(10 Apr 1945 - 28 Jan 2008)

Hampton High School Class of 1964

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   We have still another sad edition of the NNHS Newsletter tonight.       Eason Price, Hampton High School, Class of 1964, passed away in Hampton on Monday, January 28, 2008 at the age of 63.

   My own memories of him are simply that of a gorgeous young man from a rival school that I knew only by sight and name.  He was obviously one of Hampton's most respected and beloved citizens, and we mourn his loss.


   From F.A. Saunders (Hampton HS - '64) of VA - 01/28/08 - "HHS Class of 64":

Classmates, 

Was just notified that
     Eason Price passed away today.  He was diagnosed with cancer two years ago and at that time doctors gave him possibly 6 months................well, he fought the fight with a great attitude and a positive outlook and lived to the fullest for over two years.  He went into work every day until just a couple weeks ago. 

Talked with Bruce tonight and he said funeral arrangements will probably be in the paper on Wednesday with visitation most likely Wednesday evening at Parklawn......

   I'm very sorry to hear this, F.A.! Please extend our sincerest sympathies to Eason's family as well as to your classmates.


      From Gloria Woolard Price (Hampton HS - '65) of FL - 01/31/08 - "     Eason Price":

This is the obit for Eason Price.  Would you please put it in the next newsletter.....thanks! 

   Certainly, Gloria.  Thank you for sending the expanded obituary.  I'm so sorry for the loss of your friend.

It is so sad to hear of an old Southampton neighborhood friend passing away. We shared some great times together as kids.

I am going to miss my friend, Eason. For many years, we enjoyed countless visits in his studio. He was always a willing font of information, I will treasure what I garnered from our conversations.

Never have I known a more unassuming, focused, talented and determined person than Eason. His quiet perseverance during his long illness was admirable and astonishing. I believe he found peace in his life -- I trust that he is in greater peace, now.

Condolences to his family and friends. All are in my prayers.

Eason Price is and will always be a character all his own. He was only matched by his father ,Roy Sr. As both family & friend I was touched by the Price family. Eason always made time for us and I enjoyed visiting his office to listen to his tales .He will be sorely missed.

I was so very sorry to hear of Eason's passing and my heartfelt sympathy goes out to all of his family members. My family and I lived next door to the Prices for several years in Southampton. Years ago my son Skip Singleton wanted a signet ring. Skip designed it; and Eason, the master of goldsmithing, made it perfectly. Since Skip's death in 1998, I have worn the ring in remembrance of Skip...and now will wear it in remembrance of Eason also.

I will always remember Eason's knowing look when we planned a piece of jewelry together. My husband and I wear wedding rings designed and made by Eason. He had that quiet gentle spirit that spread to everyone he met. We will miss you, Eason.

I will always remember my walks on the beach with Uncle Eason, and our philosophical conversations. He was always one that I knew would take the time to talk and walk, a man of gentle kindness and quick wit. I am glad to know that in his own words, "the Jewish carpenter and I are tight." My emotions now are to his family as they face such a loss, my tears for the memories now complete.

I will always remember Eason as the good looking guy that gave me my nick name in school and sometimes when I run into people from the past that is what they call me! Eason had a smile that melt any heart!
My prayers to the family. May God be with you all at this time.

To all of Eason's siblings and spouses, his wife and children, May God be with and comfort all of you as you experience this heavy sadness. Yes, South Hampton loses another of it's children; too many in recent years. The Price family has always been special to me, from tending vegetables in Amos's garden and playing in the barn to watching the girls ride horses in later years. Eason will be sadly missed by all of us.

Growing up on Henry Street next door to the Prices was always fun....Roy, Sr., sweet, sweet Margie, Amy, Peggy (my sorority sister), Molly, Josh, and, of course, the tall, blond, good-looking 'boy' on whom I had a major crush. To that boy's family, may God bless you in your time of sorrow. Take comfort in knowing that Eason is with his mom, dad, and, his beloved Sandy.

I have known Eason for over 30 years and treasured every moment. I will always remember his wonderful smile, his great view of life, and his incredible talent of creating the most beautiful artwork. Eason, may you rest in peace....your "gift of life" will always be with us in this world and someday we will meet again.
Your Friend,
Barry Epstein

What Wondrous Love Is This?

Words by Alexander Means
Music by William Walker, 1835
 

What wondrous love is this, O my soul, O my soul!
What wondrous love is this, O my soul!
What wondrous love is this that caused the Lord of bliss
To bear the dreadful curse for my soul, for my soul,
To bear the dreadful curse for my soul.

When I was sinking down, sinking down, sinking down,
When I was sinking down, sinking down,
When I was sinking down beneath Godís righteous frown,
Christ laid aside His crown for my soul, for my soul,
Christ laid aside His crown for my soul.

To God and to the Lamb, I will sing, I will sing;
To God and to the Lamb, I will sing.
To God and to the Lamb Who is the great 'I Am';
While millions join the theme, I will sing, I will sing;
While millions join the theme, I will sing.

And when from death Iím free, Iíll sing on, Iíll sing on;
And when from death Iím free, Iíll sing on.
And when from death Iím free, Iíll sing and joyful be;
And through eternity, Iíll sing on, Iíll sing on;
And through eternity, Iíll sing on.
