On April 12, 2016, our Little Buddy returned to his Father in Heaven as the superhero he always wanted to be, in a “FLASH.”

Tucker Sorensen was born on September 17, 2009, in Gunnison, Utah, a son of Kirby Arlon and Tawnie Lee Mortensen Sorensen.

Tucker’s personality was one of a kind. He always had a smile on his face and something up his sleeve. He was the kind of person that most people spend a lifetime trying to become: kind, happy, positive, loving, selfless and forgiving.

This all came naturally to him; he didn’t need a long lifetime to learn these things. He was a teacher of these attributes to all he came in contact with. He looked up to superheroes, but he had greater powers than any comic book hero: love, kindness and gratitude.

Tucker was attending kindergarten at Salina Elementary School. Spending time outside with his family and friends was something Tucker looked forward to each day.

Tucker is survived by his dad, Kirby; and his mom, Tawnie (Steve King), all of Salina; sisters Avery, Halie and Lexi, all of Salina; brothers Kason and Kaler both of Tremonton; grandparents Sylvia Mortensen of South Jordan; Trudy Sorensen of Salina; Ted (Linda) Sorensen of Moab; great-grandma Wilmoth Nielson of Salina; and many aunts, uncles and cousins.

He was preceded in death by his grandpa, Fred Mortensen; aunt, Tobie Mortensen; and great-grandpa, Arlon Nielson.

Funeral services were held on Tuesday, April 19, 2016, in the Salina LDS Stake Center.

Burial was in the Salina Eastside Cemetery under the care of the Springer Turner Funeral Home of Richfield and Salina, Utah.
