Paree Starks (2000 - 2022)
Paree Starks was taken from us on September 25, 2022.
Paree was involved with PPA at the City Juvenile Detention Center, City Justice Center, and finally Hogan Street. He was a gifted artist with a passion for poetry.
Paree went home last year, and kept in touch with some PPA staff. He was exploring the idea of getting some of his poetry published.
In a writing exercise in 2018, Paree described himself:
1: I'm smart
2: I'm funny
3: I'm brave
4: I'm goofy
He was all of these things and more. He will be dearly missed.
An open door
Intentionally move forward
Never give up.
