Arthur “Artie” J. Sorge, 92, of York, ME, passed away on Monday, October 30th, 2023 at home with his family by his side. He was born in Union City, New Jersey on May 11, 1931 to Richard and Margaret (Lenahan) Sorge.
Family was the highlight of his life. Arthur and his wife of 68 years, Ann “Tina” Sorge, who passed away in May, have 3 daughters, Michele Sorge of York, ME, who predeceased him earlier this year, Dina DellaPasqua and her husband Rick of York, ME, and Elyse Kehl and her husband Chris of Kittery Point, ME; 7 grandchildren Ashley, Brittany, Emily, Dillon, Nicole, Daniel, and Celia; 2 great grandchildren Coen and Iyla; and nephews Richie, Gavin, and Chris. He had one younger brother, Richard “Dick” Sorge, who predeceased him.
Artie was a Navy Veteran and Aircraft Mechanic who served for 4 years and did a tour in the Korean War. When he met the love of his life, he left the Navy then went on to work at the A&P grocery store and the phone company in New Jersey. Upon retirement, he and his wife moved to York, ME, where the family spent their summers and ultimately all decided to call it home.
Artie loved to travel alongside his wife, especially through Europe, and he always planned family vacations which included driving cross country with three small children in tow. He enjoyed the simple pleasures in life–playing solitaire on the desktop, a good game of Rummy 500 at the Central Bean with his grandkids, and a daily crossword puzzle. He had a love for cars and a passion for all things mechanical; Artie was constantly fixing things or taking machines apart, and his knowledge of machines will remain unmatched. His favorite foods included Reuben sandwiches, applesauce oatie cookies, and chocolate ice cream. You could always find him with a cup of coffee in his hand (with just a splash of milk) and never decaffeinated. Artie enjoyed spending time on Harbor Beach in York Harbor with his wife, watching her walk from one end to the other, and sitting around a picnic with his family for any celebration or occasion. Artie was never without a joke, without a laugh, and his smile from ear to ear could brighten anyone’s day.
Arthur, Dad, Pops, Grandpa will forever be missed by his family who have wonderful memories of his guidance, support, and, above all, unconditional love.
