brothers-in-law Ray Jensen and Bob (April) Fuher; sister-in-law Jean Fuher; and many nieces and nephews, relatives, and friends.
Marvin was preceded in death by his infant son; his parents Harold and Irene Sorenson; in-laws George and Edna Fuher; sisters Delorous (Les) Indahl, Jerry (Emmett) Nelson, and Gail Jensen; brothers-in-law Vernon Gutzmer and Eldon Nelson.
