I had the privilege of knowing and working with John when I was a farm boy and FFA member in Jasper. He was one of the top vo-ag teachers and FFA advisors in the state, and such a caring, inspiring person. My prayers are with him and family,
To the Price Family
I am so sorry to hear of your fathers passing. John was a great story teller
and over the years while doing his tax returns I had the pleasure of hearing many of them. John loved nature and most of all trees as his wife called him a tree hugger.
John will be missed by the community and I will miss his friendship.
My sincere condolences to the family of John E. Price. Your dad/grandfather/great grandfather/in-law was a fine man with a great deal of integrity and loyalty. When I first started teaching at WCS, John and I were the only ones who taught in that corridor. He would check in when I first started back to teaching. He wanted to make sure I knew the ropes of teaching at WCS. Such a quiet-spoken fellow! His students really liked him and respected him. That greenhouse was such a marvelous addition to the ag program! It was inspirational! Kids came in before school and then stayed after school to work in the house of glass. John had just as much fun as the kids! At Christmas time they grew poinsettias to raise money for the FFA. John was a good teacher--just ask his former students! Bob and I were more than colleagues of John and Joann--we were also friends. They had more kids than we did, but our kids were in class with three of the Price kids: Bobby with Judy, Jeanne with Jean, and Jim with Jim.The Hughes family sends their condolences to the Prices. We were lucky to have you as friends. Thanks for the wonderful memories. May God bless John Price and may God bless all who love him and will miss him.
My condolences to the Price family. Mr. Price was the best high school teacher I had. He was knowledgeable, kind and compassionate. His sense of humor was appreciated by all. His efforts live on in all his students.
