James Price Obituary

Elisha James Price, known to all as James, passed away at the age of 75 on December 1, 2023, in Antlers, Oklahoma. Born on July 7, 1948, in the small town of Sneedville, Tennessee, he was a beacon of strength and joy to all who knew him.

On August 27, 1966, James married his beloved Thelma Jo Fergason in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The couple nurtured a family that grew to include their loving children: Lonny Price and his wife Kelly of Sherman, Texas, Tina Price of Antlers, Oklahoma, and Bobby Price of Calera, Oklahoma. His brother, LC Price and wife Anna of Elk City, Oklahoma; sister, Zelma Smith of Yukon, Oklahoma; as well as his cherished grandchildren, Janie, James, Korey, Misty, Zack, Cody, Lyndzy, Kyle, Dylan, and great-grandchildren, Kaydence, Carter, Roxanne, Piper, Rylle, Jayden, and Layne, are left to honor his memory.

James dedicated many years of service as a truck driver for the Oklahoma Department of Transportation, and his commitment to his work was unwavering. He later adventured into the oilfield and eventually became an over-the-road driver, sharing stories of the open highways and the interesting people he met along the way.

Preceded in death by his parents, Drew Lonny and Ethel Price, and siblings Kyle Price, Tom Price, Dorothy Shepard, Clara Daniels, and Brenda Ragsdale, James leaves behind a rich tapestry of lived experiences.

An avid outdoorsman, James relished his time fishing, camping, and tending to his garden. Perhaps the most joyous times were those spent playing and creating memories with his grandkids, moments that are now cherished memories imprinted in the hearts of his family.
