John Barth Storck, who owned an industrial parts business, died of cancer Monday at his Glen Arm home. He was 65.

Born in Baltimore and raised in Lutherville, he was a 1961 Calvert Hall College High School graduate. He earned a business administration degree at what is now Towson University and studied at Pennsylvania State University.

He consolidated two businesses, J&M Sales and Edwards Distributors, into an industrial parts business at his home. He sold filters, engines and folk-lift parts to shipping lines at the port of Baltimore. He traded under his name, Storck.

A memorial service will be held at 1 p.m. tomorrow at the Long Green Volunteer Fire Company, 4506 Long Green Road in Glen Arm.

Survivors include his wife of 38 years, the former Mary Margaret Schaefer; three sons, John Storck Jr. of Red Lion, Pa., Michael Edward Storck of Parkville and Charles Patrick Storck of Baltimore; two brothers, Bud Storck of San Diego and Mark Storck of Westminster; two sisters, Patricia Ingless of Congers, N.Y., and Marjorie DaVanzo of Buffalo, N.Y.; and three grandchildren.
