Remembering our Friend: Rev David Storm

Parrish PhotoFriday, March 11, 2016.

“Fellow Rotarians,
It is with a heavy heart that I send you this ….  Rev. David Storm passed earlier today and I wanted to make sure all of you knew of the passing of this great Rotarian. I am told he was his normal quick-wit self up till the end….just like a bright bulb that finally fades away at the end, just as he would have wanted.
An amazing man dedicated to the church and our rotary club, he will be incredibly missed.  As more details come out around services and other celebrations of life, I will let you know.” –Tim Lenihan, Club President

“The tributes that have come in e-mail form for David Storm cannot be exceeded in eloquence, nor can their sincerity be gainsaid. We are glad that he was honored in life and thus was able to feel the affection and respect of so many before he left us. As some may know, he held a pulpit for years in Port Angeles. At the time of the fiftieth anniversary celebration of his ordination, held in this city, the numbers of attendees were swelled by many who saw fit to travel from there to be present. Such was but one example of the esteem he engendered in the course of a fulfilled life.

Although he traumatically sustained splintering neck fractures that could have rendered him at least paralyzed, he was granted a recovery, possibly by One who decided that we might have him a bit longer.

The Rotarians and those at Merrill Gardens will miss his philosophy and good humor. He has left a hiatus in both places.”-Dr Harold Ellner

Such a wonderful man”.-John Reynolds

He was a fine man.”-Arnold Swanberg

Rev. Storm was a hero to me.”-Tom Ranken

“I did not know Rev. Storm very long but, as the daughter of an Episcopal priest, I enjoyed his invocations immensely and had some memorable chats with him over breakfast. I was so impressed by his commitment to Rotary and unblemished attendance record. What a remarkable man and great role model.”-Sarah Cave 

“Reverend Storm was a friend to all of us, ready at a moment’s notice to provide an invocation, and brought his sense of humor and joy to our Rotary meetings. He will be remembered well.-Lillian “Scotty” Ottaviano
