John Philip Stark recently passed away at the age of 73. Phil worked at Carleton for 33 years with many different titles, beginning in 1980 as the Director of Media Services and retiring in 2013 as the Technical Coordinator for Events in College Relations. Phil was not only technically skilled but also cared deeply about each event happening well. He often worked evenings and weekends to help make last minute programs come off smoothly or coax finicky sound and lighting systems into working. He did it all so well that most people didn’t notice his presence.
Phil was also dedicated to Carleton and its faculty, staff, and students and appreciated the college’s quirky side. He will be greatly missed. At Phil’s request, mo memorial service will be held.
