Neil Starke passed away unexpectedly Thursday, March 21, 2024. He was born September 27, 1951, to the late Neil Sr. and Gladys (Schuster) Starke.

He attended Oshkosh West High School, graduating in 1971. For 25 years Neil worked at Park View Health Center in various roles, and then at Pacur Manufacturing for 10 years before retiring. Neil was very proud of being a friend with Bill W. for 43 years. He enjoyed making other people laugh even when his jokes were bad. Neil also enjoyed riding motorcycles, fishing, and gambling.

While working at Park View Health Center, he met Judith Brouillard and they were married on May 16, 1998. Although they later divorced due to his inner demons, they remained close friends. He would often tell her that she was the love of his life and wished he wouldn’t have divorced her.

Neil is survived by his ex-wife, Judy; his daughter; sister and brother-in-law; several nieces and nephews; and his close friends, Nancy and Dave Ellefson.

If you wish, donations in Neil’s name can be made to the Oshkosh Area Humane Society; a place Neil adopted several animals from, including his latest cat, Zeke. Donations can also be made to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. Depression and mental illness are very real. If you are ever in need of help, the Suicide and Crisis lifeline provides 24/7 free and confidential support at the national number 988 or 988lifeline.org.

Mueller Funeral Home-Winneconne is assisting the family. If you wish, please submit online condolences/memories to muellerfh.net.
