Harold is survived by three children: Harold Price, Jr., Mary Holmes, and Lauri Price. Harold has many grandchildren and great grandchildren, all of whom he adored. Our father’s greatest love was his family and friends.

Harold was a master electrician and builder by trade. He was quite the entrepreneur in business to include farming, a doughnut shop and tile shop. Holidays were of great joy to our father because it brought family & friends together and he could make his most recent recipe from “his friend google”.

His hobbies were traveling, throwing his clubs around on the golf course and cooking. He was passionately involved in the Ocala Shrine Club and achieved many milestones with the organization. He lived an honest, ethical, and fulfilling life. He was hot-tempered with a great sense of humor. He was a stranger to no one and had a generous heart of gold. We know our father is “sitting high, looking low”.
