In memory of Jack Stark - a tireless community champion

Sad to see the passing of Jack Stark in today's Nairnshire. He was my predecessor as Chairman of Auldearn Community Council; a tireless worker and champion for his community and a man who always conducted himself in an efficient and positive fashion but unfailingly courteous and well regarded. In partnership with Sandy Park and his fellow councillors he oversaw many local improvements ; the refurbishment of the two village halls, new paths around the village and the establishment of the Auldearn Trust. He was always ready to help and advise and will be sadly missed.Service to be held on Fri. 9th 12-30 at the U.R.C.

Jack was a first class man.

He kept even the most boisterous Auldearn Community Council meetings in check, was a genius at completing any kind of grant application form , called a spade a spade when required to do so but wasn't afraid to pick one up and dig when required.

The village is, without any doubt, a better place because of his tremendous efforts over the years, and a poorer place now that he's left us.

Would Jack of been related at all to The Mr Stark that used to be our headmaster in Millbank back in the late 60's/70's ?
