James C. Rorig, M. D., passed away on February 24, 2012, after a short battle with cancer.

James was born to Kurt and Helen Rorig on October 23, 1952, in Chicago Illinois.

He is survived by: his parents; sons, Brian and Benjamin Rorig; and his sisters, Elizabeth Marxsen and Miriam Rorig Low.

James attended undergraduate and medical school at the University of Illinois. Although medicine was his vocation and passion, he was a prolific painter and many of his works were exhibited. He was also a gardener and an enthusiastic fisherman. Eight years ago he moved to Bay City, where he loved his work with his patients and the community. He was passionate about serving those who could not otherwise afford medical care.

His family is very grateful for the love, compassion and generosity shown by his many friends in Bay City. The family would like to thank Dr. Neret and the Legacy for the loving care of James during his short illness.

The family held a celebration of life for James from 7 until 9 p.m., Tuesday, February 28, 2012 at 1413 Avenue G. Memorial donations can be made to the St. Vincent de Paul Society at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church, Bay City, Texas, The Doctors without Borders, or Matagorda Regional Medical Center Foundation.
