George W. Price Sr., longtime resident of Greenville, passed away peacefully Feb. 1, 2011, at Country Villa-Quincy at the age of 89.

He is survived by two sons, Bob and Frank, along with daughters-in-law Dee and Dorathy, all of Greenville; seven grand-, 11 great-grand- and two great-great-grandchildren, along with a host of nieces and nephews. George was preceded in death by his wife Winnie and youngest son, George Jr.

Born July 11, 1921, in Oroville as the youngest of four brothers and three sisters, George lost both his parents before he was 11. He was raised by his brother Bill, and at age 12 they moved to Greenville where George attended Greenville High School. He competed in basketball on the A Team and was also a talented pitcher for their baseball team. George was invited to try out for the Red Sox but when he arrived at camp they admired his talent but felt he was too light and was asked to try out again in a couple of years.

At the age of 17, George joined the United States Marine Corps where he served his country valiantly during World War II and at one time was the youngest member of his platoon.

He returned to Greenville following his discharge and met the late Winnie Evans whom he later married. He had worked as a logger before beginning what became a 36-year career as a carpenter working out of Local 1599.

George enjoyed hunting and camping with his family along with panning for gold along the streams and rivers of the area.
