William Dale “Bill” Street Jr., 85, of Bloomington, passed away on Tuesday July 31, 2018 at Stonecroft Health Campus with his loving wife and son by his side. Bill was born May 20, 1933 in Greene County, Indiana and was the son of the late William Dale Street Sr. and Levta (Watson) Street. Bill was a 1953 graduate of Bloomington High School and was an Army Veteran serving in the Korean War. He was a longtime member of Arlington United Methodist Church and retired from Smithville Telephone after more than 20 years of service.
He was a loving husband, father and grandfather. During the last 8 1/2 years the pride and joy of his life was his granddaughter, Sophia.
The family would like to thank all of the wonderful caregivers at the Hearthstone and Stonecroft Health and Living Campus for their excellent care. He loved all of them and appreciated their kindness through his difficult times.
In his retirement years his favorite past time was visiting with his many friends at the Bob Evans Counter and the Cloverleaf restaurants. He enjoyed their company almost daily. A big thank you to the managers and employees at these places. They were always so kind, gracious and caring.
He loved many sports and followed them on TV. He could always tell you the details about his favorite teams and players. Watching movies, particularly the westerns, was his hobby in his retirement years.
