Laurence Gordon Stark

October 10, 1939-November 13, 2015

Laurence Gordon Stark passed away after a long illness on November 13, 2015.

Predeceased by his mother Isabelle, he is survived by his loving wife of 52 years, Heather, his son Adam (Kira) and his daughter Jennifer (Jeff).

Larry was born in Vancouver, B.C. on October 10, 1939. He worked as a young man in the CBC newsroom and as a film editor on the TV series “The Beachcombers”. He moved with his family to the Comox Valley in 1979 and became a trophy-winning gardener and a dabbler in real estate.

He is fondly remembered for his creativity, mischievous sense of humour, quick wit, and his love for animals. He was a wonderful husband and father.

Many thanks to the caring staff at Cumberland Lodge. A private family memorial will be held. Donations in his memory to the SPCA.
