Mr. Zorn passed away while fishing on the Salmon River, August 14, 1999.
He was born June 24, 1934, in Blaney, SC, to Mildred Zorn and David Zorn. His father died in 1938. He was raised in Blaney and given the nickname “Brother”. In Blaney he attended school and worked in the cotton gin to help support his family. He spent countless hours in the forests and swamps around his home. At age 17 he joined the Navy and served in the Korean War. In 1956 he was selected to participate in the Nuclear Navy training program and moved to Idaho. He served in the Navy until 1961 when he received a medical discharge due to a hunting accident.
In 1959 he married Eva Kaye Huntsman at Osgood; in 1963 their marriage solemnized in the Idaho Falls Temple. They made their home and raised their family in Idaho. After retiring from the Navy he worked for a series of contractors at the Idaho National Engineering and Environmental Laboratory. He retired from the INEEL in 1995.
He was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served his Maker and fellow man through his many church callings and positions. He loved learning and continually attended college courses, studied the sciences, and shared this knowledge with those around him. He loved to spend time with his family and friends enjoying the beautiful Northwest, playing with grandchildren, and helping others, where he earned the dubious title of “Mr. Fix-It”. His never-ending willingness to help those in need will always be remembered. He was a friend to all and will be greatly missed by his friends and family.
Surviving are his wife, Kaye Zorn of Idaho Falls; two sons, David Kurt (wife, Pamela) Zorn of Idaho Falls, and Corey Michael Zorn of Park City, Utah; a daughter Lori Kaye (husband, Jim) Arthur of Salt Lake City, Utah; his mother, Annie Mildred Zorn of Elgin, S.C.; two sisters, Beverly Livingston of Columbia, S.C., and Anne Miller of Glen Ellyn, Ill.; seven grandchildren: Tyler, Brooke, Michelle, Jaxon, Zachary, Hannah, and Samuel.
