There is no way to get this information from ServiceController. I recommend that you follow this code:

Basically you will loop through event log entries 'cause that's where you can accurately find information on a properly developed Services' whereabouts.

public List<Hashtable> GetEventEntryByEvent(
            ref string logName, ref string machineName, 
            ref string source)
        {
            try
            {
                //Create our list
                List<Hashtable> events = new List<Hashtable>();

                //Connect to the EventLog of the specified machine
                EventLog log = new EventLog(logName, machineName);

                //Now we want to loop through each entry
                foreach (EventLogEntry entry in log.Entries)
                {
                    //If we run across one with the right entry source
                    //  we create a new Hashtable
                    //  then we add the Message,Source, and TimeWritten values
                    //  from that entry
                    if (entry.Source == source)
                    {
                        Hashtable entryInfo = new Hashtable();

                        entryInfo.Add("Message", entry.Message);
                        entryInfo.Add("InstanceId", entry.InstanceId);
                        entryInfo.Add("Source", entry.Source);
                        entryInfo.Add("TimeWritten", entry.TimeWritten);
                        // You can also replace TimeWritten with TimeGenerated
                        //Add this new Hashtable to our list
                        events.Add(entryInfo);

                        entryInfo = null;
                    }
                }
                //Return the results and process these results to see when it was last time started
                return events;
            }
            catch (Exception ex)
            {
                //Display an error message
                return null;
            }
        }
