We sent condolences to the family. We were Robert's pastor in Crooksville, Ohio in the 1960's. We have many great memories of the Starcher family. We pastored the Free Methodist Church from 1959 until 1965. The years pass by but not the memories. God bless and guide the family.

I was saddened to hear of Uncle Robert's passing. I have so many good memories of times we spent together as a family growing up; Chrosymases, reunions etc. His stories and laughter will always bring a smile. All of you are in my thoughts and prayers.
