Starkey Family Fund

The Starkey Family tragically lost their husband, father, uncle, and friend, Tim, in an accident on Monday, December 16 in Los Gatos, CA. Tim Starkey brought so much joy to the lives around him and had a heart of gold. Tim shared his sense of humor with everyone he encountered and was happiest cooking a meal during the holidays or a Sunday night dinner with a curated soundtrack.
The Starkey family is grieving with family and friends while also working through the repercussions of the accident and loss of Tim. The family has had a tremendous amount of love and support offered to them and has a long and difficult journey ahead. In order to help ease the stress of the financial burden that lies ahead, we have created this fund for Kathleen, Bridget and Joe. They are so grateful for the love, support and contributions from their village.

The family would like to invite any and all of you to share as many fond memories of Tim as you would like in the comments below.

More details on a Celebration of Life in the Bay Area in early 2020 will follow -- Tim will want you there to toast with a Marg or Chardonnay.
