 Brian M. Starkman passed away peacefully on March 11, 2024, at age 72.

Predeceased by his parents, James and Josephine Starkman, his brother James A. Starkman, and his beloved canine companion, Bailey.  Survived by his sister Carol Hannan, several nieces and nephews, grand nieces and grand nephews and cousins, his sister-in-law Carol Starkman, and an extensive community of long-standing friends.

Brian served on active duty in the U.S Navy from 1970 to 1973 during the Vietnam War, where he was stationed in Okinawa, Japan and Norfolk, Virginia.  He later attended college at Southern Illinois University to study broadcast communications, and was a favorite bartender at the Green Tavern in Fairport as a young adult.  He worked at the U.S. Postal Service for 28 years before retiring at the enviable age of 55 to pursue his many hobbies and interests.  Brian was an avid collector, music lover, relentless backgammon player, and train and WWII buff, but his greatest joys came from the friendships that he cultivated over decades.  Brian met regularly with friends to play volleyball, racketball, softball, horseshoes, and later, as knees grew weary, euchre and darts.   He leaves behind a loyal and loving group of friends and family and will be sorely missed.

A Celebration of Life for Brian will be held at 2pm on Saturday, April 13, 2024 at Miller Funeral and Cremation Services, Inc., 3325 Winton Road South, followed by a gathering at Fireside Grill, 3939 E. Henrietta Road.
