The Lord called William C. Starr, Jr. home on February 28, 2020 at the age of 85. An extremely loving, loyal and respected family man, he will be greatly missed by his wife of 62 years Esther; his four daughters Carol (Roger) Hutchison, Nancy (Todd) Starr, Lisa (Ludwig) Lettau and Julie (Mark) Beeler; his 12 grandchildren; and his 13 great-grandchildren. Bill was preceded in death by his daughter Linda (Steve) Colucci, who he is now joyously reunited with.

Bill was born on March 25, 1934 in Pueblo, Colorado. He met his wife when they were teenagers in Pueblo, and both attended the University of Colorado Boulder. Bill’s college career was put on hold for a few years while he served in the U.S. Army during the Korean War. Bill and Esther married in 1958 and moved to Honolulu, Hawaii for Esther’s job at Queen’s Hospital, and soon started their large family. Bill completed his college education in 1960 at the University of Hawaii. Several years later, the Starrs returned to Colorado, and Bill began his long and fulfilling career with the U.S. Forest Service. The family relocated several times to Wyoming, South Dakota, and Nebraska with Bill’s job and made lifelong friends in each location. Bill, Esther and their five girls settled back in Colorado (Denver) in 1976. The Starrs have been members of Phillips United Methodist Church in Lakewood for many years.

Bill will be interred at Fort Logan National Cemetery in Denver after a family Celebration of Life gathering.
