Lester F. "Les" Stark, 84 years; born February 28, 1935 in Chicago, IL. Beloved husband for 64 years to Arlene Stark, nee Bayer. Loving father to his four daughters, Janet (Don) Meuzelaar, Katherine (Lee) Reinbolt, Linda (Tony) Amaro, and Cindy (Mike) Fisher. Les was the cherished Papa of 11 and the dearest great-grandpa of 17.
Les worked in construction for many, many years. He worked on building homes, but his greatest love was designing furniture for his own family. He had a great passion for building toy boxes for his great-grandchildren. He also loved scaring the grandchildren on Halloween at the parties thrown by "Papa and Grandma". Les crafted many items for Christ Lutheran Church through the years, including specialty tables still used today at the altar. Les was so loved and will be greatly missed. Mere words cannot explain the love his family had for him.
