Dave Sorensen, son of Paul and Dee Sorensen, lived in Lago colony from 1957-1963 (aged 2-8), along with two younger sisters, Andrea and Lisa. Lisa was born at the Lago hospital. My dad, Paul, was the industrial psychologist for the refinery. The family subsequently moved to Bronxville, NY a suburb of NY City, and Dee still lives there. Paul died in 1998 after a very successful management consulting career in his own company. Dave is a semi-retired consultant after 20 years with the major defense contractor, SAIC. He pursues his lifetime interests as a world traveler, artist and photographer. He married a Dutch woman, Carolien, in 1983, while a US Marine Corps helicopter pilot and intelligence officer. They now live in Yorktown, Virginia with son, Erik (18), and Britt (13). Andrea married Mark Sherman and now lives in Boynton Beach, Florida. Lisa lives near Dee in Tuckahoe, NY. She is a professional photographer and has recently become engaged. The Sorensen family frequently visited Aruba in the 60's and 70's. Dave's last visit to Aruba was in 1991, when they toured the island with Carolien's brother, Colonel Erik-Jan Blommestijn, then a Dutch Marine officer stationed on Curacao. Dave also visited Curacao in 1998 to see the total eclipse. He has painted various Aruba/ABC themed paintings and written an illustrated children's story for his kids based on the staircase that ran down the cliff by the tennis courts to Baby Lagoon. They remained friends with some of the old Seroe Colorado and Aruba contacts, to include Mary and Louis MacNutt, and Hilde and Peter Verheijdt (currently in Oosterbeek, NL).
