Harold Sorrell

May 16, 1933 — February 6, 2023


Harold Freeman Sorrell, 89, of Perry has gone to heaven.  Harold was born in Geary, OK on May 16, 1933, to Thomas Joseph and Blanch Ella (Sears) Sorrell.   He attended Blanchard Oklahoma High School, graduating in 1951.  He went on to attend Central State College in Edmond, OK. He worked as a salesman in the lumber and trailer industry and was a successful business owner.  Harold married Donna, the love of his life, on January 10, 1959 in Amarillo, Texas. Together they made their home in Perry and raised four beautiful kids. They enjoyed 64 years of true happiness together.

He enjoyed flying airplanes, traveling, spending time at the lake and spoiling the grandkids.  His family was the light of his life.  Harold was a prankster and an avid auction buyer.  He liked to camp at the lake with his family. He loved the Lord and there is no doubt that he was welcomed into the kingdom of heaven with open arms. He was a member of the First Baptist Church of Perry.

He leaves behind to mourn his loss: wife Donna of the home, daughter Lori Johnson and her husband Ronald of Orlando, daughter Sherry Rorabaugh of Perry, son Steve Sorrell and his wife Alina of Edmond, grandchildren: McKay Rorabaugh and his wife Rachel of Moore, Malachi Johnson and  Allie of Stillwater, Sierra Sorrell of OKC, Garrison Sorrell and Jackson Sorrell both of Edmond. Great grandchildren: Remmington Johnson, Blair Johnson, Violet Johnson, and Arbor Rorabaugh.
