Starling Greer, Jr. was welcomed into this world on Nov. 6, 1950 in Mellwood, into the loving arms of Starling Greer and Maybell Golden Greer. He was affectionately known as “Star,” “Junior” and “Uncle June.”

Star accepted Christ as his personal savior at an early age. He was baptized at the Church of the Living God of Elaine.

He graduated from Elaine Industrial High School in 1966. He married Catherine Stevenson and to this union three children were born, Steven, Michelle, and Shavaughn. Starling married Annie Burrell in Chicago, Illinois in 1993, from there they relocated to Gary, Indiana.

Starling was self-employed and enjoyed working with automotive repairing and rehabilitation. He loved outdoor activities with the family, attending church, reading his Bible, playing board games and sketch drawing. He was extremely loving and loyal to his children and a caring and sincere brother to his siblings. He will forever be in their hearts and never forgotten.

God called Starling home to rest from his labor on Monday, May 15, 2017 at the age of 67 at the Methodist Northlake Hospital in Gary.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Starling, Sr. and Maybell Greer of Lake View and his granddaughter, Shantavia Greer of Gary.

He leaves his devoted wife of 24 years, Annie Burrell Greer; a son, Steven Greer; two daughters, Shavaughn Greer and Michelle Greer; five siblings, three brothers, Charlie Greer, Larry Greer, and Marvin (Tina) Greer; and two sisters, Hattie Greer Fields and Missy Joyce (Elder Ruby) Anderson; five grandchildren, Montrez Greer, Trevor Jackson, Shandra Greer, Devone Greer, and Angel Jackson; and a host of nieces, nephews, friends, and relatives.
