1927-2014 AUGUSTA - Douglas A. Stark passed away on April 18, 2014, in Augusta after a long and courageous battle with Parkinson's disease. Doug will be remembered for his loyalty to family and friends, his love of the Marine Corps, his vast knowledge of nature, his respect for the environment and his pride in his grandchildren. Doug was born on Aug. 1, 1927, in Pearl River, N.Y. During high school, Doug excelled in soccer and track. In his free time, Doug spent many carefree days hunting, fishing and camping in the nearby woods. Doug entered the United States Marine Corps in 1945 at the age of 17. He was very proud that he and his two brothers were all Marines. Doug loved the Corps and lived his life by their motto, Semper Fidelis. He particularly enjoyed his time in Hawaii and Puerto Rico and made many close friends he kept in touch with over the next 60-plus years. After serving in the Marine Corps during World War II and Korea, Doug took advantage of the G.I. Bill and pursued a college education. His interests in botany and biology eventually brought him to the University of Maine to study wildlife and forestry. While attending UMO, he met the love of his life, Virginia Doll. They were married Dec. 19, 1953. Doug enjoyed spending time with his new Maine family, hunting and fishing with his wife's relatives, especially his wife's uncle and nephew at Chemo Pond and Field's Pond. After receiving his master's degree, Doug accepted a teaching position at UMO. In 1956, he began working for the Maine Department of Conservation, Bureau of Forestry, a job he loved very much until his retirement in 1988. Doug spent his retirement as grandfather extraordinaire, or "Papa" to his four grandchildren, playing with them and following their activities, serving on the Augusta Tree Board, and volunteering his time and expertise at the Augusta arboretum. Doug Stark is survived by his wife of more than 60 years, Virginia Doll Stark, of Augusta; a daughter, Helen E. Williams and her husband, Barry, of Gardiner; a son, Douglas K. Stark, of Windsor; four grandchildren, Heather Genest and her husband, Keith, of Sidney, Holly Jordan and her husband, Mark, of Sabattus, Haley Williams, of Augusta, and Scott Douglas Williams, of Gardiner; great-grandchildren, Camden Genest and Rocco Scott Jordan; his brother and sister-in law Robert and Millie Stark, of Florida; sisters, Helen Scarpantoni and Ruth Wall, of North Carolina; and several nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his sister Jean Scarpantoni and his brother Artie Stark. A memorial Mass of Christian burial will be celebrated at 9 a.m. on Friday, April 25, at St. Mary of the Assumption Church, Western Avenue, Augusta. Burial with military honors will be at a later time in Maine Veterans' Memorial Cemetery, Augusta. Arrangements are under the care of Plummer Funeral Home, 16 Pleasant St., Augusta.
