Henry Edgar Starks, 81 of Hillsboro, passed away on September 18, 2019 at the Peyton Hospice House in Lewisburg. Born October 2, 1937 in Mill Point, WV to the late Harry and Mary Boblett Starks. He was preceded in death by daughter, Barbara Lynn Starks.

Edgar married Doris Ann Dorman Starks, the love of his life on December 18, 1959. The couple were married 59 years where they lived mostly in Hillsboro.

Edgar was a U.S. Army Veteran, and a member of the Oak Grove Presbyterian Church. He began his career as a construction worker, along with working for the Department of Highway and he completed his career at Island Creek Coal Company where he was a highly skilled welder.

Edgar enjoyed helping others and was an active member of his community. He assisted with the organization of the Hillsboro Fire Department. Later he coordinated and coached the little league baseball team in Hillsboro known as the Braves.

Farming, hunting, gardening, mowing his lawn and simply being outdoors were all things he enjoyed. Wood working was ultimately his favorite pass time of all. It brought him joy and pleasure working and creating with wood. Some of his donated woodwork can be found publicly displayed throughout the county.

Edgar was a man of faith and put all his trust in the Lord. When Edgar received this last diagnosis of cancer, he made the choice to decline the treatment regime and put all of his trust in the Lord. Edgar held his faith and trust strong until the Lord called him home on September 18, 2019.

Survivors include his wife Doris Ann Dorman Starks, daughters, Bonnie Lee and husband John of Winchester, VA, and Lois Ann Wilfong and husband Charlie of Hillsboro, grandson, Charles Hunter Wilfong, and multiple nieces and nephews.

Funeral services will be held 11:00 AM on Saturday, September 21, 2019 at the Lantz Funeral Home in Buckeye with Pastor David Lee officiating. Burial will follow in the McNeel Cemetery in Hillsboro with Military Graveside Rites by the Pocahontas County Veterans Honor Corp.

Visitation will be held Friday, September 20, 2019 from 6-8 PM at the Lantz Funeral Home.

In lieu of flowers donations of sympathy may be made to the Hillsboro Fire Department or the Oak Grove Presbyterian Church.
