In the early morning hours of April 18 2019 David Henry Starke peacefully and quietly slipped away from us in his sleep. Dave was born son of William Chris Starke and Milded Carol Starke in Sheridan, WY on January 27, 1943. He is survived by his daughters Carie Ann Starke, Carolea Starke-Metcalf and Darlene Starke; his, brother, William Starke and his grandchildren Trysten David Starke, Heather Aske, Nathan Peterson Sharaya, Peterson. He was preceded by his brothers John Jon Starke, Richard Starke and Robert Rusty Starke. 

Dave went to school in Idaho at Priest River High School as part of the class of “62” where he made many lifelong friends he still gathered with every year. He spent most of his life in the Ironworker trade where he traveled the world making many friends and experiencing a full adventurous life. He was an amazing teacher, not only in his field but in life lessons. Dave always had an ear and wise words for those wanting his guidance. He was a man like no other who feared nothing and enjoyed life to its fullest. He found joy in being out in nature just soaking it all in but was in his paradise when he was fishing.  “Work hard, so you can play hard”, he would say, and he lived his life by those words. He will be missed greatly by so many people that were lucky enough to share in his life.

There will be a celebration of Dave’s life on his property in Kennewick on June 8th at noon with the property being left open till the 9th for those who would like to stay and share even more memories of this amazing man.

Guestbook for

David H. Starke


  • My heart broke when heard of Starke passing. We lived down on 23rd and Rainier. We met him one day when he was helping his neighbor. Who didn't he help??? What a guy! He would come down and sit on our back patio and chat. We would have a drink and he would have his cig! Of course he had his Lampson hat on. When I baked I would take him down goodies. Someday I would leave them in a bag hanging on his door. What a big yard, just like his heart. Full of love and life. I am sure he didn't know a stranger. And boy of boy those Friday card parties! Joel would stop by once in awhile to play and did he ever come home with the stories. I don't think a fish ever got away from him. My friend I know that Joel is so excited to have you in the heavens with him. Party on and know those you left behind love you to the moon and back. You will be in my heart forever. Love ya buddy!
