Gordon Price loved his family. He had a zest for life. Gordon loved singing.
His funeral service on May 4th. reflected the love and respect of his family. There was also a strong choral community presence.
The Reverend Robert Balfour conducted the service at Trinity Chapel, Penyffordd.
Gordon Price Tributes
Daughter Julie led the family tributes with pride. Describing Gordon as a caring, self-effacing family man. Always ready to help anyone.
Born and bred in Dyserth, the son of a policeman, Gordon moved with the family to Penyffordd in 1949.
Gordon married Mary in 1957 and life became full of activity with many pastimes to enjoy.
They both enjoyed cycling, table-tennis and bowling. Gordon’s impeccable organisational skills made him a natural for organising bowling trips abroad.
Gordon Price the Singer
A singing career started in Dyserth as a boy soprano. His love of music continued into adulthood.
Being a member of a male voice choir was an important part of his social life.
Gordon was a long serving member of Rhos Male Voice Choir and Cantorion Colin Jones. He was also the treasurer for each choir and enjoyed tours to Germany and the USA.
It was appropriate that a Cantorion Colin Jones CD provided the processional music for the service.
The moving ‘Deep Harmony’ (O Iesu Mawr) and the uplifting rendition of ‘Sanctus’.
Caring for Mary meant that Gordon had to give up his singing. The later loss of Mary was a huge blow to Gordon.
Gordon then joined the Denbigh and District Male Voice Choir.
He found it to be a source of comfort. Julie thanked Arwyn Roberts and choir members for making him feel welcome.
Long term choral friend David Jones also joined at the same time and made their concert debuts in 2014.
At the service Denbigh and District Male Voice Choir sang ‘Eli Jenkins Prayer’and ‘Amen.’
Grandson, Michael said he idolised his Taid. “He made everyone feel special, always ready with advice and support. I will try and uphold his values.
His passing has left a gaping hole in my life.”
