Robert “Ravi “ F. Storch, 75 of Cookeville, TN, departed this life on June, 7, 2019 after his tenacious fight with cancer.

He was born on November 20, 1943, in Newark, New Jersey. He was the son of the late Michael Daniel and Rose Marie (Griffith) Storch.

He leaves his daughter, Kimberly and husband Peter Serro of Cookeville, TN, daughter Lisa Marie Storch Chill of Montclair, Virginia, son Michael Storch of Cookeville, TN and 9 grandchildren: Matthew Storch, David Gorchoff, Michelle Sullivan and Rylee Serro, all of Cookeville, TN. Jesse Infante, Sara Storch Vincent, and Julia Chill, all of Montclair, VA.
3 great-grandchildren, Judah Gorchoff of Cookeville, TN and Harper and Brayden Vincent of Montclair, VA, sister Arlene Rizzo of Basking Ridge, NJ, brother Richard Storch of Nantucket, MA, and beloved nieces and nephews in NJ.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brother Donald Storch, his nephew Jeffrey Storch, and his niece Beth Storch Hess.

Born in Newark, New Jersey, Robert was raised in Hillside, NJ and spent most of his adult life living in the neighboring township of Union, NJ. He was a vibrant father, grandfather, great grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend. A gregarious man, who welcomed every stranger to the table and who was known by many, will be sorely missed. He was a skilled mechanic and a steadfast leader in the construction industry. He was charismatic and forward thinking which enabled many ventures in his lifetime.

In his later years, he enjoyed volunteering at food pantries, clothing drives, and was PopPop to many foster children. He was a member and served as president for a time at Highlands Residential Council Cookeville, TN. He enjoyed ION crime television shows, classic 60s, and 70s music, a cold beer with a friend and good food. Treasuring his mother’s recipes, he was a natural cook who insisted on taking charge of the kitchens that fed many. He enjoyed walking great distances around town every day, where he would personally share his time and anecdotes with nearly everyone he passed. Robert was known for his positive outlook and sense of humor in life. He carried daily that attitude into his last days.

Mr. Storch had chosen cremation and his family will follow his wishes. His family invites you to join them to celebrate his life at a casual gathering in Dogwood Park, Cookeville, TN on Saturday, June 15 from 2 to 5 PM.

In lieu of flowers, please feel free to donate to your local food pantry in his honor.
