Former Temptations Singer Richard Street Passes Away
Richard Street, former Temptations singer, passes away last Thursday due to a blood clot in one of his lungs. Street was 70 and died at a Las Vegas hospital.
Cindy Street, his widow, says that her husband died at St. Rose Dominican Hospital and that she had taken him to the hospital a week earlier due to complications in his breathing. This is the second time Street has suffered a blood clot. The last time was more than a decade ago.
“He was fighting to the very last moment,” the widow said in a statement. “He was very happy. He had the kind of life he wanted. We laughed all the time. He was very proud of being part of black history. He was very proud of what he had done.”
