of Bradford, AR
December 15, 1949 - August 19, 2020
David Madison Street, 70, returned to his heavenly home on August 19, 2020, where he was met at the Pearly Gates by wagging tails and whimpers of excitement from a host of dear four-legged friends he cherished along his life's journey.He was born on December 15, 1949, in Los Angeles County, California, the son of Joseph and Doris Street and the younger brother of Paula Heckmann. The family moved from Downy, California, to Magnolia, Ark., when David was entering high school, and he spent the rest of his life in the Natural State.He had a big heart that, along with his canine friends, held adoration for family particularly his grandchildren and great-grandchild (who called him "Papaw"). He also cared deeply for a host of friends, many since high school, and others from his 14 years with the power plant in Newark, the First Church of the Nazarene in Batesville, the Church of Christ in Olyphant, and his breakfast buddies at the diners atop the hill in Southside.He was preceded in death by his beloved parents, Joe and Doris Street, and sister, Paula. He is survived by his daughter, Lori (Shaun) Robinson, of Bradford; his son, Aaron (Viktoriya) Street, of Hot Springs; grandchildren, Hunter (Hunter) Finney, Lera Street, Sydney Stubbs, Rynne Robinson, Bradley Street, Cooper Robinson, Jordan Street; great-granddaughter, Charlie Finney; and sidekick, Boo. Just as his father bore the tolls of battle from WWII, David's service in the Vietnam War left lasting impacts on him the remainder of his years, both by engraving a strong sense of patriotism for our Red, White, and Blue, but also with physical challenges that led to multiple bouts of cancer and, ultimately, his final battle with the disease.Despite these and other challenges, he was an amazing father, teaching Aaron a love of many sports (even after working a graveyard shift), Lori a love of many cars, and both the value of a tidy, carpet-raked home. David was full of "funny" "Dad jokes," and after what he thought was a zinger, he would say, "I've still got it!" David's family and friends will always keep his love and laughter in their hearts.Pallbearers are Robert Foster, Craig Shirley, Larry Robinson, Arnold Hall, David Hudgens and Mike Jackson. Honorary pallbearers will be Donnie Ray, Keith Mason, R.B. Floyd, Elmer Cochran, Shaun Robinson and Danny Bullock. Visitation will be Roller-Crouch Funeral Home, 510 College Avenue in Batesville, from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday, August 22. Graveside services will be at 2 p.m. at Coffeyville Cemetery in Bradford.Memorial can be made in his honor to Wounded Warrior Project, P.O. Box 758516, Topeka, Kansas 66675-8516.We are complying with the Arkansas Department of Health guidelines and limiting indoor visitation attendance to 50 people at one time.
