Dennis A. Storck, 64, of Laurel, passed away July 14, after a long illness. He was born March 3rd, 1956 to Gordon and Hazel (Leach) Storck. He grew up in Laurel and graduated in 1974. He worked many jobs from the railroad to the oil fields, but Dennis discovered underground mining in the 80s and he loved it! Dennis met his partners in crime, Tamara Parker and her son Ryan in 1986 and the three of them adventured across the western U.S. together as Dennis worked in the mines. They moved back to Laurel and married in 1992. When Ryan was grown, Dennis and Tamara continued their adventures to South America. They lived in Venezuela, Chile, Argentina and Guatemala doing what Dennis loved most. He made lifelong friends all over the U.S. and South America. Many were still in contact with him until his passing.

Dennis is survived by his wife Tamara; son Ryan Barthuly and wife Alina; grandchildren Shaylee, Maxwell, and Samuel Barthuly. He is also survived by his mother Hazel Storck; sisters Suzanne Leonard and Sheri Thompson; niece Gretchan Leonard and her children, Natasha (daughter Navarah), Alex (daughter KayeLea) and Kevin; nephews Chris Thompson (daughters Joelie and Emma, son Mason) and Kyle Thompson; and uncle Harley Leach and wife Karla. He had many other cousins and relatives too numerous to mention. Dennis was preceded in death by his father Gordon Storck.

He was truly one of a kind and much loved by his family and friends. We will miss him tremendously, our sorrow is immeasurable, and our lives have been changed forever.

Dennis did not want a funeral, but rather a celebration of his life on the 4th of July following his passing and we will respect his wishes. See you next 4th of July! Memorials to the United Network for Organ Sharing
