John H. Storrs ("Jack"), of Collegeville, passed away amidst the love of his family on Saturday March 2, 2019 at the age of 90.
Jack was born in Jackson, Michigan on Christmas Day, 1928, son of the late Harry and Mary Louise (Bishop) Storrs.
Having grown up in Michigan, he later found his way to Pennsylvania, living in Hometown, Lansdale and, most recently, Collegeville.
Jack graduated from the University of Detroit with a Bachelor's Degree in Chemical Engineering. His extensive career included positions with DuPont, Atlas Chemical Industries and William H. Rorer Pharmaceuticals.
Jack, a Commander in the United States Navy and Korean War Veteran, served both active duty and in the reserves for a total of 24 years. Forever a proud American, the stars and stripes could always be seen flying at his home.
Jack was a devout Catholic. He served as a lector and led the Saturday morning rosary group. He was a member of the Knights of Columbus and Saint Eleanor's Roman Catholic Church in Collegeville.
Jack was an avid Phillies, Eagles and Penn State fan, always donning one of their caps. His greatest love, however, was his home and his family.

(Crowley) Storrs, his five children: Mary Louise (& William) Cook of Harrison Twp., MI; Sheila (& Gary) Hricik of Malvern, PA; Kathleen (& James) Thomas of Skippack, PA; Thomas Storrs of King of Prussia, PA; Joan (& Paul) Jones of Sicklerville, NJ; and nine grandchildren: Kristen & Thomas (Ashley) Cook; Joseph (Nicole), John, Paul, Mary and Hannah Thomas; Lauren Hricik and Kara Jones.
