Starling was a caring, faithful person who was always willing to lend a hand when asked. He was a firm believer to giving back to society where he would donate to numerous charities. He was very involved with his church when he was a Sunday school teacher and a worship leader. Starling was very dependable but never one to brag about anything. He was a very fun person to know very stubborn but you loved him anyway. He was a loving father, grandfather and friend who will be greatly missed.
