LAS VEGAS » Former Motown vocalist Richard Street, a member of the Temptations for 25 years, has died. He was 70.

Street's wife, Cindy, says her husband died early today at a hospital in Las Vegas after a short illness.

Richard Street sang as a young man with Temptations members Otis Williams and Melvin Franklin, but didn't join the famed Motown group until the early 1970s. He later made the move from his native Detroit to Los Angeles with other Motown acts and stayed with the group until the mid-1990s.

Funeral arrangements are incomplete, but Cindy Street expects services to be held sometime next week in Cypress, Calif.

She says her husband "was a really good person" who should be remembered for his work with the Temptations.
