Robert, also know to many as “Bob,” was born on Feb. 26, 1930, at Los Angeles, where his parents often spent their winters. At three weeks of age, he returned to Baker City where he lived most of his life.

Bob was a farmer, rancher, log truck driver, mechanic, a millwright, logger, carpenter, and jack-of-all-trades. He was married to Barbara Jackson and they had four children: Gary, Daniel, Debra and Robert. Bob married Alice Carpenter in 1967, and they had three sons: David, Kenneth and Joseph.

The family successfully ran the Street Sawmill for many years together.

Bob was loved by many who knew him, and those who didn’t know him heard about his stories, family members said.

Bob loved his life, family, and church family. He enjoyed going for long drives, especially with his cousin, Meredith. He was often seen roaming the back roads of Baker County. He enjoyed camping, hunting, fishing, listening to music, antique cars and telling great stories.

Survivors include his wife, Alice; his children and their spouses, Gary Lynn Street and his wife, Cheryl, of Tarban, Daniel Lee Street and his wife, Kelli, of Gresham, Debra Ren Tomlinson and her husband, Steven of Oregon City, and Robert Kenneth VI and his wife, Teresa, of Oregon City, David Carpenter and his fiance, Kyrn, of Leetonia, Ohio, Kenneth Roy Street and his wife, Seanna, of Baker City and Joseph Dean Street and his wife, Aundrea, of Baker City; 15 grandchildren, Tara, Cindy, Alex, Ben, Michael, Michael, Tom, Christina, Robert, Heather, and Jeff Street, Kerri and Jonathan Tomlinson, Michael Carpenter, and Michael Massi; three great-grandchildren and numerous cousins.
