Leon Farrimond Sorensen passed away surrounded by loved ones at his home on April 22, 2021 at the
age of 67. Leon was born to Glenn and Alberta Sorensen on June 14, 1953 in Hailey, Idaho. He was the
fifth of nine siblings.
Leon was raised on a dairy farm in Dietrich, Idaho where he learned many responsibilities. He attended
Dietrich High School and played many sports. After graduating in May of 1972, he obtained his first full
time job away from home. He worked as a quality control supervisor at Tupperware Manufacturing in
Jerome, Idaho. It was there that he met a beautiful machine operator. Leon didn’t pass on the
opportunity to ask her for a date, and he was very happy when she accepted. On June 15, 1973, Leon
and Mary Lou were united in marriage in Jerome, Idaho. It was there that they made residence and
started a family. On August 7, 1975, they welcomed a “Daddy’s Girl.” On September 11, 1978, they
welcomed a baby boy.
In 1978, Leon left Tupperware to work for the family business in Twin Falls, Idaho. He was employed as
a truck driver for Southern Idaho Transport . In 1996, the business expanded to Cedar City, Utah. Leon
and Mary packed up all their belongings and moved to Cedar City to run it’s division. In 2011, the family
sold the business and Leon and Mary used their portion of the sale to start their own company which is
still in operation as HTC Trucking.
Leon is survived by his beautiful spouse of 47 years, Mary Sorensen (Cedar City, UT). He has two
children, Kami (Nick) Tuttle of Port Angeles, WA and Shane (Ginger) Sorensen of Cedar City, UT. He was
blessed with three beautiful grandchildren; Lucy Lou and Isaiah Travis Sorensen, and Odin Soren Tuttle.

and Eric Dilworth), two nieces (Shellise Sharp and LiAnn Sorensen).
On April 22, 2002, nineteen years to the day, Leon’s sister-in-law (Mary’s identical twin sister) passed
away. Leon was honored to take her kids under his wing and viewed them as his children as well. Chris
(Amanda) Kuhn of Kennewick , WA and Stephanie (Mark) Hawkins of Spring Creek, NV. They added 5
surviving grandchildren to Leon’s life; Conner, Deegan, Kahne, Matthew and Haylee. Then also, Henry,
who was already awaiting his grandfather in heaven.
Additionally, Leon was such a sweet spirit and thoughtful person that there are numerous others who
viewed him as a 2nd father or grandfather. You were all loved deeply by him.
There will be a viewing at Affordable Funeral Services (2002 N Main Street) from 6-8 pm on Friday, April 30,
2021. A funeral service will be held at the LDS Church located at 370 North 4050 West Cedar City, UT on

numerous friends and family who have been there for support and love, helping in every way they can,
your generosity has been greatly appreciated and will never be forgotten.

Leon was such a great guy! He was gentle and kind - he would do whatever was needed to make anyone more comfortable. We always felt welcome in their home. He and Mary have always been a great team - together they showed so much love. What a great example for all their family and friends! His phone calls on birthdays and holidays meant so much to us! He will be missed. Love to all the family from all our family.

Much love from your brothers and sisters.
