About Stu Starkey
“People don’t realize how important and valuable communities are.
I was lucky enough to meet the longest-living human beings in the world when a truck manufacturer showed me around Japan. Something about the visit made me want to learn more. Why do these people live so long?
Elders move in with their grandchildren and pass on the family culture — the recipes, the stories, the experiences. This sense of community and taking care of each other really resonated with me. I couldn’t stop thinking about it and kept reading more about it once I was home. I told people the story — and watched their eyes light up with inspiration.
What makes a difference for these people, and these communities, is purpose.
It made me think about my own purpose — and I knew then that we had the chance to do something truly outstanding with the platform Two Small Men gives us. This birthed our Community Involvement efforts.” – Stu
