Louis Harold Sorg

Louis Harold Sorg, a retired Coast Guard and commercial baker who spent his last 16 years as a champion for the Prairie Ridge community, has died.

Born in 1936, he worked to create a positive environment in Prairie Ridge, serving as an honorary security volunteer and community safety ambassador while reaching out to the residents to keep the neighborhood safe. Affectionately known as “Grumpy” by those who knew him, he received a Pierce County outstanding volunteer award in 2002 and also the 2005 Super Star award from the Safe Streets Campaign. His favorite pastimes were working on his fish ponds, tinkering with new technology, whale watching, playing helicopter computer games and Texas hold ’em.

He is survived by wife Mary; daughter Lynelle; stepdaughter LaVyonne; stepson Derrick; nine grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.

A memorial is planned for 11 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 6, in the Prairie Ridge Community Recreation Hall, 14205 215th Ave. E. in Bonney Lake.
