Dennis C. Starr

November 23, 1957 ~ December 2, 2020 (age 63)


Denny Starr, 63, passed away December 2, 2020.  He was a true historian, who loved music, the military and giving to others unconditionally.  He was a true “sports fanatic” and lover of nature and his cat Betsy who had his heart. The little things meant the most to him. 

Denny was a loving family man. He bonded with his brother Jason with weekly phone calls, catching up on years missed. They shared that same unique sense of humor.  His dream was to bring his family back together in his new home and make memories.  We can all honor his legacy by challenging ourselves to be better, live happy and love one another.

Dennis was preceded in death by his parents Jack (Mary) Bennett and Myron (Virginia) Starr and brother, Michael Bennett.  He is survived by his children who he cherished, Mary Katherine and Dylan; grandchildren who were the apples of his eye, Savanna, Riley and newborn Meadow.  He thought of and prayed for them daily.  Denny wanted most for them to be safe and happy.  He also leaves behind many special friends and family, who will always cherish him in their hearts forever.

A private service for the family will take place at the Schermesser Funeral Home, 600 E Turkeyfoot Lake Road, Akron, Ohio 44319 (SR619). All love and prayers will be accepted here on our website at
