Robert Andrew Jorg, age 53, of LaGrange, Indiana, died December 8, 2020 at Parkview North Hospital, Fort Wayne. Robert was born in Troy, Ohio on September 5, 1967 to Paul Allen Jorg and Marcia Louise (VanDoren) Jorg who survive him on Hamilton Lake, Hamilton, Indiana. Also surviving are his sister Tracey Jorg Rollison and brother-in-law Douglas Rollison of Indianapolis; one nephew, Alexander Rollison and two nieces, Bella and Gemma Rollison also of Indianapolis.
Bob was born with a birth defect, Spina Bifida, but after many surgeries, he was able to walk, ride a bicycle without training wheels, and drive a car without hand controls. He was a 1990 High school graduate from Oakdale Christian High School, Jackson, KY.
Bob was the March of Dimes poster child in our area at the age of two. He acquired several different jobs after graduation including managing a laundromat and working a summer at a church camp in southern Michigan.
Bob became wheelchair and bed bound for the last 17 years, and was a resident in several nursing homes, the last being Miller’s Merry Manor in LaGrange, IN. In spite of all his physical problems, he maintained a good attitude and strong faith in Jesus Christ, his Lord and Savior. The family is comforted by the fact that he is in a much better place now and can do all the things he was never able to do previously.
A memorial service will take place Saturday, January 30, 2021 at 2:00 PM at the Upland Community Church, 439 West Berry Street, Upland, Indiana. Burial will take place at a later date at the Evangelical Mennonite Cemetery, Bluffton, Ohio.
