David Leroy

Passed away at his home Thursday, March 1, 2012, at the age of 67.
He was born September 17, 1944 to Wyllamae (Janes) and Julian Edgar Sorrell Sr. in Yakima, WA.
David served in the Army from 1962 to 1965, and was stationed in Alaska during the earthquake of 1964.
He moved to Spokane, WA. in 1970, working briefly in sewing machine maintenance for Pacific Trail, then obtaining a position as factory manager for the original Northwest Bedding Company. There he stayed until January of 1986, when he suffered a massive brain aneurysm, which forced him into early retirement.
David loved traveling, fishing, and fixing anything and everything for everyone. He had a wonderful sense of humor, and loved visiting his many friends for good conversation and a hot cup of coffee.
He is survived by his daughter Sherrie Lynn Conner and his son Scott David Sorrell, and stepson Brian Robert Janosky, whom he raised as his own son; four grandkids, Joshua, Nathaniel, Jay, and Hailey, all of Spokane. He is survived by four sisters, Barbara Canter and Linda Sorrell, of Renton, WA, Jackie Finnbogason of Yakima, WA, and Lola Orr of Tonasket, WA, and many nephews and nieces.
Graveside services will be held at the Washington State Veterans Memorial Cemetery, Thursday, March 8th, at 1:30 pm.
