Like Mike, I also knew Paul in high school (Paint Branch in Burtonsville, MD to be exact). It is good especially on this Veterans Day to see "Stormy" here. Thank you for a fitting cyber tribute.

Mike,

It is nice of you to leave a comment. You might have the right Paul Storms, I do know he went to high school in MD. His father was a Navy Captain at that time if that helps. I'll try to dig up a photo of Paul and Post it sometime soon. That should help a bit.

I hope I am talking about the right person. I am an old acquaintance of Paul Storms' from high school, Paint Branch High School in Burtonsville, MD. At school, his nickname was "Roper" based on his resemblance to the character from Three's company.

I called him "Stormy Weather" from when I ran indoor track with him. For a big white dude, he was pretty fast! Stormy was always an upbeat, happy go lucky guy, with an upbeat, positive, unflappable personality people many only begin to appreciate as they themselves grow and mature. I myself was still maturing then, and didn't fully appreciate the fine qualities of the individual who grew into the man you describe in johncarmichaels.typepad.com.

I wasn't the closest friend of his, but I heard about his untimely death a decade ago and thought of him today. The last time I saw him was about 20 years ago while we were both still in school!

I googled him and this website popped up! From what you write about him I'm pretty sure you knew "Stormy" and I'm glad he lives on in cyberspace. Please write back to tell me if I have the right guy!

Just a quick hoooooraaaah for/to Pauy.
