Frank Paul Price

December 29, 1931 - May 29, 2012


December 29, 1931 – May 29, 2012
It is with our deepest heartfelt sadness that we announce that Frank Price of Nelson, B.C. passed away suddenly at Kootenay Boundary Hospital in Trail.
Devoted husband of 59 years to his beloved wife Shirley (nee Hoffman), cherished Father of David, Diana and husband Jeff, and Paul, loving Grandfather of Christopher, Brianna, Sara, Evan and Ryan, Great Grandfather of Emily and Presley. Frank was predeceased by his parents Frank Sr. and Pauline Price and is survived by his brothers Bob and Ron.
Frank was born and raised in Toronto, Ontario. He attended St. Michaels College there and enjoyed playing football and hockey. Frank met the love of his life Shirley when they were just teenagers and they were married in 1953. Frank worked in the motion picture and theatre industry for 30 years before moving to Nelson in 1978 where he owned and operated the Starlight Drive-in Theatre. Over the next 10 years there were many a good memory of Frank working at the box office or serving popcorn in the snack bar and of course patrolling the field making sure everyone was enjoying themselves. Frank moved on in the late 80’s and worked at Speedy Auto Glass until his retirement in 1997. In his senior years Frank mostly took it easy, enjoying his family and home.
Frank Price has been an inspiration to others and a special friend to many. He will be sadly missed by those who love him.
