Timothy “Tim” William Stark died after a complex surgery and a long battle with his heart at Tucson Medical Center on February 3rd, 2021 in Tucson, AZ at the age of 67.
Tim was born on July 25th, 1953 in Emmetsburg, IA to Nila Jean Stark (Vanderhoff) and Bobby Keith Stark. He graduated from Horton High School and went on to live his life full of laughter, loyal friendships and complex relationships. Tim really enjoyed his relationship with his siblings and had so much fun teasing all of them any chance he had! His main career was a Superintendent with Berkel & Co. for over 25 years in total, owned and operated Stark Fence Co in Winchester, KS and also owned and operated T’s Hilltop, Tonganoxie, KS. Tim decided to finally settle in Tucson, AZ in June 2019 to be near his Son Christopher Stark and companion Susan Kramer after his retirement with Berkel & Co in Houston, TX. After moving to Tucson he valued his time with his only 2 grandchildren and his long¬time companion Susan Kramer. Tim’s sense of humor, kind spirit and vibrant life style will be missed by many.
