Victor was born on November 24, 1929 to Vernon and Elsie (Roggeman) Storm at Walnut Grove, MN. He attended country school through the 8th grade and graduated from Holloway High School in 1948. He was united in marriage to Delores Schliemann in 1950. Victor and Delores began their married life farming but in 1957, they moved to Moorhead, MN and Victor went into sales. He sold insurance, water softeners, fuller brush and mobile homes. Eventually they moved Minot, ND where he became a sales manager in mobile homes and later going into real estates sales. It was then that he started his 50 year career in income tax preparation. In 1963, Victor became a warehouse manager for Tempo Store and in 1965 he and his family moved to Tintah, MN when he took on yet another career challenge as a partner in the Liquor Store until 1978. Not willing to take it easy yet, Victor started a taping, texture and painting business where he and Delores worked side by side until retirement.
