OBITUARY

Dean Allen Price

October 1, 1969January 29, 2011

Dean Allen Price, 41, went home to the Lord on Saturday, January 29, 2011. He was born on October 1, 1969 in Fort Myers. He was preceded in death by his father Thomas Price, his sister Catherine (Edwards) Campbell and his mother, Virginia “Ginny” Price. He leaves to cherish his memory his beloved wife Linda (Malone) Price, his most loved daughter Maegan Price or as he called her his “Doodlebug”, his nephew Bryant Swartz, who was more like a son than a nephew, his brother Michael Edwards, his father-in-law and mother in-law Dick and Brenda Malone, 3 aunts, many cousins, nieces and nephews and numerous family and friends. Dean graduated for North Fort Myers High School in 1987. After high school he enlisted in the Navy and proudly served his country for 5 years as a “Seabee” in Naval Battalion NMCB74 based in Gulfport, MS. He was in Operation Desert Storm and was a Gulf War Veteran. He was a machinist and loved his job. After leaving the Navy he worked for Advanced Machine Repair for thirteen years, followed by two years at Utility Lines Construction. He was currently employed as a utility worker for the Lee County School District. In 1989 he met the love of his life, Linda Malone, and they were married in June 1990. They have cherished 22 “Priceless” years together. In August 2004, they welcomed their beautiful baby girl Maegan into this world and she was the “joy of his life.” You would never meet a better father and his face would light up at the sight of his little girl. Dean’s first passion in life was to take care of his family. He always put others first. When he wasn’t working his favorite thing to do was to “go to the woods” and hunt, fish and ride his swamp buggy. He just loved the outdoors and his dogs Casey, Jack and Ella. Dean made quite an impact on anyone who crossed his path and if you met him you would never forget him! The loss of this great man leaves a huge whole in many hearts today. Life will not be the same without him and he will forever remain in our hearts. The family will receive friends on Friday, February 4th from 6-8pm at Coral Ridge Funeral Home, 1630 SW Pine Island Rd., Cape Coral. Funeral Services will be at 11 am on Saturday, February 5th at the funeral home. Military Honors will be provided by V.F.W. Post 8463. Please visit www.coralridgefuneralhome.com to share in Dean’s life story and leave online thoughts and memories for his family. In lieu of flowers, donations will be accepted to help with future education expenses for his daughter Maegan Price.

Arrangements under the direction of Coral Ridge Funeral Home & Cemetery, Cape Coral, FL.

Dean was like a brother to me. We grew up together and got in trouble alot and had fun doing it. He would give you the shirt off of his back to help you out. He was a great man,Daddy and Husband, there are so few left. I will never forget all of the good times we experienced and enjoyed through out the years of our friendship. Linda and Maegan our hearts go out to the both of you. If there is ANYTHING we can do to help or if you just need someone to talk to or somewhere to come and escape all of it, please call. Our door will always be open to you and Maegan. He will be greatly missed among family and friends. P.S. Dean, your right, the Yucapan IS YOUR woods. ;-) I love ya and I'll miss you buddy.
