I will never forget getting to know Bro. Storms when I was a teenager.
One year I rode with him in his VW Bug to church camp.
I lost contact with him, but never forgot him!
I thank God for Bro. Lee Storms!

Austin, Liam, Pixie and I love you, Lee! ❤️ You will forever be in our hearts!

LeVada C. and family,
I am so sorry to hear of Uncle Lee passing. I have completely lost touch with you over the years, but you've always been in my thoughts. Lee was a faithful servant of the Lord, but could still be a mischievous at times! You're all in my thoughts and prayers!

LaVada and family,
I am so very sorry to learn of your loss. My heartfelt prayers to each of you.
LaVada, this is your old Superior Federal Manager Debra England, formerly Reames. Lee was always so gentle and kind, and always had a smile on his face.
I pray for strength and courage to carry you through this sad time. I love you always.

Bro. Lee married my husband and I when he was pastor at Pleasant Hill in Scranton. He and Mrs. Levada drove to Eureka Springs to perform the ceremony. They were a sweet couple always helping others. He will be missed!

Lee sure will be missed, but he said multiple times that he was ready to be home with the Lord and that gives us some peace. Lee faithfully served the Lord, loved my grandma/our family and spread God’s word in everything he did. His motto was “no worries” because he knew what was in store for him. Thankful he was in our family and that we got to have so many great memories with him. This world is not our home...

Lee was such a blessing to our family. He and my mom shared 40 years together. Lee loved the Lord first, but he sure did love my mom as well and always took such good care of her. His love for the Lord was always evident, but it was even more evident in the last 6 months of his life. His motto during the last 6 months was “no worries”! He was able to have no worries, because he knew Heaven was waiting for him. I’ve never had the opportunity to watch someone who is ill and knows what their fate holds but was still focused on preaching God’s Word and witnessing for the Lord. Lee was loved by so many and will certainly be missed !!
