JAMES HENRY PRICE

James Henry Price, 79, passed away Tuesday Sept. 2, 2020. James (Jim) was a beloved husband, father, grandfather, and brother. He died peacefully surrounded by family in Windsor, Va. He was the eldest son of Benjamin Henry Price and Clara Ann Price. Jim is survived by: Wife of 47 years, Gloria Price; six children, Jamey Price, Jeffrey Price (Susan), Traci Price, Holly Patterson (Joe), Byron Price, John Price (Chrissy); 18 grandchildren; three great-grandchildren; and his loving brother and sister, Charles Price and wife Kay, and Kathryn Church and husband Dwight; as well as six nieces and nephews. A graduate of the University of Tennessee, Jim began his career as a department store manager. He also owned a successful chain of nursery schools and was a longtime realtor in Charlotte, N.C., where he spent most of his adult life. Besides his family, Jim had many loves — a good conversation, a good book, thunder storms, rocking chairs, a cup of coffee. He loved sports. Excelling at multiple sports throughout school, Jim cherished watching his children and grandchildren compete at anything. He was the ultimate coach and cheerleader. When asked, Jim always said he was from South Clinton. He spent hours of long car rides telling his kids fantastic stories of his family and friends and their seemingly idyllic youth in South Clinton. Go Vols!
