ROCKLAND — Paul Howard Street, 59, of Rockland, passed away peacefully on Dec. 31, 2022. He was born on Feb. 16, 1963, in Wilmington, Del.

He was raised in the loving home of his Aunt and Uncle, Pauline and Frank Thompson of Maryland. He attended schools in Maryland and Delaware and, in 1981, at 18, volunteered to serve in the United States Army, attending boot camp at Fort Bragg, N.C. He was a proud soldier of the 101st Airborne Division’s “Screaming Eagles.” In 1983, Paul met the love of his life, Tracy. They were married in 1990 and together raised their three beautiful children, Samuel, Daniel and Sadie.

Paul worked as a builder in the Rockland area, including the islands of Penobscot Bay. He took great pride in his carpentry skills, having remodeled or built many homes, additions, decks and other structures, working alongside Sonny Myers, his father-in-law, and his good friend, Steve Gibbons. Paul excelled at working with customers whose desires for their homes were complicated or uncertain. He helped solidify desires and made the impossible possible, turning their dreams into reality.

With his quick wit and charm, he had many friends. He was always up for a good time, whether that meant listening to his favorite music, participating in pool tournaments, hunting or fishing. As an avid sports fan, he always rooted for the Philadelphia Eagles, the Phillies and the Flyers.

Paul is survived by his loving wife, Tracy (Mayer); her parents, Sonny and Raeberta Myers; his sons, Samuel and Daniel Street; his daughter, Sadie Street; and his grandchildren, Jade and Emery Street, all of Rockland. He had five brothers, six sisters, and many aunts and uncles living in Florida, Maryland and Maine.

A Celebration of Life will be held at The Legion Hall in Rockland, on Jan. 21, 2023, from 2-4 p.m. All are welcome who wish to pay their respects and celebrate his memory through sharing stories.
