Ellis "Skeeter" Stark, 74, passed away suddenly March 28, 2020. Born in Louisville on September 28, 1945, Skeeter was the only child of the late Evelyn (Walker) and Charles Stark.

He worked for over 35 years at Akzo Nobel as a chemist in their clear wood coatings division.

Skeeter was a kind, intelligent, hard working person, who loved the outdoors. He was an avid fisherman, played tennis, and took up golf in his retirement, which he pursued with a passion. He was a gardener known for his tomatoes and an excellent cook. His true talent and passion was in his woodworking skills, refinishing, repairing, framing, cabinetry, wooden puzzles and his beautiful decorative boxes. He was a true craftsman.

Left to cherish his memory is his wife and soul mate, Beverly (Crook) Stark; his very special cousin, Sharon Hurley; sister-in-laws, Brenda (Dennis) Thomas and Theresa Mobley; daughter, Carrie Johnson; niece, Chris Primm; nephews, Brian (Mandy) Calhoun, David (Chris) Thomas, Gregory Thomas and Hunter Mobley; great nephews, Jackson, Jake, Sebastion, Carter and Corbin and many dear friends.

Many fond memories. Double dating in your 1950 hot rod ford. Getting stuck in the mud in some guys backyard. Linda and Donna were petrified but you charmed the homeowner into pulling us out of the mud. Nice job buddy. I'm so far away, but my heart still aches. RIP.
