JAMES HIRAM STREET, 62 years of age of the Watkins Branch section of Grundy, VA, passed away Thursday, July 9, 2020 at his home following a courageous battle with cancer. Born in Bluefield, WV, he was the son of Hiram Atwell “H.A.” Street of Bonita Springs, FL, and Grundy, VA, and Edith Goff Street of Abingdon, VA.
