To the Streets,

James did it all. He went way too early, and he had more love to share and more goals to accomplish. Yet, I don't think that James forgot to do anything that he needed or wanted to do. His life story is rich and colorful, and it is an inspiration to everyone, not just the "great ones" among us. As a trial lawyer, I will never forget the commitment that he and his associates made to the Texas

The world will miss James Street. He was well liked and very respected. The world could use many, many more like him. God Bless.

Now I have another angel to call on when UT is in a crunch. 3 cheerleaders (my son being one), 2 coaches (Royal & Landry), Cole Pittman & now a new angel, James Street. RIP James. You've earned it. You'll be missed but your memory will be kept alive. Prayers are with your family & we know this world was a better place while you were passing through.

"James Street stood for gritty determination and hard work, with the heart of a champion. As a student at UT when James was quarterbacking the team, I thank him for the great memories he helped to create."

Coach Royal needed a quarterback in heaven to assemble his championship team and the only choice was James Street. James was a winner in everything he did and will be greatly missed by all. My deepest condolences go out the Street family.

1969 was my freshman year at UT. James Street was highly respected, admired, and loved. His passing comes way too soon. Saying prayers for his extended family.

When he smiled the room lit up. Loving husband and father, faithful friend and neighbor, superior athlete. Now that light has dimmed and only an orange glow remains, but we will always remember that brilliant smile that shown so brightly .
We love you all,
Geralyn & Harry Vine

I was so sad to hear James had been taken away from us. I had the pleasure of working for James at ESP and James Street Insurance. He was one of a kind. There is nothing James couldn't do - he was the most gifted person I have ever met. He had a wonderful heart and was always ready to help. I have not seen James, Janie, or the children in years but have always kept them in a special

You will always be one of my heros, James Street. My first year in Austin, as a 10-11 yr old, was one of my best! My blood turned burnt orange and I became a life-long Longhorn fan. The Great Shootout of '69 will forever be ingrained in my heart and soul. Thank you James, Coach Royal and the '69 Texas Longhorns for that very special memory.
You have now made first string, James. Coach Royal has a new playbook and is

James was an icon among many great UT athletes and made Longhorns everywhere so very proud. His heroics during the 1969 National Championship football season have spoken for themselves for 44 years and will never be forgotten. A fine person and family man, his loss is great. He made a real difference to so many. May God bless James' eternal soul and give comfort to his family. RIP, no. 16. You were a true leader and role model, young man.
