He was born on July 11, 1957, in Madison, Florida to the late Arren Sr., and Virginia Ferrell Starling.

Mr. Starling was of the Baptist faith.
He is survived by his wife of 44 years, Cindy Starling of Valdosta; his daughter and son-in-law, Amber and Chris Stephens of Valdosta; three sons, Jeremy Starling of Valdosta, Dylan Starling of Lake Park, and Travis Starling and his fiancée Jamie Stuckey of Valdosta; his grandchildren, Avery Stephens, Hailey Starling, Lealan Starling, Embrey Starling, Presli Starling, Zoey Starling, Odin Starling, Ryder Starling, and Vayda Starling; his father-in-law, Burcham Tharpe of Tallahassee, Florida; three sisters and two brothers-in-law, Rebecca and Don Tippett of Valdosta, Deborah Starling of Valdosta, and Lisa and Fred Jones of Jennings, Florida; a sister-in-law and brother-in-law, Donna and Donnie Edenfield of Blountstown, Florida; sister-in-law, Susie Tharpe and brother-in-law, Bronson Tharpe of Tallahassee, Florida; several nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his mother-in-law, Lavenia Hughey Tharpe.
