Retired U.S. Navy Cmdr. Robin "Bob" Lee Starck, 83, passed away Wednesday, January 27, 2021, with his beloved wife of 58 years, Carol Starck (nee Lentz), at his side. Born in San Pedro, California, he was the son of the late Navy Cmdr. Louis Charles Starck and Lovie Crabtree Starck.

Bob attended the U.S. Naval Academy, after graduating from Bremerhaven American High School in Germany. A member of the 12th Company, he graduated from the Academy with the Class of 1959 and went on to serve in the Silent Service, aboard submarines. He rose to become executive officer of USS Lewis and Clark and then commanding officer aboard the USS Casimir Pulaski. He retired from the Navy in 1982 and earned his MBA from Old Dominion University before working as a defense contractor. Bob was a member of the Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd, where he served on the vestry and went on several mission trips locally and abroad. He enjoyed numerous hobbies, including Native American history and art, sailing, photography, traveling, biking and model trains. Bob also loved going to Smartmouth, Elation and other local breweries. He was a devoted husband, loving father and proud grandfather.

He will be remembered most for the years of happiness, unwavering companionship and love he brought to his family. In addition to his wife Carol, he leaves behind a daughter, Michele Starck Dinsmore (Christopher) of Baltimore, Maryland; two sons, Stephen Starck of Munich, Germany, and Michael Starck (Juli) of Longmont, Colorado; four sisters, Barbara Starck, Shirley Goldberg, Rosemary Kavadias and Julianne Cronin; eight grandchildren, Eleanor, Grayson, Hattie, Lily, Amelia, Stella, Audrey and Hilda; his godchildren Betsy Shiner and Charles Goldberg; and many, many other family and friends who will miss him dearly. He was preceded in death by a brother, Edward G. Starck (Pamela).

A private family memorial service will be held, with inurnment at the U.S. Naval Academy Columbarium at a future date. Everyone who remembers him is asked to celebrate Bob's life by raising a glass of their favorite beer in memory of our beloved Pops. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Church of the Good Shepherd (7400 Hampton Blvd, Norfolk, VA 23505) or Children's Hospital of the King's Daughters (601 Childrens Lane, Norfolk, VA 23507).
