|As long as we live and breathe, your legacy will live on! We love you dad, Forever!|
Brian Price, loving husband, father, and adoring grandad was 76, born on May 20, 1939 in London England and passed away suddenly on July 4, 2015 at his home in Madison, CT. The pain of his passing is immense, but we will honor him and his memory in all the days of our lives.
"Dad, it's been one year without your voice, your smile, your steady hand, and your heartwarming hugs. I miss you more every day that goes by, but i think of you in just about everything going on in my daily life. I lived each day of this past year in fear that your memory would fade. Nothing could be further from the truth. I know you are right here by my side, always! I Love You Dad!"
"I always remember Brian as a great man that always has a moment to listen and time to share his life with me.Hard to find friends like him.He always will be missed."
"Am thinking of Sylvia today please try and build some bridges x"
"It's 4:54am and have been unable to sleep. I just received an email from Father Michael at St. Gwynno Church. we are working on the details of our trip in August to bring you "Home" to Wales. Harvey and Aileen will Join us along with Stan and Elaine. Working on a few others too! There isn't a day that goes by Dad that I'm not thinking about you. Everyone tells me you are with me all the time. I choose to believe that as I can't imagine life any other way."
"There's not a single day that goes by where I don't think of my Granddad. He taught me everything, from playing chess to driving a car. I would talk to him every weekend. He was charming, a true gentleman. I loved the smell of his cigars every time I'd see him. He was more than a grandfather, he was my best friend. Wishing I could hear your laugh one last time, and see your smiling face."
"I had the great pleasure of working with Brian since 1998 when I first met him. There will never be another Brian , the nicest gentleman you would ever meet. We had a special bond, both being born and immigrating from England, I miss him , as do all the guys at QES"
"One month to this day and it still doesn't feel real. I miss you every single day dad. I open my eyes each morning with that one minute of thinking that all is well and you are just down the road planning to pop in........and then reality sets in just as quickly that i will never see your smiling face again. Never see you look at me again with your cheerful grin.........and never watch you hug and kiss your grandchildren. I know everyone says I have my memories.....and this is true.......but the pain of missing you is still too strong to enjoy those just yet. I love you dad."
"We only had the opportunity to meet Brian twice before his passing. The 1st time was at Guilford Mooring where he christened me with a pint of Guinness on my lap. The 2nd time was at Montowese, while Adrian was recuperating. Both times he was a gentleman and full of life. Only wish we met him earlier. Rest in Peace."
"I met Brian a few times. The most recent was at Adrian's 50th Birthday Party. He said hello,had a few laughs and went on to the next table! What a wonderful man."
"On Brian and Sylvia's visits to the UK Brian loved to go to our local bakery and always came back with crusty bread, sausage rolls, pies and quite a few cakes!
Also, when Adrian came to stay too, there were breakfast fry-ups at the Windmill Cafe which they both loved.
It was always a pleasure to have Brian to stay and John and I will miss our telephone chats. Brian will always be remembered with love."
"I have many memories of Brian, with Sylvia probably too many to mention here. My extra special memories are of Brian with Sylvia stepping in when I was seriously unwell while living in the USA. They collected me and took me into their home like a daughter. They looked after me and joined me in every occasion. I remember when my health had improved and I was recovering Brian handing me the keys of the Trans Am. I used it to get around. They became to me my adopted mum and dad in the USA as my own parents were far away in Ireland.
All visits to them were special, watching TV their cat would jump up on my lap and Brian and Sylvia always made sure I was OK with their beautiful dog, as I'm not a great dog person and his bark made me nervous (he was a softie really, but I was a scaredy-cat).
We would talk about England and the pros and cons of both countries. It was great meeting up with them in Surrey years later, Spencer was just a toddler. It was always on my to-do list to visit them and only a month ago I had mentioned visiting them to my mother, who went to school with Sylvia. That visit when it comes around will have a huge gap in it, with Brian gone. I was stunned to hear of his passing and hoped it was untrue, like when you don't want to hear something you don't like.
Rest in peace my adopted USA Dad, love you and so sorry I never got to see you recently. I treasure the memories I have
"When I lived in Connecticut up until 1981, I was a frequent visitor at the Price home. I was always greeted by Mr. P with "How the 'ell are you"? Always laughing, never in foul mood. I remember that gadget he bought the flip you upside down to relieve pressure on the back. I remember hearing about his trade as a tool & die maker. Hearing of his passing was a shock to me. I thought with the longevity of his parents that he'd be around much longer. I am so sad for Mrs. P, Adrian and his family. I wished you could have met my wife and children Mr. P."
Have a suggestion for us?
