Wozikev - The correct spelling is Streckfuss. I know nothing about the man, and it appears obvious he wasn't a prominent member of any of the "ruling class".
I'd suggest he might have been an MRD employee, or a station employee who was well thought of.
Strangely, there's no record of him anywhere. Usually a hunt turns up something, even small stuff such as a mention in a news article.
You'd think if he got a rest area named after him, he'd have achieved a mention doing something worthwhile.
The only thing I've turned up is what appears to be his father's grave (Streckfuss, William Henry James) in Collie. There's no record of any Desmond Streckfuss buried anywhere in W.A., indicating the gentleman is either still alive or has been buried in another state.
Cheers - Ron.
