Alvin Edwin Storm, son of Emil and Elizabeth (Wisser) Storm, was born December 26, 1928, near Archer, Iowa. He and his brother, Marvin, grew up on a farm near Archer, helping with the usual farm chores and taking on more responsibility as they were able. Alvin attended country school through the 8th Grade, then completed a correspondence with America Schools to earn his high school diploma.
On August 19, 1952, Alvin was united in marriage to Sadie Te Paske. Their family was made complete with two children: Karen and Wayne.
While his first passion would always be for agriculture, Alvin managed to find time to do some carpentering as well. He enjoyed building things and constructed many wood-working projects over the years for his family and others.
Alvin was a life-long member of the Archer United Methodist Church where he served in many different capacities. He had also been a member of the Archer Co-op Elevator and O’Brien County Conservation Board.
The cold Iowa winters became a lot more tolerable for Alvin and Sadie as they spent the bulk of it in Mesa, Arizona. They had been “snow-birds” for 15 years, and had created some good friendships with their winter neighbors.
On Tuesday, December 1, 2020, Alvin passed from this life at the age of 91 years. Keeping his memory close at heart is his wife of 68 years, Sadie, of Sheldon, Iowa; his children: Karen Storm and Wayne (Sheryl) Storm all of Archer, Iowa; one granddaughter, Katie Marie Storm of Milford, Iowa; a sister-in-law, Lila Fjeld of Primghar, Iowa; and one nephew, Larry (Carolyn) Storm of Archer, Iowa.
Preceding him in death were his parents; an infant brother, Wallace; his brother, Marvin (Irene) Storm; father-in-law and mother-in-law, John and Lucy Te Paske; sister-in-law, Aletha (Alfred) Mouw; brothers-in-law: Russell (Delight) Te Paske and Ralph Fjeld.
