Stephen Eugene was born on August 8, 1952, in Aledo, Illinois to Paul E. & Mary E. (Hofer) Price. He graduated from Aledo High School in 1970 and worked on the family farm before joining Dellitt Ag & Crop Production Services. Steve retired as a concrete finisher from Union #18 after working for 3-D Concrete. 

Steve enjoyed the outdoors and shared his love of hunting and fishing with his grandsons. He would pass on the trophy, so they could claim one. Steve also spent many nights watching his grandchildren’s ball games. He was the proud owner of his grandfather’s mail truck, a 1948 Dodge Power Wagon. Steve was a hardworking man that had a great sense of humor, a laugh known to all and often enjoyed a Busch Light with family and friends.

Steve’s survivors include his children: Shellie Price & Eric Skinner and Julie Young all of Aledo; and Evan & Tricia Price of Naples, Italy; his mother, Mary Price of Aledo; grandchildren: Andrew & Erin Smith; Jake Saltzman, Emma Saltzman, Alex Young & Brook Allcock, Vance Young, and Brady, Kate and Georgia Price; great-grandchildren: Emmy, Addy, Lennox & Ronan; siblings: Gary & Donna Price of Reynolds; Duane & Candace Price of Aledo; Linda & Ken Hoffman of LeClaire, IA; Flint & Lisa Price of Aledo; and 6 nieces.
