Gilbert & Judy were wonderful neighbors and friends. Gil was such a gentleman & true Gem of a man, he was like a Father to me for many years always ready to lend a helping hand or a listening ear. I loved his farm stories & the bon fires he & judy had. We always had a blast playing cards with them, or going for Chinese in Imlay city. 💗💗. Forever in our memories.

To Price Family & Friends,

Our entire family would like to extend our deepest sympathy for your loss. I’m very thankful to have had the entire Price family in my life. No words can do justice to the impact that Mr. Price & Family has had on my life, this impact includes a tremendous work ethic and family values. At a very young age I was taught so many things with my many weekends spent at the Price family farm, such as how to drive "you name it we drove it", the meaning of hard work, this was followed up by the best family meals ever had on this planet in addition to a date at the Dairy Queen, how to hunt, how snowmobile. I think back about all the trust Mr. Price (Gilbert) had placed on each of us at such a young age, this trust has made me with no doubt the person I’m today, all I can say is thank you and I will miss you so very much.

May our prayers ease you through this difficult time.

Gil, Thank you for welcoming me twice into your family. Your hugs and kindness will be forever remembered. And...thanks for being such a wonderful step-dad to Jerry. As sad as we both are, we are also extremely happy to have been blessed to be part of your family. When you see Judy, let her know it's cold out today! Hope it is warm like Florida up there :) Thanks for being you Gil.....Love and Miss you! xo

Our sincere sympathy to the Price family. I remember going to the Price farm several times for parties. My father Max was a good friend. Craig was a good friend growing up. I particularly remember being at the Price house with Bernie Cunningham trying to make the Beatles “White Album” play backwards.

May he Rest In Peace.
