Will, fought a hard battle with Parkinson’s Disease for many years, and finally won! Will, left this world Wednesday, December 3, 2014 at 9:24 p.m. with his true love, Mickie by his side at his home.
Will, was born in Gilmer, Texas to Othar and Grace Starks. The family of 10: Othar, Grace, Betty, Will, Lena, Othar Wayne, Wayland, Jody Paul and Johnny moved to Riverton, Wyoming for a short time before moving to Salt Lake City, Utah where Don was born to complete their family.
Will, was a very hard worker his entire life. He was a mechanic for over 40 years, with the last 26 years owning his own business “Will’s Auto Repair” with his son Mike. He loved his business, but his greatest love was his beautiful wife Mickie of 54 years, son Mike (Karen) and granddaughters; Amanda (Nick), Katie and Abby. Next to his family, he loved fast cars and motorcycles. Will, spent 15 years making sure Mike had the fastest motorcycle on the track. He always had a fast, good looking car or truck. He had too many to count! Will, was very generous, always helping people with their cars. He will be greatly missed by all that knew him. Will, was the toughest, strongest, honest, loving and kind man to live on this earth.
