I know my dear sister was there to welcome James to Heaven - there's a crowd from Longview there to greet him! We were always so proud to say we grew up with James Street! My prayers go to his wife and sister and family. Carol Dickinson

At coach royals birthday party

I met James at Coach Royals 80th birthday party for the first time, even tho I was working the event he still took the time to take a picture and tell a few jokes! I also had the honor to see him on game days and for the many events he attended at UT. He was always a breath of fresh air and always ready with a smile and a hug every time we met. My sympathies to ms. Janie

James was a good friend growing up and playing ball together.

I watched James throw footballs and baseballs with the kids in our neighborhood many years ago in Longview. As a young man, he was someone to idolize, even then. And what a legend Mr. Street turned out to be. May your family be blessed with peace and comfort as prayers are offered up by so many for you.

I was very blessed to have gotten to know James in recent years. Even though my time with him was limited I was honored by every minute. The attribute that was most impressive to me was his glowing love of life, and his drive to accomplish all that he could. And what a life he did live! God Bless James, and God Bless the Street family.

One of the nicest guys I ever met. I was in the Houston Hobby airport about 2 years ago when I met the one of the men that broke my heart when I was 9 years old. I was going through security when I heard the pa announce. me James Street please return to security for a item left behind. Being a huge Razorback fan I knew there could not be another James Street in Texas. I started looking, in

I saw this True Legend play football when I attended my first UT game when I was in junior high. I was visiting my Aunt and Uncle in Austin. Such a sweet memory I hold in my heart. Rest in Peace, dear James. Your memory will live on forever at the University of Texas and in our hearts. Hook 'em.
