DonAllan Starke Obituary

DonAllan C. Starke, 89 of Nashotah, passed away on Friday, March 8, 2024, at his home.

DonAllan was born on July 10, 1934, in Milwaukee, WI.  He attended high school in Oconomowoc and began his working career soon after.  On December 28, 1968, he married Sylvia Hall in Lake Mills, WI.  The couple enjoyed life on Okauchee Lake together for 55 years.  Activities they enjoyed include boating, swimming, and fishing.  Don loved to spend time outdoors - either hunting, being near the water, or attending car shows with his friends.  He was a notably positive man, never met a person he didn’t like, and made sure he treated people with kindness and respect, even when it was undeserving.  A goodman, who was respected and admired by many, will be dearly missed.

“Good night, sweet prince.  May flights of angels sing thee to thy rest.” –  William Shakespear

“Goodbye, my hero.  I’ll see you again..” – wife, Sylvia Starke

He is survived by: wife Sylvia Starke of Nashotah, daughter Deborah (Micheal) Lindemann of Williams Bay; granddaughters Heather (John), Heidi (Bryan), and Jennifer (Jeff); 7 great-grandchildren; and other family members and friends.

He is preceded in death by his son Scott in 2002 and other family members.

A memorial service will be held at 12:00PM on Friday, April 5, 2024, at the Olsen-Gibson Funeral Home with Sylvia’s cousin Rev. Edward Vidizki presiding.  Visitation will be on Friday from 11:00AM until the time of service at the funeral home.  He will be laid to rest at Rock River Cemetery at a later date.
