David Storm

Funeral services for David Storm, of Knoxville, were held on Tuesday, Dec. 3, 2013, at the Bybee & Davis Funeral Home with Rev. Greg McClain officiating. Burial followed in the Graceland Cemetery. Musical selections of “Will the Circle be Unbroken” and “You’re the Nearest thing to Heaven” were shared. Casket bearers were: Phillip Storm, Kevin Storm, Josh Rosonke, Dylan Keith, Tim Koon and Chad Moss.

David LaVern Storm was born July 29, 1934, in Lucas County, near Tipperary, the son of Jobe and Gladys (Umbenhower) Storm.

As a young man, Dave farmed and installed high-line poles. On July 18, 1954, he was united in marriage to Connie L. Hartshorn in Knoxville.

Dave spent most of his life in the telephone industry. He and his family lived in several locations around the United States until moving to Knoxville in 1970. Dave retired in 1990 as an Analyst for Contel Telephone Operations.

He enjoyed being outside, whether he was gardening, doing yard work or traveling in his R.V. Dave loved to tease people and everyone knew they would never get a straight answer from him. His greatest joy in life was spending time with his family, of whom he was very proud.

Dave passed away on Friday, Nov. 29, 2013, at his home at the age of 79 years.

He was preceded in death by his parents and siblings: Thelma Fluke, Lois Dachenbach, Wanda Hall, Caryl Storm, Ronald Storm, Donald Storm and two siblings in infancy.

Those left to honor his memory include his loving wife of 59 years, Connie; children, Linda (Don) Norton of Knoxville, David E. (Barb) Storm of Pleasantville, Kevin (Daun) Storm of Knoxville, Cindy (Walter) Norton of Pershing and Jeffery (Lori) Storm of Chandler, Ariz.; siblings, Charles (Lova) Storm of Knoxville and Floyd (Della) Storm and Joanne Davidson all of Chariton; 12 grandchildren; 13 great-grandchildren and many other family members and friends.
