Roscoe J. Price


Roscoe J. Price, 69, of Ocoee passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday, Sept. 27, 2017.

He was a lifelong resident of Polk County. He loved the outdoors, whether it was working or hunting.

He was preceded in death by his parents: Arrie and Annie Price; sister, Linda Patterson; and brothers: John Henry Price and Frank Price.

He is survived by his wife of nearly 32 years, Ritia Blankenship Price; sons: Justin (Amber) Price, David (Raven) Price, all of Ocoee, Shawn (Misty) Price of Benton, Jeff Price, and Dusty Price, both of Cleveland; daughter, Tonya Price of Old Fort; 15 grandchildren: Kaleigh and Case Price, Gracie, Maeleigh, and Kamie Price of Ocoee, Cadence and Dawson Price of Benton, Brandi King of Benton, Courtney Fowler and Alexis Goodwin of Cleveland, Caleib and Mady Price of Cleveland, Hether Watson of Fayetteville, N.C., Roscoe "Ross" Ruprecht of Charleston, Henry Ruprecht currently of Fort Lee, Va.; four great-grandchildren: Brodie King of Benton, Skylar Fowler of Cleveland, Waylon Watson of Fayetteville, N.C., and Zoey Goodwin of Cleveland.

Even though all of his grandchildren and great-grandchildren were special, there was a special place in his heart for Gracie and Maeleigh Price.

Also surviving are sisters: Arlene Bramlett of Cleveland, and Teena (Frank) Brannon of Benton; brothers: Ronnie (Wanda) Price of Benton, Clyde Price; special friend, Mari Schwarting of Olympia, Wash.; and several nieces and nephews.

“The family expresses our sincerest thanks to everyone in our time of sorrows. He was a very private man, and we as a family want to abide by his wishes, so there will be no formal service.

“The immediate family will have a small graveside gathering. We invite anyone else to join us in remembrance at a later time to be announced.” 

Companion Funeral Home has charge of arrangements.
