James was born in Champaign, Illinois, on December 1, 1954, the son of the late Howard and Frances (Lehmkuhl) Streight, and was raised by the late William Streight, Sr., and Jeanne (Doyle) Wahle of Milford. James graduated from Wyoming High School in 1973 and recently retired in November 2019 as a manager at Cincinnati Dowel and Wood Products, in Mt. Orab, Ohio. James was an active participant in the Winchester festival and other village activities for many years.

Jimmy was an interesting guy, with great stories. He was a major contributor of time and talent to many Halloween events and Super Bowl parties. He could smoke a mean brisket! He will be truly missed by all who knew him. Go Jimmy, go Jimmy!

Jimmy was a good friend who will be dearly missed. We had a lot of fun and adventures together. He will be remembered by those who knew him. An introvert of sorts, Jimmy cared about people, loved the Lord, and was a great story teller. Our loss is heaven's gain.
