"I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith." 2 Timothy 4:7
Sam Lee Storkson, 69, passed away on Wednesday, Dec. 26, 2018, in Mesa, Ariz.
A memorial celebration will be held at Banner Church of the Nazarene in Anderson, Mo., on Saturday, March 2, at 2 p.m. Please join us in celebrating Sam Storkson's legacy.
He was born on Oct. 21, 1949, (the first half of the last century as he always said) in Glasgow, Mont.
In Sam's 40 year career in ministry, he served in seven pastorates and on several ministerial alliances to foster interdenominational camaraderie and cooperation. Additionally, he was a police chaplain, volunteer fireman, hospital chaplain and orchestrated weekly Bible studies in elder care facilities across the Midwest.
Sam had a heart for service. His time off was spent shoveling snow for the homebound, hauling hay and digging fence post for local farmers and chopping wood for anyone in need. He is remembered fondly by everyone he encountered.
He is survived by his wife, Adele Storkson, of Chandler, Ariz.; two daughters, Kristen Storkson-Enss, of Kansas City, Mo., and Kelda Smith, of Chandler, Ariz.; one son-in-law, Adam Smith; two grandchildren, Preston and Emeline, of Chandler; two brothers, Jay and Roy Storkson; and one sister, Betty Roos.
