I did not know this man but transiently meeting him once or twice in my younger days as i had the pleasure of being school and play mates with his son, David. This man must have been a wonderful person because of the characteristics he instilled in that son with whom im familiar. You are measured in part by your progeny, and this man has left a mountain of strength and character in his own. Im sure that he will be missed.

We send our deepest condolences to the Storie Family. Thank you for allowing us to know, love and care for such a remarkable man. Doc, as we affectionately called me, was a man of few words, but when he spoke everyone listened. He is missed by our team members and especially by those veterans that sat with him for lunch and dinner. May God continue to bless you and your family.
