We are sad to announce the death of Fredrick Jerome Price, age 76, who passed away peacefully surrounded by his loved ones at Hospice House of the Piedmont in High Point, NC on Friday, April 21, 2023 after a brief illness. Fred (Jerome) was born in Greensboro, North Carolina on June 11, 1946. He graduated from Dudley High School in 1964 and attended Guilford Technical Institute majoring in Machinery.
Fred (Jerome) loved working in the yard planting flowers & mowing the lawn which looked like a golf course, which was his passion. He loved sitting outside while drinking his tea with nature & feeding the birds. Some of the birds would even walk up and eat out of his hands, this was his daily routine. He also loved fishing and would sit in the boat for hours sometimes never catching anything but it was the peace of sitting on the water and watching the sunrays reflect off the water. He loved fast cars especially his Black Bandit Trans-AM. He was a fun loving person who never met a stranger and showed love to everyone. He spread laughter, joy & fun wherever he went. He impacted a lot of hearts! Fred (Jerome) we will miss you very much and you will always be in our hearts.
