Alden Street Obituary

On January 22, 2024, at 96, Alden Nathaniel Street, was called to heaven by Jesus, joining his wife, Betty, and many friends and family that passed before him.

Born December 30, 1927, to Margaret and Nathaniel Street, Alden grew up in the Yarmouth/Portland area. He met his wife, Betty MacKinnon, when she was just 16, and he was 19 working at a Yarmouth gas station. He admired her as she walked by and likely heckled her until she finally agreed to marry him 3 years later, in 1950. They were married just shy of 72 years at the time of Betty’s passing in 2022.

After a short stint in the U.S. Navy and following a medical discharge, he and Betty raised 4 children; 3 daughters and one son.

Alden was a character, and full of mischief. He loved to tease, and tell endless stories of his many experiences selling cars for 16+ years at Cory Motors in Portland, being in the trucking industry with Clement Brothers , and in sales at Rockwell Distributors in Yarmouth. He later showed his entrepreneurial side by starting/owning/operating Street Cycles in Falmouth, from 1972 until selling the business in 1978. He and Betty then retired to their escape cabin in Strong, where neither one of them knew what retirement meant, going to work at the local school, and still parenting their youngest, Erik, as he was 10 years behind the youngest daughter. He and Betty also traveled the U.S. extensively in their RV for seven years. Eventually they settled back in the Windham area. Alden, still unable to sit still, joined Gillies Lumber as a delivery driver, finally retiring at 82.

Alden loved to travel, loved to buy and sell homes, loved cars and trucks, loved snowmobiles and motorcycles, loved to help others less fortunate than himself, and loved to share his life adventures. He loved his family and always did his best to show them. Mostly, he loved the Lord and sharing what God has to offer each and every one of us… Salvation! He and Betty attended Eastpoint Christian Church, South Portland, where church friends were loved and became extended family.

No one will miss his stories more than his 4 children: Karen Moulton (Jim), Terri McIsaac (Dean), Susan Kerner (Chris), and Erik Street (Judy), along with 8 grandchildren, Jenny (Moulton) Chien, Amy (Moulton) Boutwell, Adam McIsaac, Scott McIsaac, Benjamin Kerner, Kathryn Kerner, Daniel Street and Jacob Street. Alden and Betty were also blessed with 9 great grandchildren. Alden will also be missed by his two twin sisters, Margaret (Greta) Russell and Glenyss Crafts as well as many nieces and nephews and their extended families.

A very special thank you to his many caregivers, nurses, doctors, family, friends, extended family for your love, support , prayers and endless patience while listening to his stories. Now he has a new audience to share them with!

There will be a celebration of life for Alden in the spring.
