Obituary for Charles “Chuck” Howard Sorg

Charles “Chuck” Howard Sorg, 102, of Midland, died early Friday morning, November 30, 2018 at StoryPoint in Midland. He was born September 10, 1916 in Sanford, son of the late Jacob and Mamie (Whitney) Sorg. He married the former Peotraah Camp in 1939. She preceded him in death in 1946. In August of 1947, he married Mary Kay Seltz in Gladwin. She preceded him in death November 3, 2015. Chuck was employed by the Dow Chemical Company as a Master Electrician for 32 years until his retirement. He was also employed by the Midland Public School System for over 10 years. He truly enjoyed working in both of his professions. Chuck always had a project he was working on and built every home he and his family ever lived in. He always liked to stay busy and enjoyed hunting, fishing, and wood carving. He served on church boards in Sanford, Pinconning, and Standish. He also served on community service boards for Sanford Schools, and the township boards in Sanford, Pinconning and Standish. After Kay died, Chuck began a new life at Independence Village, Storypoint, and later in Memory Care where he received loving care.

Surviving are his children, John Sorg, Charlene (Gilbert) Rosin all of Midland, and Joellen (Robert) Thompson of Grand Rapids; five grandchildren, five great-grandchildren, six great-great-grandchildren. In addition to Mary Kay, Peotraah and his parents, he was preceded in death by his brothers and sisters, Edward, Bill, Fred, August, Hazel, Daisy, Elva, Alice and Beulah.

The Funeral Liturgy will be celebrated at 10 a.m. Wednesday, December 5, 2018 from the Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church. Father Kevin Maksym will officiate with the Rite of Committal to follow in the Midland Memorial Gardens Cemetery.
