Hubert Joseph Sorg, 90, of Fort Wayne, formerly of New Haven, passed away Tuesday, December 6, 2016 at Parkview Regional Medical Center, Fort Wayne. Born in Hoagland, he was the son of the late Stephen and Florence (Hake) Sorg. He was a longtime member of St. John the Baptist Church, New Haven, where he was an usher and member of the Holy Name Society. He served his county in the US Army during World War II and was a past member of American Legion Post 330. Hubert was an award-winning car salesman and throughout his many year career worked with Parent Chevrolet, Bill McCormick Chevrolet, and Dehaven Chevrolet. The devoted grandfather often volunteered as a popcorn popper at New Haven Elementary and lovingly sported his “Gramp’s Taxi” license plate when dropping the grandchildren off at school.
