AUSTINTOWN – Edward H. Price III, 75, of Youngstown, was called home to be with our Lord on Wednesday morning, June 15, 2022 at the Cleveland Clinic, surrounded by his loving family.
Edward was born on February 1, 1947 in Youngstown, the son of Edward H. Jr. and Catherine L. Eddleblute Price.
He graduated from Boardman High School in 1965 and attended Youngstown University.
Edward was self-employed and owner of Price Enterprises, a general contracting business and a dental equipment dealership and service business. He started by designing and building dental units that still work today, more than 50 years later.
Edward was very active in community service. He had been a member of the Austintown Rotary, the Austintown Historical Society, and the Austintown Community Council.
He had a passion and appreciation for architecture, history, and Mill Creek Park, as well as craftsmanship, politics, and tinkering with his cars (Jeeps, Corvettes, and MGs). He leaves fond memories for his children of cruising with him on Route 224 on Friday nights to A&W, off-roading in Jeeps, visiting historic homes, traveling and working together in the family business.
Her greatest passion by far was taking care of her family. He leaves Emilie, the love of his 52-year-old life, whom he married on February 11, 1970; five children, Edward H. IV of Boardman, Matthew (Michelle) of Cincinnati, B. Steven (Daniela) of North Jackson, Jane Price of Austintown, and Carrie (Toby) Borcoman of Breinigsville, Pennsylvania; brother, Brad (Gretchen) Price of Poland; two sisters, Cathy Price of Canfield and Rebecca (Frank Piganelli) of Canfield; niece, Amanda (Keith) Cummings; and eight grandchildren, Matthew Price, Gabriella, Olivia and Vincent Price, Emilie Price Kolenich, Blake, Liam and Greyson Borcoman.
He was predeceased by his parents and his best friend, Larry Zinz.
A private service took place.
Arrangements have been made through Higgins-Reardon Funeral Home, Austintown Chapel.
As Ed would always say, “Drive Safely!”
