Troy Lee Price

Odessa, WA

Troy Lee Price, former longtime Wenatchee Valley resident, passed away March 26, 2014, from an extended illness at his home in Odessa, WA. He was surrounded by family members.

Troy was born July 23, 1953, to Calvin Roscoe and Ruby Lee Price in Muleshoe, TX. They preceded him in death, along with his youngest sister, Terri Lee Kesterson. He was survived by his special companion, Kathryn Gregorich of Odessa; one daughter, Anjolene Price from Peshastin, WA; two brothers, L.J. Price (Charlene) from Kingman, AZ and Don Price (Debra) from North Bend, WA; also, two sisters, Alta Messenger (Steve) from Yuma, AZ and Carolyn Porrazzo from Kingman, AZ; and several nieces and nephews.

His passion was music. Troy started playing drums at age 15. He has played professionally in bands locally, and across the U.S. and Canada. The highlights of his career included recordings with bands Sugar Beat, Benny and The Jets, and The Jolene Price Band. He was a warm up band for Elvin Bishop and played back up for Bonnie Guitar. In recent years, Troy built his own recording studio with his friend, Butch Jarschke. He also played in the band Hangin’ Loose. His other professions included meat cutting and concrete finishing. His hobbies included train and coin collecting, fishing, Sci-Fi nostalgia, his pets and motorcycles. Troy was a 36 year renal transplant survivor, given to him by his brother, L.J. As a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, he fearlessly faced terminal cancer due to his belief in the plan of salvation.

All are invited to attend Memorial Services to be held at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, located at 2821 Easy Street in Monitor, WA, on Wednesday, April 2, 2014, at 6:00 p.m.
