It is with great sadness that Arlington Industries announced the sudden death of its longtime president and owner Tom Stark on the morning of March 6.
Arlington was purchased by his father Eugene Stark, Sr. in 1949. Tom became president of the company after graduating from the University of Florida in 1975.
Tom was born in South Florida on November 9, 1953. He attended the University of Florida where he met his wife, Betty (Elizabeth) and earned his degree in Accounting. He is survived by his wife, Betty, two daughters: Meredith (Camille) Oostwegel and Allison (Aaren) Riley, and three grandsons: Spencer and Winston Oostwegel, and Sawyer Riley; as well as his brother Gene (Jean) and sister Patricia.
Services will be at Kraeer Funeral Home, 1655 University Drive, Coral Springs, FL 33071. (954) 753-8960. Funeral plans will be announced once the arrangements are completed by the family.
Although Arlington is saddened by the loss of Tom Stark the business operation will continue unchanged.
