========================================================

He died on 20 OCT 1914 at Marquette, Hamilton County, Nebraska.
The Aurora Republican, Oct. 29, 1914.
The funeral services of Spencer Colby were held from the United Brethren Church in Marquette at 1 p.m. last Thursday and followed a short service at the house. The services were in charge of Rev. A. R. Caldwell. The church was crowed with those of the community and from other towns who assembled to pay their last respects to one who had been a friend to all and was respected by all who knew him. The floral emblems which were heaped upon the casket bespoke the feelings of regard entertained by the donors. The funeral services were attended by the few remaining members of Putnam post. G. A. R. of which the deceased was a member, who assembled at the hall and marched as an escort in a body, Mr. Colby had been so long identified with the history of Marquette that he had become one of its oldest, remaining citizens, and out of respect the business houses closed during the service. Rev. Caldwell commented upon the life of this good man and in a message founded on the gospel pointed others to the state of preparation which was to manifest in the manner in which Mr. Colby had lived and died. Several selected songs were sung by the choir which were a fitting part of the service. the following obituary was read:

Spencer Colby was born at Emden, Maine, April 12 1835, and departed from this life at Marquette October 20, 1914, aged 70 years 6 months and 8 days. He was united in marriage to Josephine Churchill April 7, 1855, at Moose River, Maine. To this union were born ten children, seven of whom are living. He came to York County, Nebraska, in April, 1883, and later to Hamilton County, first settling on a farm east of town and later removing to Marquette, where he has since made his home. His wife died February 21, 1907, and since that time he has made his home with his son, W. W. Colby, where he was at the time of his death. He was converted in the winter of 1871 and joined the United Brethren Church, of which he was still a member at the date of his death, coring a period of 41 years. He was a devoted student of scriptures and understood the Bible better than the average man. He enlisted in the Civil War in March, 1865, and served until the close of the War.

He leaves to mourn his loss four sons, Ansel Colby of Pennsylvania; W. W. Colby of Marquette; Asa Colby of Aurora; William Colby of Aurora; and three daughters, Mrs. Mary Litzenberger, of Callaway; Mrs. Alice Solt of Callaway; and Mrs. Myra Holderman of Stapelton. There is also a brother, James Colby residing at Moose River, Maine. With few exceptions the immediate relatives were present at the funeral, as were also a number of more distant relatives present from York, Polk, Bradshaw, Aurora and Central City. Interment was made in the Richland Cemetery.

Starr J. Colby

Aeronautical engineer and Atherton volunteer

Starr J. Colby, an Atherton community volunteer and an aeronautical engineer who pioneered developments in airplanes, rockets, missiles and spacecraft for 44 years, died at Stanford Hospital January 23 of pneumonia complicated by heart disease. He was 76. A memorial service will be held Saturday, February 12, at 3 p.m. at the First Congregational Church, 1985 Louis Road (corner of Embarcadero) in Palo Alto. A reception will follow the service.

Mr. Colby will be missed locally as one of Atherton's most dedicated volunteers. After retiring from Lockheed Missiles and Space Co. in 1988, he plunged into volunteer work with the Atherton Civic Interest League, the Lindenwood Homes Association, the League of Women Voters, Habitat for Humanity, and the Northern California Conference of the United Church of Christ.

"Starr never said no," Lindenwood colleague and former Atherton Councilman Bob Huber recalled. "If you needed someone to help, you could always count on him. He gave himself."

Mr. Colby's most visible memorial is the big gate to Lindenwood on Frederick Avenue. Mr. Colby designed the gates to incorporate the flavor of James Flood's two gates to his Linden Towers estate on Middlefield Road, said Marion Oster of the Atherton Heritage Association. "You could always count on Starr. Even last December he stuffed envelopes for us," she said.

Mr. Colby was born in Montclair, New Jersey, grew up in a family of five children, and enjoyed summers at Piseco Lake in the Adirondacks. He graduated from high school in a class of 15 in Aruba in the Dutch West Indies, where his father managed the Standard Oil plant during World War II.

During three intense years studying engineering at the University of Michigan during the war, he met and courted college friend Jean McKaye. They married in 1945.

Toward the end of the war, Mr. Colby began his life work of front-line research and development of advanced airplanes and missiles, said his son Stephen Colby of Boulder, Colorado. He worked for a while at the Glenn L. Martin Co. in Maryland, taught a year at Boston University, and earned a master's degree in aeronautical engineering from the University of Michigan, before joining Douglas Aircraft Co. in Los Angeles in 1950.

At Douglas, Mr. Starr was manager of advanced planning in the Missiles and Space Department, where they developed supersonic planes and rockets, and did early work on guided missiles. During those 12 years, the Colbys also raised a family of three sons and two daughters.

From 1963 to 1965, Mr. Colby worked in the Pentagon as assistant director for space technology under Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara, and soon-to-be Secretary of Defense Harold Brown. At that time he moved into management, working on space-age technologies, including bombs, rockets, space weapons, and remote controls for planes and rockets.

"These strands wound throughout his professional careers," said Steve Colby. "They fed the later development of the space shuttle, anti-ballistic missiles, and the remotely piloted planes that gather intelligence over Kosovo today."

The Colbys moved to Atherton in 1965 when Mr. Colby joined Lockheed Missiles and Space Co., where he worked for 23 years as manager of the Remotely Piloted Vehicle project and director of business development for the Research and Development Division. He was honored as a Fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics.

The Y03A, a super-quiet observation plane developed by one of his teams, hangs in the Hiller Aviation Museum today, Stephen Colby said.

The Colbys left Atherton for Channing House in Palo Alto about three years ago.

Mr. Colby was known to his friends as a talented organizer and leader. His hobbies included painting, genealogy, yard work, lawn bowling and poker.

Mr. Colby is survived by Jean Colby, his wife of 54 years; sons Stephen, Peter Colby of Menlo Park, and David Colby of Santa Fe, New Mexico; a daughter Betsy Colby of Atherton; and five grandchildren. He was preceded in death by daughter Sara Starr Colby.

The family suggests donations to: Music Program, First Congregational Church, 1985 Louis Road, Palo Alto, CA 94303; Cardiac Therapy Foundation, 655 Arastradero Road, Palo Alto, CA 94306; Piseco Company, SJC Memorial Fund c/o Julia Damkoeler, Deerpath, Piseco, NY 12139-9703; or a charity of choice.
