Keith Price

MANSFIELD: Keith Price, 52, of Mansfield, passed away on Monday, January 28, 2013, following a brief illness.

Keith was born on December 27, 1960, in Mt. Gilead, OH to James and Darlene Fischer Price. He honorably served his country in the U.S. Navy and was a member of Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witness.

Along with his father, James Price, he is survived by his wife of twenty years, Melissa Williams Price; seven children, Nicole Bursley, Virginia Price, Laura Velazquez, Lisa Hernandez, Jason Williams, Juan Williams, and Ida Garza; twenty-six grandchildren of which three of them lived in his home, Russell Price, Isabel Velazquez, and Yasmina Price; and five siblings, Zelda Phoenix, Tyler Price, Ginny Price, Jimmy Price, and Sherry Stone.

Keith was preceded in death by his mother, Darlene Price; and his step-mother, Virginia "Nonie" Trowbridge Price.

Services will be held on Saturday, February 9, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. at Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witness, 1745 Walker Lake Rd., Mansfield, with Elder and Minister Floyd Davis officiating. Private burial will take place at a later date.
