Gary Street Obituary

Gary Street, age 71, a resident of Portland, Indiana, passed away on Tuesday, December 19, 2023, at his residence after a long illness.

Gary was born on May 1, 1952, in Portland, Indiana, son of Charles and Jaunita (Lehman) Street. He was a 1970 graduate of Portland High School and is a Veteran of the US Armed Services. He married his high school sweetheart, Barbara (Flesher) Street, on January 25, 1974.

Gary owned and operated Gary’s Mobil Service Garage until 1979 and retired from Sonoco in 2014 where he worked as a Press Operator, Shift Supervisor and Process Technician.

Family, in addition to his wife, are daughters Angela Paxson (husband Daniel) and Jennifer Boone. Gary has four grandchildren Nathaniel Paxson and Cameran Paxson of Pennville and Kyler and Kaleigh Boone of Indianapolis.

Gary has two brothers – Michael Street (Wife – Cindy), Wabash, IN, and Bruce Street (deceased) of Portland. He also has five nieces and nephews.

During Gary’s life he became convinced of the pleasures of a simple life including cleaning and target practicing with his guns, feeding the birds, hunting mushrooms, rousing euchre games with his Children and flying kites with his Grandchildren. He enjoyed the solitude of his Man Cave where he liked to watch Nascar Races and Football.
