BRUNSWICK — Howard H. Storer, 88, died March 23.
Born in Brunswick to John G. and Alta M. Wilson Storer, he attended Brunswick schools and graduated from Brunswick High School in 1942. He earned a bachelor’s degree in business from the University of Maine in 1949.
During World War II, Storer served in the Air Transport Command of the U.S. Army Air Corps, working as a radio operator on C-47s and C-54s in the Pacific.

Storer lived in Brunswick until 1981 when he and his wife built a home in Arrowsic. In 1999, they moved to Topsham and their final move was to the Westrum House there, which they both enjoyed. They traveled extensively and Storer was nationally recognized for some of his travel photographs.
