Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.

Russ Streeter, age 69, of Canadian Lakes, passed away Tuesday, March 6, 2018 at his home under the loving care of his family and Spectrum Health Hospice.  The son of James Russell & Mary Elizabeth (McNamara) Streeter, he was born on April 3, 1948 in Detroit.  On August 23, 1969, he married Vickie Gaylord and together they enjoyed 48 years of marriage and raised two sons. 

After earning his Bachelors degree in education, Russ spent his career as a teacher and educator, retiring from Chippewa Hills School District in 2006.  He was an avid golfer and also a member of the Stanwood Aerie Eagles Club.

He was preceded in death by his parents.  Surviving are his wife, Vickie Streeter;  their children, Jonathan Streeter of Bozeman, Montana, and Jason & Kendrah Streeter of Kalamazoo;  and three grandchildren, Bridger, Mila and Juniper.  

Honoring his wishes, cremation will take place and memorial services are being planned for late April at the Stanwood Eagles Club.  Instead of flowers, Russ would have appreciated contributions in his memory to Spectrum Health Hospice of Grand Rapids.  

To send a message of sympathy to the family, sign Russ' online guest book, or to share a favorite memory, please visit:  Arrangements are entrusted to Christiansen Cremation & Funeral Care, Greenville.

    Dear Vickie,
    We are so sorry for your loss. We have such fond memories of all our fun times at Meceola with you and Russ. And probably some times we don’t remember – too many rum and cokes LOL. We still often quote Russ when we have to take an Advil. After an operation, he was sitting at the round table in the club house with his golf shoes on and his clubs next to him-á and we asked are you waiting to play Russ? and he said-á “yeah, come on drugs kick in”.-á
    We are sending you love and hugs from Florida.
