  1. Praying for comfort for Deborah and the family. I agree with Jill’s note, Mr. Stark was one of the best teachers I had too! I was in the class (1982) that had him for a teacher for three consecutive years (6th-8th grades) at Fred S. Engle Middle School. I was afraid of him due to his sterness, but there was real teaching in his classroom. I lived on State Road and often walked home after sports practice. One day on my walk home, he stopped his car and asked me if I was mastering a topic that I was clearly having difficulty with. He had a good heart and cared about his student’s learning.

  2. My prayers to the family. I had Mr Stark as a math teacher many years ago at Fred S Engle. One of the best teachers I had. I can still see him walking around with his yard stick.

  3. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
