Billie L. “Bill” Storey

THOMASVILLE — Another of the “Greatest Generation” has gone on to his reward.  Bill Storey, 86, of Pinewood, died Wednesday, February 26, 2014, after a short stay at Houston Hospice, in Houston. Bill was preceded in death by his wife of sixty years, Doris Shores-Storey and his sister Ann Chafin.  Survivors include his sons, Doug Storey and his wife, Karen Storey, of Houston and Greg Storey of Lufkin; grandchildren, Dustin Storey, Carly Wingeart-Storey, Lacy Storey, Jacob Storey, Connor Storey, and Joshua Storey. In addition he is survived by four great-grandchildren; sister, Eleanor Storey of Moultrie, Georgia; and brother, Richard Storey of Bradenton, Florida. A memorial service for Mr. Storey will be 1:00 p.m., Thursday, March 6, 2014, at Broussard’s, 1605 North Major Drive, Beaumont. A family committal was held at Broussard’s Crematorium, Beaumont. In lieu of flowers, please make memorial contributions to Michael E. DeBakey VA Medical Center at their on-line donation center: http://www.volunteer.va.gov/apps/VolunteerNow/. Please celebrate Bill’s life because it was well lived.  Do not mourn his passing rather celebrate his life.  He was a Dixieland Jazz historian of sorts and one of the lines in one of his favorite songs goes like this:  "I thought I heard Buddy Bowlen say, open up that window and let the bad air out". Put on the music and TURN IT UP!!! Complete and updated information may be found at www.broussards1889.com. — Broussards Funeral Home
