Loving father, husband, and friend

Obituary of Martin Storm

Belmont, California, United States

(06/09/1975 - 07/29/2023)

Martin Storm, beloved son of Tomas and Christina Storm, departed from this world on July 29, 2023. He was born on June 9, 1975 in Sweden, where he grew up with two brothers, Johan and Stefan. He had many rich experiences there, including having a pet goat and making friends with an orangutan and guanaco when he worked at the zoo.

Martin served in the army in Sweden and then pursued his education at Keuka College on a lacrosse scholarship. Always pushing himself, he decided to change to the hardest major, biochemistry; and thus started his passion for science. He continued on this path with a doctoral degree in clinical microbiology from Uppsala University back in Sweden and decided to move to the United States permanently with a postdoctoral position at Baylor College of Medicine. From there, he kickstarted his successful career in the life sciences field.

It was through work that Martin solidly found his soulmate in Karen Li, and the two sealed their love in a beautiful wedding ceremony in 2014. Together, they welcomed a son named Erik, who became the light of their lives. As a devoted husband and father, Martin always put his family's needs above his own and never missed an opportunity to show his love and support to Karen and Erik -- including being a "tiger dad" for Erik and teaching him sports, piano, art, and chess.

Martin was not only a respected and accomplished individual but also a compassionate friend who was always willing to lend a helping hand. He possessed a warm smile that could lighten up any room, and his intelligence and compassion made him a treasured friend and a pillar of support for many.

In his spare time, Martin had a deep love for the outdoors. He enjoyed hiking through the picturesque trails of California, embracing the serenity of nature. Martin loved music and could often be found playing his collection of guitars. He was also the executive chef in the Li-Storm household and shared his culinary talents with family and friends.

Martin leaves behind a legacy of love, dedication, and compassion. He will be deeply missed by his wife, Karen, and their son, Erik, with whom he shared countless cherished memories. He will forever be remembered by his parents, Tomas and Christina Storm, who instilled in him the values he held dear. Martin's passing has also left a void in the hearts of his extended family, friends, and colleagues, who will preserve his memory with great fondness.

Although Martin's departure leaves a profound void, his life serves as a reminder to cherish the moments we have, to express our love to those around us, and to strive towards our dreams without hesitation. May his soul find eternal peace and may his memory continue to inspire and guide us in the years to come.

You can to the family or in memory of Martin Storm.
