His passions included music, nature, photography, and 3D digital modeling. He aspired to be a professional game designer, having begun the process to conceptualize and design his own video game. Storm had a love of video games from a young age and despite his introverted nature, he developed a small community of online gaming friends that became his closest friends and confidantes.

Despite his technical leanings, Storm was also a lover of nature and animals. His family remembers him as the “animal whisperer” as his gentle, kind soul tended to attract animals, both domesticated and wild. He made it his mission to not only care for, but fiercely protect, the cats, dogs, chickens, ducks, goose, and other animals he had throughout his lifetime.

His heavenly waiting party includes his grandparents Harold H. and Marjorie Faye Craft and Gerald and Karrie Warrell, and his uncle Steve Craft.

Storm is survived by his father and mother, David and Toniese Craft; brothers and sisters Corey and Melani Craft, Alicia Kovac, Kailei and Joshua Faglier, and Erekose and Morgan Craft; nieces and nephews Carter Kovac, Devyn Kovac, Nova Craft, and Benjamin Faglier; and a number of loving aunts, uncles, and cousins.

He loved his family deeply and he will be painfully missed by all that loved him most in his life.
