On Friday June 8, 2018 Dwain Starks, 52, died after riding a lawn mower that crashed into a pond at Rocky Fork Hunt and Country Club, where he was an employee.

Divers pulled Stark from the water, he was taken to OhioHealth Grant Medical, and later pronounced dead.

The incident is still under investigation.

The family has set up a GoFundMe for funeral expenses and to take care of his 18-year-old daughter:

Dwain's father, Thomas Starks, says “Dwain’s daughter just graduated high school three weeks ago and we had a birthday party for her in April when she turned 18.”

He added that he would miss Dwain’s weekly phone calls.

Friends and family agree that what will be missed most is Dwain’s smile.

His girlfriend, Trina J. Johnson said it was what reeled her in, “There was something about his smile.”
