Theo Storimans, beloved husband of sixty-two years Cornelia (Elly) Theodora Maria Storimans (nee Wolfs), of Calgary, AB, passed away on Sunday, June 6, 2021 at the age of 86 years.
Theo was born in Tilburg, The Netherlands on October 22, 1934.
He immigrated and moved to Winnipeg, MB in 1957 and in 1973 Theo and his family moved to Calgary, AB. When Theo lived in the Netherlands he joined the Marine Corps and was stationed for one year in Papua New Guinea. After leaving the Marine Corps Theo moved to Canada and became a milkman in Winnipeg.
Theo married the love of his life, Elly in 1958, after she immigrated to Canada from the Netherlands.
When Theo moved to Calgary, he continued as a milkman and later became a custodian at Saint Bonaventure for the Catholic schoolboard where he retired in 1996.
Theo loved and had a passion for the outdoors and every spare moment he had he was either riding his bike, playing golf with his friends or going on walks with his family or friends. Theo’s most memorable vacations were when he went to Myrtle Beach with his daughter and his grandchildren and later on having a trailer on his favorite campsite at Koocanusa Campsite and Marina with his grandchildren.
He will be most remembered for his candid smile and his silly jokes.
