Richard Price

d. September 23, 2016

Richard Wayne Price known to many as “Poochie” or “Pops”, passed away Friday, September 23, 2016 in his home in Dillwyn, VA.   He leaves behind his four children Deborah Peters, Billy Price, Tim Price, and Michael Willis.  Also, his sister Betty Maney and brother’s William and Steve Price.

Pops was a simple man who in the last couple of years of his life enjoyed most of his time outside with his beloved animals Alice, Jasmine and Duncan.  He enjoyed working with his hands whether it be on an old car or chinking a beautiful log home.  His greatest joy over the past years was watching all of his nieces, nephews, grandchildren and great grandchildren grow up.

This last year of his life was full of rough times but he made it through each day with the help of his family.  His face would light up with every hug and kiss!

Pops will be missed by his family and all of his friends.
