Joseph Storey

Arcadia - Joseph William "Joe" Storey, age 90, passed away on Friday, October 22, 2021, in Shreveport, LA. He was born in Arcadia, LA on July 27, 1931, to William Alexander "Will" Storey and Lucille Rogers Storey. After graduation, he went to work at the Arcadia Motor Company where he was parts manager for 10 years. Will (His dad, as he was affectionately known) was the Town Marshal of Arcadia and passed away, while in that position, after a massive heart attack. After Mr. Will's passing, the Town of Arcadia bestowed the physical duties of Town Marshal to Joe. Joe and Mell Rose lived outside the "City" limits and therefore had to pick up house and all to move into Arcadia. That is when Joe started his law enforcement career that spanned over 38 years. He served the Town of Arcadia in the capacity of Chief of Police for 18 years, and then joined the Bienville Parish Sheriff's Department as a deputy for 8 years. After careful consideration, Joe decided to run for the office of Sheriff, where he served the people of Bienville Parish for 12 years. Joe was a special servant to all. He loved the people, and they truly loved him back. He was a faithful member of First Baptist Church of Arcadia. He was also a member of the Arcadia Lions Club, and was active in the Chamber of Commerce, where he was the winner of the Heritage Award, which he cherished. He was preceded in death by his parents, a granddaughter, Melanie Elizabeth Bergeron, and siblings, James Thomas, Sarah, and Judy. He is survived by his wife of 66 years, Mell Rose, daughter, Gaye Storey Hudani (Minaz), granddaughter, Courtney Bergeron Holcomb (Alan), and great granddaughters; Mackenzie, Savannah, and Alaina Holcomb. Joe is also survived by numerous nieces and nephews. Funeral services will be held at First Baptist Church in Arcadia, on Monday, October 25, 2021, at 11:00 a.m. with Bro. Jeff Hoffman officiating, with Marcia DeMoss speaking. Visitation will be held on Sunday, October 24, 2021, from 5:00 until 7:00 p.m. at Rose-Neath Funeral Home in Arcadia.
