Arthur G. Price
Arthur G. PriceFlagArthur G. Price, 80, of Richwood died Monday evening, April 21, 2008 at his home surrounded by his loving family.  He was born December 28, 1927 in LaRue to the late Morris N. and Lenore (Cahill) Price.

On January 23, 1948 he married the love of his life, Phyllis Jean Hixon and she died January 21, 2002 after 54 years of marriage.

He retired from Whirlpool in 1990 after 34 dedicated years in the maintenance department.  He was a 1945 graduate of LaRue High School before serving in the U. S. Army.  He was raised a Methodist in the LaRue United Methodist Church.

Art believed that challenges in life were not to be avoided but dealt with head on.  For him only a job well done meant a goal achieved.   He was an optimistic, honest, humble and hard working man who strenuously taught the virtues by which he lived.  He exemplified “The Greatest Generation” as described by Tom Brokaw, defending our country when called, asking for nothing in return, and setting an example for others to follow in thought, word and deed; a teacher to the end.  But family was his number one priority and he always considered his wife Phyllis and their kids to be his greatest accomplishment.

He is survived by two sons, Stephen G. (Linda) Price, LaRue; Mark E. (Brenda) Price, Richwood; two daughters, Rebecca Lynn (Rob) Miller, Galion; Rose Mary (Bill) Bales, Centerville; ten grandchildren, Nathan Miller, Kyle Miller, Gina Lewis, Rachel Price, Sara Price, Brooks Smith, Nic Price, Colin Butz, Emily Asher and Brandi Barton; five great-grandchildren, Grace, Joel, Faith, Jayden and Lilliana; a brother, Gale (Janice) Price, Richwood; two sisters-in-law, Betty Lou Davis, Westminster; and Ruth Price, Westerville.

He was preceded in death by three brothers, Glenn, Howard and Gene.

Funeral services will be held Friday, April 25, 2008 at 11:00 AM in the Stofcheck-Ballinger Funeral Home, Richwood with Pastor Keith Irey officiating.  Burial will follow in LaRue Cemetery where military honors will be provided by the Richwood Area Veterans.  Serving as pallbearers will be members of his beloved family.  Friends may call from 4 to 8 PM on Thursday at the funeral home in Richwood.

Memorial gifts may be made to Marion General Hospice, 278 Barks Rd., Marion, OH 43302.  Condolences and remembrances may be expressed at www.stofcheck-ballingerfuneralhome.com

Our heartfelt condolences and prayers to Arthur's family. He was one of a kind, one of the most inherantly brilliant men I have ever known. He always had an appropiate answer to any problem be it human or mechanical.Gathering parts from the junkyard, he built the first bicycle that my brothers and I owned. It was the most beautiful and well built bike I ever saw. I could talk to him for hours and never be bored. He was a remarkable husband, father, grandfather and friend. He will be missed by all of us.

My deepest condolences to you and family.  I never met your father but from what Rob has told me, he was a loving, compassionate man who loved his family unconditionally.  When I saw his picture, you immediately came to mind because you definitely have his beautiful smile.  I pray you'll find comfort in the wonderful memories he's left behind with you.  
Rob:  Take care of Rebecca.

I am sorry to read of your father's/brother's passing. It was just a few weeks ago that I spoke to Rose Mary when she was in Carlyles having lunch with your father. I was not aware of his fragile health.  My sympathy to each of you.

 Our deepest sympathy goes to Nim's very special family that I have known in my life time.  I always enjoyed calling Nim before he became ill and we would always talk for such a long time.  When he became so ill, Nim was always the same great person that I always known even after I called him a few weeks ago and he would still talk even if he wasn't well.  He is one and will always be one of a kind.  He will be missed very much.  Love, Bob and Penny

Becky, I can think of no words to help you over this very sad time.  We have prayed for your father for a very long time.  God has answered our prayers and has taken him home and released him from his suffering. Now you suffer his loss.  Remember, his physical presence may be gone but his memory will forever in your heart.
God Bless and know you remain in my prayers.
