Michael Arch Storey

May 18, 1957 - June 17, 2017

Michael Arch Storey, 60, passed away Saturday night, June 17, 2017. He was born in Ogden, UT to Junior and Marie Storey and was the second youngest of five children.

Mike graduated from Weber High School, where he was known for his outstanding wrestling skills. He also won a state championship. After high school he attended college for a couple of years.

He was best known for his mechanical ability. He could fix anything! Mike also enjoyed creating things to decorate his home with, inside and out. He loved going fishing and camping or doing anything outdoorsy. He had a special relationship with his grandson Anthony; they went on many adventures and were best buds.

Mike was a fun loving, outgoing teddy bear who could make friends with anybody. He was a genuine soul who would give you the shirt off his back. He was like a father to his daughter’s friends, known as Big Poppa!

He is survived by his ex-wife; Shirley Kidman (Harvey), father; Junior, son; Shawn (Sarah), and daughters; Lacey and Summer, who meant the world to him. Grandsons; Jordan, Anthony and Gage, as well as his siblings; Diane (Wes), Debbie (Oliver), Lynn and Mark (Stephanie).

He is preceded in death by his mother Marie.

Mike will be greatly missed and never forgotten! We love you!

In lieu of flowers the family has asked that donations be made to a GoFundMe account that has been set up in his name to help with all expenses.
