In Sam Storkson’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.
