Carl Oliver Strom, age 87, of Spring Valley, died Oct. 2, 2005, at the Spring Valley Health Care Center.

The son of Albert and Clara (Johnson) Strom, he was born March 5, 1918, in the town of Eau Galle. He was baptized and confirmed in the Christian faith and as a young man belonged to St. John's Lutheran Church in Spring Valley.

Mr. Strom has been a member of Gilman Lutheran Church, Spring Valley, for about to 60 years.

He was raised in Eau Galle and attended Highland Ridge School.

On June 4, 1938, he married Helen Brown at the Brown home farm in the town of Spring Lake. The couple farmed with Mrs. Strom's parents until the mid 1940s when they moved to the town of Gilman.

After about 30 years of farming, Mr. Strom sold the cows and started driving truck for Helgeson Trucking, retiring around 1990.

Music was an important part of Mr. Strom's life, according to his family, and as children he and his brother Almer performed for various events and was a member of "The Strom's Good Tymes" Band. Over the years they played throughout western Wisconsin at parties, weddings, and nursing homes.

After Mrs. Strom's death in 1988, Mr. Strom continued to perform until just a couple years ago.

Preceding him in death were his parents, Albert and Clara Strom; wife, Helen; sister, Olga Strom; brother, Marvin Strom; and son-in-law, Donald Johnson.
