Roy Elmer Stark

April 25, 1933 – June 21, 2019
Roy passed away on June 21, 2019 with his wife, Barb, next to him. He was born in Lamont, Alberta on April 25, 1933, the second of four children. In November 1945, Roy’s family moved to Chilliwack, BC, to join his grandparents when he was 12 years old. After completing school, he was hired by Dairyland where he worked as a valued employee for 42 years. In 1962 Roy met Barb, and after many years of dating, married in March of 1974. They spent their time skiing, traveling the world and enjoying themselves. Roy was fascinated with mathematical problems and law. He spent many hours reading, researching and heightening his knowledge. Roy was an engaging storyteller with an infectious belly laugh and will be greatly missed. He leaves behind his wife Barb of 45 years, his older sister Verda and younger bother Harvey. He was preceded in death by his parents, brother Stan and nephews Robert and Gary Charles. Thank you for the care given by Dr. Basson, Dr. Klaus and the staff of CGH. In lieu of flowers donations to the Chilliwack General Hospital would be greatly appreciated. A celebration of life will be held for Roy on July 13, 2019 at the Clubhouse, 6001 Promontory Rd from 2-5.
