John M. Price
April 11, 1944 – August 1, 2019
Johnny Michael Price, our loved one has lost his battle with cancer. Although our hearts are broken, we are grateful to shared our lives with this great man. He has been a rock for all, has never known an enemy in his precious life of 75 years. To many he has given good advise, love and understanding. And finance if need be, never asking for anything in return. He worked in the elevator trade for 42 years. He first worked for Miami Elevator then retired from Thyssenkrupp Elevator. Johnny was an avid hunter, fisherman, air boater, and one hell of a mechanic.

Our heartfelt condolences to the family. Many years ago, I the chance to work with Johnny for a short time with Miami elevator . Most of my memories though where of him stopping by my fathers house and having some good times when we lived up in Jupiter. Very sorry to hear of his passing. May the Lord now renew his weary soul. Mr. and Mrs. Rick Walter

I’ll never forgot Uncle Johnny’s smile, in every picture I have of him he’s wearing it! He might have not been my uncle by blood, but by marriage..,but he was the best uncle I ever had! I remember going over to Aunt Irene & Uncle Johnny’s house and me and Della would get into everything they had (just like everywhere else) and he never once hollered at us or got fed up. He was a good man and he will be missed! Love you Uncle Johnny!

When I was about 8 years old we were at the old air boat landing off the Northlake Road and he gave me a ride on the Airboat I was sitting in his lap the water was low. That Year and we were riding along and he jumped down real fast end call about a 9 lb Bass with his bare hands and I thought that was the neatest thing in the world we got back to the boat ramp he gave it to me I walked around all day long so proud of that fish and I told everybody got my uncle Johnny caught it with his bare hands nobody believe me but it was a true story and I carried that fish around till it about dried up they probably lost three four pounds by the time I got done showing it off it was no good no more I probably walked around 7-8 hours that thing in my hands that was one of my Fondest Memories I've been with my uncle Johnny besides going to his house on the weekends he had a three-legged dog and laugh at all his jokes that he would always make you laugh he would always try to cheer you up he was truly one of the best man I ever known and I am very proud to say he was my uncle and I am going to miss you but I will see you soon uncle Johnny love you very much nephew Allen
