Joe Louis Streets, son of the late Walter and Thelma Baylor Streets was born on March 14, 1937, in Westmoreland County, Virginia. After a courageous battle with health challenges, Joe Louis’ earthly work was finished. God called him to his heavenly home on January 19, 2022. He was 84 years of age.

Early in life Joe confessed his faith in Jesus Christ and joined Grant’s Hill Baptist Church in Leedstown, Virginia. He was a faithful member.

He received his education in the public schools of Westmoreland County. Joe served a tour of duty with the United States Air Force. Upon being honorably discharged, he returned home and was employed as a farm laborer and truck driver. He transported goods for Edwards Grain of Montross, Virginia, Quarles Petroleum Inc. in Fredericksburg, Virginia, and J. R. Fogg. After retiring, Joe worked part-time at Ingleside Vineyards in Oak Grove, Virginia until his health began to fail. He was a dedicated worker and took great pride in his truck driving skills.

On December 19, 1958, Joe wed Joan Marjorie Nash. To this union one daughter was born, Theresa.

Joe was preceded in death by his parents, Walter and Thelma Baylor Streets; brother, Walter Streets Jr. (Lorriane).
