ALEXIS “LEXI” NICHOLE STARK-BORK, age 3, unexpectedly passed from this life on Saturday, November 28, 2009, at Parkview Hospital. Lexy was born to Jessica Stark and Allen Bork on July 15, 2006 in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

Lexi is pictured here with her grandfather Clay Stark. She was much loved and she loved much. Her favorite color was pink and she was particularly fond of bananas, cashew nuts and shrimp. One of her favorite things to do was hide from old Pa-Pa (great-grandfather John) and make him find her and she liked to sit in his big leather chair whenever he got up and then insist that he should sit in the cat’s chair whenever he returned. Lexi was in the process of learning her ABC’s, and numbers and had already learned to draw circles, squares and rectangles. She told her great-grandmother Kay that she was going to draw a picture of old Pa-Pa and give him a rectangular head.
