To the Price family- my deepest sympathies to the family for the passing of John, I know that he will be sorely missed, I know he will by me, as we have worked together side by side for a number of years together. It now seems one more good friend is gone. I am sorry that that I won't be able to make the trip at this time due to health problems, and driving problems after dark..But once again, he will be missed by all who knew, and worked with him....

Our heartfelt condolences and prayers to the entire Price family. I spent many happy hours over 20 plus years, in K of C kitchens with Johnnie, and will always cherish those memories. He was a wonderful friend, and a truly dedicated brother Knight.

We are Thinking of You at This Time and Wishing You Comfort and Peace.

We know there are no words that can express our thoughts for you and your family. We can only have faith that he is in a much happier place and is at peace.

That hope helped us when our fathers, mothers, and daughter passed away.
God Bless You,
Ted and Alice

We were so sorry to hear about John. Our favorite memory was meeting up with him & Mark in OC at the KOC convention, when the kids were younger. We'd go to the Bayside Skillet for Omlets. It was our favorite weekend of the year! He will be greatly missed. Kim, Ashleigh & Jonathon Mills.
