Obituary of Troy Lon Price
Troy Lon Price, 70, of Willow Park, TX, passed away peacefully under the care of hospice on March 19th, 2023.
Born in Hobbs, NM on June 9, 1952, Troy was a long-time resident of Lubbock, TX. He worked as a manager in the family-owned Bill Price’s Western Wear store and then later Doc’s Liquor store. At the tail end of his career, Troy opened and ran his own Woody’s Liquor store before retiring in 2018 and moving to be close to family in the DFW area.
Troy was well known in Lubbock. He had many friends with whom he enjoyed fishing and playing golf. He also enjoyed his many customers who traded with him over the decades. He was always grateful for loyal patrons and took pride in serving them well.
A gifted athlete, Troy earned multiple sports honors at Monterey High School including All District running back selection, UIL Baseball All-Tournament Team recognition, and a place in the state track and field finals. After graduating high school in 1971, Troy competed on the then-West Texas State University Track and Field team.
Troy coached youth sports for many years and served as president of the Coronado High School Football Booster Club in 1994-1995. He was always supportive of his own children’s interests and was respected by their friends. Troy could always be counted on to root for and look after the underdog. This made him a faithful friend and a loyal Texas Tech sports fan.
Above all, Troy loved his family who could always count on him when the chips were down. His passing is a sadness, but the family rejoices in the peace he had with God and all others in the end.
Troy was preceded in death by his parents, Bill Byron Price (1925-2003) and Betty Seay Price (1929-2001).
He leaves behind his high school sweetheart and beloved wife of 49 years Connie Price; son Ryon Price and his wife Irie; daughter Brooke Price; grandchildren Gabrielle Price, Daniel Price, and Emmanuel “Bo” Price; brother Byron Price and his wife Jeannie; and many loved and respected cousins, in-laws, and dear friends.
