Walter R. “Skip” Storz, 89, of Massillon, our beloved dad, grandpa and great-grandpa, passed away quietly, on Saturday afternoon, December 12, 2020, just four days before his ninetieth birthday. Born in Massillon, a son to the late Karl and Alberta (Myers) Storz, Skip graduated from Washing ton High School with the Class of 1948. He served honorably in the US Air Force during the Korean Conflict and after returning to Massillon, he worked as a milkman for Reiter Dairy. He was also a licensed insurance agent for American General Life Insurance Co. An excellent athlete, Skip loved all sports, especially baseball and golf. Throughout his entire life he remained a dedicated fan of Tiger Football and in fact, for several years during the late ‘60’s and into the ‘70’s, he scouted Tiger opponents in advance of upcoming games.
A life-member of St. John’s United Church of Christ in Massillon, he served his faith community as a deacon and usher.
