Wyman Stark

Wyman Ray Stark born to William Henry and Laura Rose (Thoene) Stark on April 6, 1935, and passed on July 24, 2019.

Wyman worked for Camp & Mebane Cattle Co. for 15 years after he served in the Army and owned Foster Freeze/Generals Headquarters for 27 years. He was married to Leoda Sherrill Stark for 42 years before she passed.

He has two children, Russell Stark and Denise McCaslin; four grandchildren; and seven great grandchildren. He has been married to Mary (Cartnal) Stark for 17 years, and she has two children, Ryan Cartnal (Joelle) and Carin Cathey (Jason); six grandchildren; and one great granddaughter. They all called him "Pop."

Wyman was a man of his word -- you could always count on him for anything. He said he could fix anything but a broken heart.

He will be missed by all who had the honor of knowing him. Special thanks to Hoffmann Hospice & Peters Funeral Home for all they did for Wyman.
