William L. Price
William “Bill” Lee Price, 74, of Bergton, walked through the gates of Heaven to spend eternity with his Lord and Savior, July 12, 2019, at his home.
Mr. Price was born May 29, 1945 in Shenandoah County and was a son of the late Jesse and Dorothy Stroop Price.
He was a supervisor and machine man for George’s Food. Bill was a charter member of the Bergton Volunteer Fire Company and served on the board of directors until his death. He loved hunting, especially turkey and deer, and passed his love for hunting onto his daughter. Until his health no longer permitted him, he attended New Life Apostolic Church in Mathias, W.Va.
