  1. MY NAME IS LOIS WEBSTER AND DR. STORSTEEN WAS MY DR. FOR YEARS. I AM SO SORRY ABOUT HIS PASSING. HE WAS SUCH A GOOD DR. AND KIND PERSON. HE WAS THE DR. WHO FOUND OUT I WAS A DIABETIC. HE FOUND MY PROBLEM RIGHT AWAY. HE WILL BE DEEPLY MISSED. I KNOW HE IS IN HEAVEN WITH NO PAIN. AGAIN ,I AM VERY SORRY. LOIS

  2. I worked with Dr. Storsteen for 7 years, not only was he my boss he was a freind who was always there to listen. He was a very caring man, he will be very deeply missed by many people. Send my thoughts to all his family.

  3. To the Family, Friends, and Relatives of Dr. Oliver Storsteen I would like to extend my condolences. Through my friendship with Erik I have come to know Dr. Storsteen (although I have only met him once or twice) as a kind, fair, understanding, inquisitive, lover of life and an immense patriarch.

  4. In my 14 years of working in the office for Dr. Storsteen I fondly remember him as the most caring physician you could ask for. I know he will be remembered with love by all who knew him. My condolences to his family.

  5. Dr Storsteen was our family doctor many years in Torrance. I could always count on him to tell me the truth. He had a very gentle manner. He will be missed.

  6. I was so saddened to learn that Dr. Storsteen has left us. We\’ve lost a man of integrity, skill, compassion, and honesty. I\’ve searched and failed to \’replace\’ him but happy he had time with his family. Years ago I picked my new doctor from the phone book never realizing that I\’d find the only doctor I would trust completely. Though I saw him rarely, I was always impressed with his warmth and honesty. I remember having a problem with my hand that had gone on for years. He admitted he wasn\’t sure what it was and pulled out a book we studied together. He said “well, let\’s try this”, and the problem went away. He answered his own phone, did his own x-rays, and sat on a low stool to talk — he was a rarity and I miss him greatly. Thank you for sharing him with us. Patricia Dunlap

  8. Through my friendship with Karen Dexter, Dr. Storsteen\’s daughter, I send my condolences to his family. Dr. Storsteen will be missed. you are all in my prayers
