My grandfather, Master Sergent Lester Price (retired Army), was lost to us early on the morning of Thursday, April 25th 2019. He had only recently been diagnosed with a sudden and aggressive cancer on his thyroid gland. This came as a massive shock to my grandmother Linda Price, his wife of 21 years. Lester had been an active and able bodied man, in spite of his 91 years of age. He had always found chores or busy work to do in the house or yard especially during his retirement. Before marrying my grandmother he had worked in several positions and companies not to discount his 27 years of service in the Army. Many friends and family know him as a charismatic, strong, and well-read man who loved God and home. He took a leadership role in his church assisting with functions, cooking, cleaning, service and program coordination. In addition while he worked in insurance he touched the lives of many families across the DC Metro area. During the course of their marriage my grandmother had suffered a stroke making my grandfather her sole means of support. Now my family and I are starting this GoFundMe to assist her with the funeral expenses and other financial obligations she has to deal with due to the loss of her rock and life partner.
