Kim M. “Buckeroo” Sorensen, 60, passed away quietly, on the morning of June 13, 2017 in Gunnison. He was born Sept. 8, 1956 in Gunnison to Neil H. and Mary Louise Munk Sorensen.

He married Elaine Bailey, they later divorced. Kim then married Angie Beckstead, they later divorced.

Kim loved to team rope and ride horses. He made many friends during his rodeo days and somewhere along the way picked up the nick name “Buckeroo.” He has worked in ranching and with livestock most of his life. He enjoyed being in the mountains, hunting and being with his family. He told great stories, which incidentally grew bigger each time he told them. You never knew where “true” started and “B.S.” ended.

Kim is survived by his daughter, Hadley Blu Sorensen, Richfield; mother, Mary Louise; siblings, Linda (Que) Miller and Lee (Tina) Sorensen; sister-in-law, Denise Sorensen, all of Mayfield. He is preceded in death by his father, Neil H; infant sister, Ann; and brother, Kent Sorensen.
