Jeff Storie
July 11, 1956 - November 8, 2009

Jeff Storie, 53, went to be with the Lord on Sunday, November 8, 2009.
Jeff was born July 11, 1956, in Dayton, Ohio. He grew up in the small farm town of Springboro, Ohio, before graduating with a degree in history and economics from Miami University (Ohio). Jeff was admitted to Cumberland School of Law at Samford University, where he received his J.D. in 1981. He then moved to Fort Worth to attend Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and start his law practice. He was a partner in the law firm of Decker, Jones, McMackin, McClane, Hall and Bates, P.C., and acted as the head attorney for the firm's intellectual property practice. This past year he became a member of the Trademark Public Advisory Committee, which advises the director of the U.S. Patent and Trademark office. He also taught entertainment, intellectual property and sports law at the Texas Wesleyan School of Law. He was voted outstanding adjunct professor there in 2001.
His two passions in life were the Lord and his family. He married his precious wife of 26 years, Barbara, on July 30, 1983. Together they lived in Fort Worth and had two children, Josh and Callie. Jeff was a member of Birchman Baptist Church where he taught Sunday school to young married couples. He inspired countless numbers of men, women and children over the years and the lessons taught through his Bible teaching continue to inspire people today. He walked in righteousness and he lived out what he spoke. Jeff was a man of integrity and honor. His unique gift of tenderness and concern for all will truly be missed. He leaves a legacy of friends and relationships all over the country that will miss greatly and never met a stranger and he seemingly knew someone in every town. While our hearts are broken, we know he is with his first love, the Lord Jesus Christ.
Survivors include: loving wife, Barbara; adoring children, Joshua and Callie; parents, Walden and Cora Storie; father-in-law & mother-in-law, Radford and JoAnn Pritchett; extended family, Bob and Sandy Berghegar, Sara, Allison and Haley Berghegar and Jim Pritchett; and a host of friends who will miss him greatly.
