While I knew Georgie only from afar (Mary is my DIL), I am so sorry to hear of his death. Mary and family, you have my deepest sympathy. 
Eternal rest grant onto him, O Lord.

I'm so sad and sorry to hear about George. He was the most amazing person. I will always be grateful for his friendship and for his unending support of the independent film community in Salt Lake. He made a huge difference in my life, as I'm sure he did for every other person who knew him.  
My sincerest condolences to the Stark family and to everyone grieving the loss of George. What a truly incredible person he was. Thank you for such a beautiful obituary.

Dear Jason, Shayneh, Jane, George Sr. & family and friends, Oh how the pang of sympathy and grief jolted my soul as I heard your George's name prayed at St. Vincent's on Sunday. I loved sitting next to Jason, Shayneh and sweet girls at church just the week before. You all have touched my heart! I got to meet George 4 summers ago when he and Jason tenderly received my dad into their care. I too am inspired by George's life story; Camino walks, business and community ventures, and his example of Christ's grace & love. May perpetual Light shine upon George, and may God's blessings of comfort enfold you all. You are in my heart.

I met George thru my daughter, Ally Coleman when he hired her to help run BlueStar. Thank you for raising such a kind and generous son. He certainly had an influence for good in her life. May you be blessed as you remember him and his gracious life.

I am so very sorry for your loss. I never had the privilege of meeting Georgie, but it sounds like he lived a full and wonderful life, despite his illness. It sounds like he was a wonderful man who devoted himself to helping others; it is rare to hear of such a kind man. I am sure that he has left many wonderful memories for you to look back on. As you reflect on these memories, please take comfort in the scripture at Psalms 94:17-19 and 2 Thessalonians 2:16,17. May God strengthen you and bring you comfort during this difficult time as we await the fulfillment of his promise of a resurrection. (Acts 24:15; Revelation 21:4) May these sctiptures bring you a sense of peace and joy to your hearts as you begin to heal.


George was one of the finest and kindest men I have ever known. I'm deeply saddened by his untimely passing and will miss him. We biked together. We hiked together. We laughed together. His beautiful smile reflected his beautiful soul. I'm sorry we didn't get together this summer. I tried. I really did. But God had other plans for you. Thank you George. You were one of the very best.

I am heartbroken to have lost such a good friend. Every experience I had with George I left feeling inspired in some way. He was present, a great listener and full of kindness. I will dearly miss those conversations and his sweet smiling face. His legacy will live on because he strived to make our community a better place and myself and everyone he knew will never forget that.

It is with genuine love I send this message to the entire Stark family. My connection to George began over 15 years ago when I met his brother Jason Starks on a visit to Colorado to hang out with his friend Mike Hansey. All three of us had a blast and have been friends ever since! Jason spoke often of George's involvement with SlamDance and while Sundance I attended a rouge music event I think was sponsored by Slamdance which was shut down. It was so much fun, original and gone way too fast! George's departure from this world seems very similar, fun, original—and his life went by way too fast. even for himself since he had so much more he wanted to do. After my visit to Utah, I have continued the creative a path of filmmaking and veryo much like George have many in finshed projects including ifilmfestivals, a place for independent short films. During this past summer, it was with love to be able to give some emotional support to Jason and the Stark family while they were in Colorado during George's treatments. After all these years of hearing about George and his wonderful endeavors, I got to meet George in person, his oldest sister, and his life-long friend Scott on the morning of his passing. To me, he seemed to be preparing for another journey. One with love, and continuous connection with all of those that he loved. Memories are pure, and George will always be with his wonderful family and dear friends.
