Remembering John Stark

On the evening of August 2, 2014, John Stark died of a heart attack while enjoying the simple pleasure of watching TV with his family. His death was unexpected and a total shock to everyone. He was a wonderful husband, father, son, brother, uncle, and friend to those who knew him. He was full of life and always had a smile, a jovial laugh, and a knack for playing practical jokes on everyone. He would give the shirt off his back to help someone when he could.

John was self-employed in the marketing field when his life was cut short so unexpectedly. He was also a United States Airforce veteran stationed in Turkey and Italy during his overseas campaign. And not unlike most today, he was fighting debt and trying to gain control of his bills, etc.  His beautiful wife had just endured painful hip surgery, and was in the process of recuperating from that. Still in her recovery, she recently found out she had lost her job as a nurse. She has begun her search for work, but is finding it extremely difficult while still grieving the loss of her husband and still dealing with the after-affects of hip surgery. The loss of both incomes has been a devastating result, while in the meantime, the bills continue to pile up.

If you can find it in your heart to help this family, it would be appreciated so much. They just need some much needed breathing room until they can get back on their feet. They are really struggling financially and we are trying to help any way we can, so thank you so much for your consideration. The funds being requested will help the family John loved dearly take care of the unexpected expenses now hanging over them and will help them get back to a point of possibly being able to handle the everyday things.
