    I would like to express my deepest condolences to Richard Starke’s family. May you find comfort knowing that Richard Starke is in God’s memory and his beautiful promise in Isaiah 25:8 to soon cease all death and suffering. May Jehovah bring you comfort and peace during this difficult time.

  2. Suzan Starke Davison says

    Thank you for taking care of Uncle Dick during his last days. I have many wonderful memories of you all, and wish I was closer to the family. Ben and I send prayers your way, and the memories we share, such as Uncle Dick, Allan & Jean’s visit to attend our wedding, Teresa & Jon’s visit during their move to Washington D.C., and Uncle Dick’s visit to our home one summer. We enjoyed visiting Uncle Dick in Burlington in 1999. We wish you all peace during this time.

    What a handsome young pilot. The Starke family was such good neighbors at Valley City. My sympathy to the family. Mary Bertram Schradick

    I would like to express my condolences to Dick’s family. I knew Dick and his son Tony back during my Air Force days in Minot in the early 70s. I spent many days eating fried chicken livers and having a few beers at the Idle Hour with him. My fondest memory of him is when he invited me to go deer hunting with him, Tony and Swartz (the Lab) and was able to kill my first deer. He was a true friend and will remain in my memories for ever.
