I am sorry to hear the loss of Pastor Starr. I was a student at Cornerstone Christian Academy back in the late 80s-mid 90s and heard him preach and teach at the school even though I was not a member at the church. Praying for the family and church family.

Pastor Starr did not water down the Word of God in any way ...very grateful for that and the example is set by his faithful service to God . Wishing his family and loved ones all the comfort at this time .

I am very blessed under the wonderful teaching and studying the Bible in my early years when I was invited by Marianne DeRoche (Piazza) that took me to Cornerstone when I was living in Canton, MA, and through her explaining to me in the Bible “The wages of sin is death, but the GIFT of God is eternal, through Jesus Christ our Lord! I will be forever great full to Marianne, Pastor Starr for preaching the messages of salvation and repentance for my sin and the faithful prayers of Pastor Starr, Earl Jury, the assistant Pastor at Cornerstone and etc!!!! May God richly bless the Starr family for their many sacrifices of not always having much time with their Dad while he was preparing many many sermons over the years as well as having a bible institute, writing the monthly Cornerstone challenge, and having a Christian school for so many years. Pastor Starr was definitely a man that was studying faithfully and approved unto God for his discipline and sacrifice each and every week to feed the flock!! Well done thou good and faithful servant!!!

I extend my heartfelt sympathy to the Starr family. May those precious memories of your dear loved one
Rolland be foremost in your hearts and minds along with this wonderful promise that our creator makes to us at Revelation 21:4 and the marvelous guarantee in verse 5. Again, my sincere condolences.
