Charles Storrie Obituary
'Charles and Evelyn
Storrie-Together Forever'
Charles E.
Storrie, Sr.
Age 90, a long-time resident of New Philadelphia, died Wednesday, Aug. 20, 2014, in Schoenbrunn Healthcare. Born Feb. 4, 1924, at Dennison, he was a son of the late George and Blanche (Bowers) Storrie. Charles attended school in Sherrodsville, and went on to serve honorably with the United States Marine Corps in the Pacific Theatre of Operations during the Second World War. Following his service time, he returned to Tuscarawas County and married Evelyn M. Meechan on Feb. 21, 1948, in Immaculate Conception Church at Dennison. The couple reared two sons and shared over 59 years of marriage before Evelyn's passing on Sept. 26, 2007. Charles was employed by L.J. Strawn Trucking Co. at Canton for 26 years, and by Matlack, Inc., Wilmington, Delaware, from which he retired. First and foremost, Charles was a devoted family man. He loved time spent with Evelyn, his children, his grandchildren and his great-granchildren. He was a member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars at New Philadelphia; enjoyed traveling; riding motorcycles much of his life – owning several Harley-Davidsons; and was a fan of the races at Midvale. Additionally, Charles maintained a good sense of humor to the very end.
Charles is survived by his two sons, Charles E. (Marva Joan) Storrie, Jr. of Dennison, and Tim (Carolyn) Storrie of Spring Grove, Pa.; his five grandchildren: Wendy (Dan) Burroway, Charles (Jennie) Storrie, III, Shannon (Rick) Kerns, Heather (Mike) Sutton and Steven Storrie; his five great-grandchildren: Alex and Arista Burroway, Charles, IV "Chase" and Chelsea Storrie, and Zaiden Kerns; his sister, Ruby Kail of New Philadelphia; and his several nieces and nephews. Besides his parents, and his beloved wife, Evelyn, Charles was preceded in death by his infant son, John Allen Storrie; his sister, Helen Dennis; and his brothers, John and George Storrie and Vernon Bowers.
Family and friends are invited to call at the Toland-Herzig Funeral Home & Crematory, 246 E. High Ave., New Philadelphia, on Saturday, Aug. 23rd., 12:30 – 1:30 p.m. A funeral service, officiated by Pastor Max Canfield of New Philadelphia's First Church of the Brethren, will follow at 1:30. Burial will be in Union Cemetery, Uhrichsville, where military rites will be presented. Following the committal, there will be a lunch in the Toland-Herzig Monarch Center on the Boulevard at Dover. To sign an online guestbook and share a fond memory of Charles, please visit the Obituaries and Flowers on the funeral home's website. The family suggests that, instead of flowers, contributions in Charles' memory be made to Community Hospice, 716 Commercial Ave. S.W., New Philadelphia, Ohio 44663.
