Thompson Edward Storey, chair of the Media Studies Department at Belmont University, passed away Wednesday at his home in Old Hickory surrounded by his loving family. He was 62.

 

Born in North Tonawanda, New York in 1955, Thom (aka. Linko) graduated from St. Bonaventure University in Olean, New York. He was a sports reporter for Tonawanda News before attending graduate school at Iowa State.

 

Thom arrived at Belmont in the fall of 1985 to begin the college’s journalism program. Over the course of 32 years of teaching, Thom became one of the school’s more beloved figures, as testified by his students and colleagues. He was awarded the Chaney Distinguished Professor Award, educator of the year by the Southeastern Journalism Conference, and served on the board of the local chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists.

 

Though he taught across a range of subjects, Thom’s specialty was ethics and the sometimes thorny situations journalists can face when covering the news. He turned his love of music- especially the Beatles and Bruce Springsteen- into a popular entertainment journalism track at Belmont. The recent resurgence of vinyl made Storey a rock star as he pulled from his collection of vintage records for his classes.

 

He was a devoted family man. He and his daughter Madison had a love of roller coasters and would seek out the best and fastest. He and his wife Caroline were avid golfers and loved playing different courses together.

 

He is preceded in death by his mother Helen, and his son Joseph. He is survived by his loving wife, Caroline, daughter Madison, father William, brother, Peter (Barb), step-children Thomas, Allison (Johannes), Caroline (Stuart), grandson Layne, granddaughter Blake, nephew Christopher, and niece Rachel.

 

Visitation will be held at Cooks United Methodist Church in Mt. Juliet, Tennessee on Monday January 15, 2018 from 1-4 p.m. A Memorial service will follow at 4:30 p.m.

 

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Thom Storey Scholarship Fund at Belmont University or Cooks United Methodist Church.

Hall, David Charles “Dave”, age 76, of Hermitage, TN, died January 19, 2018. Dave has had a career in the music industry since 1965 and has traveled and performed all over the world with some of country’s biggest artists. Dave also was a Veteran and served our country as a Medic in the Air Force.

 

Dave started his music career playing bass for George Jones. He then played bass, drove the bus (or did both) with several other entertainers during the following years. These include Kitty Wells, Connie Smith, Red White and Bluegrass, The Kendalls, Faron Young, Stu Phillips, The Whites and Doug Stone. Faron Young once referred to Dave as the “FRANK SINATRA of COUNTRY MUSIC” as his tenor voice blended so well with Faron’s voice.

 

Dave also cut a single “We Can Work it Out” as an Exclusive RCA Recording Artist. Along with some friends, they founded the group Foxfire that had a hit single “Fell into Love” that reached #30 on Billboard. Foxfire earned CASHBOX New Singles Vocal Group of the Year in 1979. During that same period, he was involved with publishing companies Raindance Music and Ballpoint Music. Dave was also co-writer on the Conway Twitty #1 hit “I am the Dreamer (You are the Dream)” on both Billboard and Cashbox.

 

Dave really enjoyed working on the publishing side of country music doing royalty accounting (“crunching the numbers”). Over the last decade, he worked as an Executive Advisor with Horipro Entertainment. Dave had the utmost respect for Mr. Kaz Hori, CEO of Horipro because he allowed him to continue being a part of what he loved the most—being involved in “Music”.
