Mr. Robert Clyde “Buddy” Price, Jr., 78, of Graham, passed away at his residence on Friday, November 13, 2020.
A native of Alamance County, Mr. Price was the husband of Nellie Knight Price and son of the late Robert Clyde Price, Sr. and Etta Mozelle Holliman Price. He was retired from CKS Packaging and member of Belmont Baptist Church.
Surviving, other than his wife of the home, are two daughters, Kimberly Price Foust (Marty) and Lynne Price Pierce, all of Graham; four grandchildren, Ashton Milligan (Taylor), Haley Foust (Seth), Alexander Foust and Addison Pierce; three great grandchildren, Jaxson Harlee Milligan, Dawson Robert Milligan and Luke Austin; a special nephew, C. W. Price; his beloved dog, Shredder; several nieces and nephews; two sisters, Patricia DeLuca of MA and Sandra Hedrick of NM. Mr. Price was preceded in death by three siblings, Mary Frances Moseley, Ernest Clegg Price and Shirley Smith.
Buddy was able to pass peacefully surrounded and wrapped in the arms of his family. His family never left his side, nor his faithful companion, Shredder. Buddy’s legacy was to teach his flock of children how to fish, play sports, drive a car and pull pranks on Nana Nellie. His love not only extended to his immediate family but to all he knew. He was a father to many. The most important lesson Buddy taught us all was the importance of family and the true meaning of loving thy neighbor, and through life to find the blessing and to greet all with a smile.
The family will hold a Memorial Service in the spring due to COVID-19.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to SAFE Food Ministry, PO Box 286, Saxapahaw, NC 27340 or the Salvation Army, 812 N. Anthony St., Burlington, NC 27217.
