Thanks to our WEST HIGH CLASS of 1969 for posting this obituary of my good friend and fellow classmate JOHN SCOTT STARK or SCOTT as we always called him. Fellow classmate ERIC FRITZ, JAMES WESTERHOF, and I were always very close to SCOTT and we all lived within a few blocks of each other just north of the Mississippi Valley Fairgrounds. I will miss not being able to see SCOTT at future reunions. GOD BLESS SCOTT and all our WEST HIGH CLASSMATES that have passed on to the next KINGDOM!

Very sorry to hear of Scott's passing. I went to school with him from grade school through high school. He was a nice guy. I am very sorry for the family and their loss.     Jeff Shirk

So sad to hear about Scotty. He was always so active in DeMolay and volunteered to help at all the activities. Sounds like he met someone wonderful and had a very fulfilling life that ended too soon. Our condolences to his family. Al and Debbie Skillicorn
