Born February 14, 1928, in Red Lion, he was a son of the late Perry and Katie (Miller) Streavig. He was a United States Marine Corps Veteran of World War II. At a young age, Mr. Streavig worked on his father's butcher truck delivering meat house to house. After he got married, he began painting houses. He and his wife soon decided to go into business for themselves. Their business interest, all of which were in or around Dallastown, included a car wash, a service station, a laundry facility, a dairy bar, a stand at Central Market, they supplied all the produce to vendors at the York Fair for many years, and he was also involved in several land development projects. The accomplishment he cherished most was Streavig's Food Market, where he worked side by side with his wife from 1954-1970. Pierce and Phyllis received Dallastown's Outstanding Citizen Award in 2009 for their dedicated service and development of Dallastown. He loved his Christmas lights, always decorating his store with thousand of lights every year and later started decorating his house the same way. Every year, he would dress as Santa and his wife as Mrs. Santa. Regardless of weather, they were there, he riding his tractor around talking to kids and his wife beside him handing out candy canes. He also enjoyed rides in the country which always led to a stop at the Collinsville Dairy Bar for a burger and ice cream cone. Mr. Streavig is survived by three sons, Gregory L. Streavig and wife, Lorna of Red Lion, Michael L. Streavig and Jill of Red Lion, and Jeffery A. Streavig, Sr., and wife, Deborah of Dallastown; six grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; one sister, Miriam Grabow of Florida; one brother-in-law, Enos Sinclair and wife, Shirley of East York; two sisters-in-law, Doris Kauffman and husband, Weldon of York and Deloris Wilson and husband, Ronald of Manchester; a special friend, Ellen Bare; and nieces and nephews.
