Stark, Paul
Paul Stark passed away on December 27, 2017 of complications from a brief illness, exacerbated by the hopeless condition of the Cleveland Browns, at Stein Hospice, Sandusky. A proud native of Mansfield, Ohio, he lived for more than 30 years in Columbus where he and his wife, Susan, raised their family. He spent his later and happiest years in his adopted home town of Huron, Ohio. A graduate of Mansfield High School, Paul remained a lifelong Tygers' fan. His amazing work ethic and natural mathematical gifts led him to a career as a surveyor, spending most of his career with Kokosing Construction Co. Paul was a devoted and loyal husband, father, grandfather, friend, coworker and neighbor. He is survived by his beloved wife of 52 years, Susan; children, John (Dana) Stark of Sunbury, OH, Tom (Tammy) Stark of Loganville, GA and Molly Stark of Westerville, OH; grandchildren, Tyler, Cole, Shadrach, Jada, and Magdalena; a brother, Jim (Sandra) Stark of Rome, GA; a sister, Mary (Jerry) Wharton, of FL; and several nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his parents, Robert & Jacquelyn (Hamlin) Stark. Paul passed just before the Browns were prepared to turn the corner but had many well-earned blessings. Paul believed in paying it forward, and the goodwill he leaves behind will endure long after he's gone. Paul requested no funeral service, but a celebration of his life will be held at a later date to be determined. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The Friendly House of Mansfield, 380 N. Mulberry St, Mansfield, 44902; Stein Hospice Services, 1200 Sycamore Line, Sandusky, 44870; or to Victory Kitchen 1613 Hayes Ave, Sandusky 44870. Online condolences may be shared at www.fosterfh.com. Foster Funeral Home & Crematory, Huron, is handling the arrangements.

I don't have any contacts in Paul's circle of friends so I just now heard about his passing. He was in charge of surveying for Kokosing Construction Co. and I was a construction surveyor working for him. He was an extraordinary boss for 10 years and remained a very close friend of mine for the rest of his life. I am truly sorry for your loss and I will miss this great human being.

Just today I heard about Paul-we were good friends in high school and a few years after. In fact he was a usher in our wedding. He sent me a email back in Sept. asking how I was , never got back to him-wasn't doing well at the time so sorry I didn't get back to him! God's blessing on his family. He was one of the very best

Marina and I are sorry for your loss. We saw the article in the Dayton Daily News. I first met Paul in Mansfield when we both worked for Holderman Construction on the Rte. 30 Bypass. He was a very good friend.

Paul aka Boss was indeed a special friend!!!! He became a dear friend while building Clintonville Academy with so many wonderful friends!!!
The group of special guys enjoyed not only building the Academy, but fun fishing trips, fun Monte Carlo nights at Clintonville Academy, parties at each other's homes, and having SOS every Saturday morning at the CARWASH, which was one of my Chuck's favorite moments in life!!!
I know you are in heaven, dearest Paul, with your good friend, Chuck!!!
Susie, you and your family, are in my heart and prayers. I was blessed when you and Paul came into my life!!!
Love from Rosie!!!!

I am so pleased that Paul and I were able to resume our friendship after a few years of retirement. Paul was a "class act". I'll miss him.
