JEROME JAMES SORICH passed away unexpectedly in Napa, California, on May 19, 2020, at the age of 59.
Jerome is survived by his two children, Adam Sorich of Santa Rosa and Scott Sorich of Paradise, California. He also has three grandchildren, Charlotte, Caleb, and Olivia. Jerome is preceded in death by his wife, Theresa Sorich, and his parents, Walter, and Donna Sorich of San Jose.
Jerome was born on June 10, 1960 in San Jose, California, to Walter and Donna Sorich. Jerome has five brothers and three sisters. He grew up in San Jose and graduated from James Lick High School in 1979. He married Theresa Carminito while living in San Jose in 1984. The family moved to Napa in 1993, where he continued to raise his boys to be strong, loving adults who show kindness to everyone they meet. Jerome taught night classes for many years at a City College in the Bay Area, while working full time and taking care of his family.
Jerome was an accomplished machinist and worked at Toray Advanced Composites. He was very talented and creative, which led him to begin an online company that sold his unique designs. Jerome loved to spend time with his family and friends and would often surprise you with a phone call just to talk. Jerome loved to ride his motorcycle and take trips to visit friends, family and to see God’s beautiful earth. He stayed active by walking his dog and cat and he loved taking long hikes. Jerome was a believer in his Savior, Jesus Christ, and is now home with his Lord and is dancing with his wife in Heaven to the song, Harvest Moon. He will be missed every single day.
A memorial service is scheduled for 10:00 a.m., Saturday, June 20, 2020, at Grace Baptist Church, 3765 Solano Avenue, Napa. All are welcome to attend and celebrate Jerome’s life.
