---Stark, John (3 June 1869 – 19??)
JOHN STARK, who is one of the substantial and reliable business men of Wausau, is engaged in the confectionery business as manufacturer and retailer, with attractive quarters at No. 604 Third Street. He was born at Milwaukee, Wis., June 3, 1869, and is a son of Matthew and Anna Stark.
John Stark was reared in his native city and in boyhood had the excellent advantages offered by the fine public schools there. When it came time for him to learn a self supporting trade he chose that of candy-making, beginning at the bottom and learning every detail. He came to Wausau in November, 1901 and embarked in the confectionery and ice cream business and has prospered, manufacturing all the goods he handles and being thus assured of their cleanliness and wholesomeness. His heavy trade gives evidence that the public appreciates the care he thus exercises and admires his fine displays of choice confections.
Mr. Stark was married at Wausau to Miss Anna Jager of this city. He is identified with the fraternal organizations, the Elks and the Eagles. As a citizen he is law abiding and public spirited but takes no very active part in political campaigns.
