James L. Price, Jr.
Mr. James Larrell Price, Jr., known fondly as “Jimmy” or “Hotshot,” age 47, of New Castle, DE, passed away suddenly on Saturday, December, 22, 2012.
A native Delawarean, Jimmy was born in Wilmington on February 28, 1965, son of the late James L. Price, Sr. and Brenda Mae Freezer Price. He made his career as a heavy equipment operator and was employed with Leo Friel Tree Service in Wilmington.
Jimmy had a great love for riding motorcycles throughout his life and was also a gifted motorcycle mechanic. A former member of the Pagans motorcycle club, he was a lifelong member of the Zero Tolerance Crew.

Jimmy was a devoted father who loved his children very much and put in a lot of effort to spend time with them, despite the circumstances. Family meant a lot to him. He was a fun-loving, positive, caring man and always the life of the party. BBQs & pit fires in the backyard with family and friends were some of his favorite times.

Price, whom he married in September of this year; children, Angus, Malcolm, Brian, Brenda, and Agnes Price; stepchildren, Amber, Gus, Nick and Cassey Garneski; brother, Bob Fuller, aunt, Blanche Wegman; cousin, Richard Wegman; and step grandchildren, McKayla Marie Spence and Richard Spence III (“JR”).
