My PopPop was a man of few words, in the most beautiful way possible. I’m not quite sure it was a lack of words as much as the need to let his actions reflect the compassion he felt for everyone around him.
I don’t think I have met anyone as selfless as PopPop. He could never sit still because he was always helping someone or trying to figure out who needed help. Whether it was a little old lady down the street , our church community, helping his granddaughter find the perfect first car (it was red and really great), or even helping his son finish jobs around the house… he never rested until it was all taken care of.
A common phrase in our house growing up was “I don’t know… just call PopPop” and he never hesitated to come to the rescue or give you a quick fix with the shortest phone call possible, again a man of few words…but very important words.
He loved to share his many adventures with us. I think I can vouch for all my cousins when I say that some of our oldest memories revolve around PopPop and his boat. I loved watching my dad and PopPop work together to get the boat ready as I held my tiny pink fishing rod. And I loved how seamlessly they worked together and how peaceful they both seemed once we were out on the water. And no matter how many times I got sick or caused us to cut the trip short…. He always invited me back for another adventure.
He was a master tour guide. On our many trips to Deal Island and Tangier, and we can’t forget those ambitious yard sale voyages he orchestrated. Every trip, every story and every pit stop helped us catch a glimpse of his love and joy for his family.
Putting into words how wonderful and inspirational PopPop was is not easy. Everyone has a story of PopPop that inspired their humor, sense of adventure, or their heart. And how blessed my family is to be a part of that legacy.
PopPop always said there are 2 kinds of people in this world. There are 1- Prices and 2- Those who wish they were. I’ll always be thankful to have grown up a Price and thankful for a grandfather who set a wonderful example of how to love wholeheartedly.

Eulogy of John Price

November 18, 2019

My grandfather led a full life and touched countless lives along the way. He was a fisherman, a handyman, a co-pilot, a cook, and a loving husband, father, and grandfather. He was also my first best friend. At least once a month growing up, Pop and I would spend an afternoon fishing, grab a pizza and some garlic knots at our favorite restaurant, and spend the night watching old movies and fighting mosquitos on the boat. I was never the best at fishing and am sad to say I haven’t been in a while, but then again, it was never really about the fishing anyways. The fishing was just an excuse to get away from it all and spend some time with my grandfather. He had a gruff exterior, but on the inside, he had the heart of a lion. He cared deeply for his friends and family, and all those fishing trips we took when I was younger were just one of his many ways of showing it. I miss my grandfather terribly, but even though he’s gone, the tremendous impact of his life can still be felt. I will never forget the times we shared together, or the example he set for me.

Actually we have so many wonderful memories from the past 25 years or so, l wouldn't know where to start. From yard sales to thrift shops; from trips to Thurmont to New Holland, to Sandy Point to Florida and numerous places in between. Wayne was our personal excursion and vacation planner. He would map out the best sounding yard sales and even fly down to Florda to check out a new house he had found on the Internet to make sure it was as good as it sounded . Wayne also would look for evening entertainment during our stays in Florida, such as gospel concerts at local churches and even a play or two.
Wayne even took me to visit an older friend of mine from Salisbury who moved down to Florida to a retirement home about 10 years ago, to be near her family. This was a trip of several hours . After dropping me off, he would take his remaining passengers to a local flea market or thrift shops and of course a stop for lunch before picking me back up and heading back "home". Our last trip was this past February . Even though he wasn't feeling well, he insisted on making the trip. (My friend will be 100 years old next July)
Carolyn, you picked a great partner to go through life with. May God continue to bless you till you meet again. We both so love the two of you!
Love , Norris and Jane
