EAST HARWICH – Our beloved Fred Roscoe Street came to a peaceful rest with his loving wife by his side at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston on June 23, 2014. Fred was born in Atlanta, GA on March 30, 1940 to Dorothy Eloise (Lanford) and Fred Clinton Street.
He graduated from Decatur High School in 1958, then attended Georgia Institute of Technology and received a degree in Industrial Engineering in 1963. Fred relocated to the Berkshires in the early 70's and was employed as plant manager of Sheaffer Eaton in Pittsfield, MA. He moved to Harwich, MA in 1992.
Fred is survived by his wife Barbara Anne Brown-Street, daughters Trudy Karlson (Roy Karlson), Holly Street Trong (Chip Trong), and their mother, Gail Street, sisters Gina Burke (Michael Burke), Jane Hooper, grandson Andrew Kubli, granddaughter Dakota Kubli, nieces Allison and Emily Burke, Amy Stroud, Erin Dodd, Dawn Duncan, and nephews Gregory, Paul, and Nicholas DiCrosta. He is predeceased by his parents, brother Phil Street, sister Donna Watson and niece Eve Patton.
Fred was proud of and sentimental about his southern roots. He enjoyed his return trips to Georgia to visit his family and alma mater, enjoying Brunswick Stew, barbecue, country ham and fried okra at the family homestead, and chili dogs with onion rings at The Varsity of Georgia Tech. Fred's best friend and constant companion was Duffy, his Havanese pup who adored him. They enjoyed daily rides together to Round Cove and Pleasant Bay capturing the serenity and gentle beauty of the Cape. Oh, Fred, how we loved thee.
A private memorial service and celebration of his life is planned for family and friends. Donations may be made to the Massachusetts General Hospital Fund, c/o The MGH Development Office, 100 Cambridge Street, Suite 1310, Boston, MA 02114.
