Passing of VP-4 Vet AFCM Quinten T. Starren USN (Ret) VP-4 1959 – 1960

Starren, Quinten T. ADCSLarry Scott, who served as an AK-3 in VP-4 from 1961-62, sent me a note about a 1959-1960 VP-4 Cruise Book available for purchase on Ebay.  He queried the seller about the source of the book and was told that it came from the estate of Quinten T. Starren who served in the US Navy from 1942 to 1972.
Quinten T. Starren served as an ADCS in VP-4 during 1959 – 1960 and retired as an AFCM in 1972.  He may have served longer in VP-4 but I could only find him in the 1959-60 Cruise Book and have no other record of him.
I located the following obituary.
