Daniel Patrick “Pat” Storey, 76, of Portsmouth, passed away Friday, October 2, 2020 at the SOMC Hospice Center. He was born May 30, 1944 in Portsmouth, a son of the late Willard C. and Roberta Sagar Storey.
Pat worked at the former Fuller’s Electronics, Oberling Motor Company and Reitz Music. He graduated from Portsmouth High School and was of the Nazarene faith. Pat enjoyed playing the guitar and singing alongside his late brother-in-law, Steve Bowles. He often said that his hometown of Portsmouth was his little piece of paradise, and he didn’t need to go anywhere-because he had it all right here.
Surviving Pat are his wife, Robin Ann Carty Storey, whom he married October 23, 1981 in Portsmouth; one son, William Daniel Storey of Raleigh, NC; two daughters, Kelley Irene Storey and Stephanie Ann Storey, both of Melbourne, FL; four grandchildren, Anthony Heath, Christopher and Conner Clark, and Sarah Storey; two great-grandchildren, Bruklyn Alice Libertore-Clark and Dayton Samuel Cleary; two brothers, John Storey of Portsmouth and Timothy (Sharma) Storey of Minford; four sisters, Phyllis Storey VanQuail, Nancy (Dan) Adkins and Julie Storey Bowles, all of Portsmouth, and Kimberly Storey of Dallas; many beloved nieces, nephews and their families; and his fur baby, Mollie.
In addition to his parents, he was also preceded in death by three brothers, James, Robert and Willard “Will” Storey; and one sister, Rebecca Storey Paul.
At his request, there are to be no services. However, memorial contributions in Pat’s name may be made to the Portsmouth Public Library, SOMC Hospice or the American Cancer Society.
Arrangements are under the direction of the Ralph F. Scott Funeral Home in Portsmouth.
