FARR WEST – Gregory Scott Price passed away suddenly on April 28, 2024. He was born on December 11, 1956 in Ogden, Utah, to son of Glade S and Connie Hokanson Price. He was raised in Ogden, graduated from Ogden High School, and attended Weber State College.

Greg met Lynita Taylor at Weber State and they married on August 25, 1979 in the Ogden LDS Temple. He affectionately called her his “sweetheart,” and they were always on the go to one place or another. He worked extensively in sheet metal, spending most of his years at Hill Air Force Base as an aircraft mechanic and later as a scheduler.

Greg served in the England mission and many other callings in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He was an active High Priest in the Farr West Ward, most recently as Ward Mission Leader.

Greg wasn’t a huge fan of small pets, but Buddy, their Yorkie dog, won him over and will miss snuggling up to him on the couch.

Over the years, he has enjoyed a number of hobbies, including hiking, camping, tickling and teasing his grandkids, guitar, and building bird houses. He was an avid reader and loved Tom Clancy novels, the Jack Reacher series, and especially non-fiction, reading extensively in history and religion. He and Lynita spent many hours riding trails with their side-by-side group. He spent years biking home from Hill Air Force Base and completed multiple half marathons and a full marathon.

Whether it was coaching his kids’ soccer teams or helping his grandkids from the sideline, fixing his kids’ houses and cars, he had a generous spirit and was always willing to lend a hand. He has over 100 gallons of blood and regularly shared his extra donated PTO hours with co-workers in need.

Greg had a knack for talking with people and making them feel welcome. His kind and friendly love for him is the reason so many people hold him in high regard. He particularly loved being with his grandkids, and they will always remember him for his good-natured teasing and phrases like, “Be careful, it’s a jungle out there!” or “What do you mean hey!?” Hay is for horses!” He was a great listener and always provided thoughtful support.

Greg is survived by his wife, Lynita, of Farr West, one son and three daughters, Trevor (Emily) Price, Harrisville; Shandee (Will) Bates, Layton; Tasha (Brandon) Sturdevant, Perry; and Karin (Garret) Spendlove, Clearfield. He has 12 granddaughters and 1 grandson.

He was preceded in death by his parents, and is survived by his 7 siblings, Celeste Taylor, Debbie Mumford, Adair Macfarlane, Sterling Price, Laura Syme, Darwin Price, and foster sister, Sally Clayton.
