The owner and operator of Starr Landscaping company for 26 years in Connecticut and Vermont, Starr took great pride in his work and customers’ properties. He found great joy in simple tasks like cutting the lawn around his beloved Sandgate home.

Above all else, he adored his daughter Isobella (Bella) with whom he spent countless hours in play and developing their mutual love of art.
