Jack Merrill Streeter

September 14, 1932 — May 18, 2019

Jack Streeter is dead (That’s how he wanted his obituary to read.)

Jack Merrill Streeter was born September 14, 1932 in Buffalo, Wyoming, the first and only son of Paul C. “Mike” Streeter and Myrtle L. (Merrill) Streeter. Growing up on ranches on Powder River near Kaycee, he graduated from Johnson County High School in 1949.

After graduation Jack hired on as a cowboy on the famous TTT Ranch in the Willow Creek country southwest of Kaycee. After a number of years riding roundup wagons, cow camps, and trailing steers to the railroad stockyards in Arminto, Jack moved on to become a wrangler on dude ranches around Cody, Wyoming, and Nogales, Arizona. Always up for horseback adventure, he hired on as a seasonal game warden during the summer and fall in the remote Sunlight Basin of western Wyoming. In 1971 he took his position as a brand inspector at the sale barn in Torrington, Wyoming. He transferred to Gillette, eventually becoming the Wyoming Livestock Board Brand Inspector Supervisor for Northeastern Wyoming until his retirement in 2016.

Jack is survived by a sister, Joanne Bailey of Madras, Oregon; a brother, Bob Streeter of Shoshoni, Wyoming; a brother, Tom Streeter of Newcastle, Wyoming; and everyone that ever met him that loved, admired, and respected him.

Services will be held at 10: 00 a.m. Saturday, 25 May, at New Life Church in Gillette, Wyoming. Burial will follow beside his father in Willow Grove Cemetery, Buffalo, Wyoming.
