In Cambodia, Sor worked as a farmer to support his family. Then in 1980, Sor moved his family to the US to provide them with greater safety and opportunity. The family lived in Chicago for 2 years and then moved to Midland, Texas where he worked for the City of Midland until his retirement at 62 years old.

Sor was quiet at times but he was always the most loving husband, father and grandpa. His laugh and smile would light up any room and anyone that met him would describe him as kind and happy. When he wasn’t playing with grandchildren, he enjoyed eating hamburgers, laughing at videos on his phone and watching football ... college, NFL, all of it. He was also very faithful, meditating every day and actively attending the Cambodian Buddhist Temple in Lewisville and Oak Cliff.
