James “Jim” H. Price, 89 of Pottstown, widower of Georgie (Nester) Price, passed away Saturday, November 11th at Manatawny Manor in Pottstown.
Born in Binghamton, New York, he was the son of the late Walter and Loretta (O’Neill) Price.
Jim joined the Marine Corp. in 1953. After serving, he returned home to work at Bethlehem Steel until the Pottstown plant closed. He worked many jobs to support his family, ending with Stainless Inc. in Pine Forge. He was a member of New Hanover Lutheran Church, where, for years, he supported his nephews’ scout Troop 367 on countless hikes, including the 50 miles Appalachian Trail hike, and Camp Delmont. Jim or “Jimbo” as his Pottstown jacket read, was a huge fan of all Pottstown sports, never missing a baseball, basketball, or football game or wrestling match. He was a wonderful man and loved by many.
Surviving are his daughters Vicki L. Mutter, wife of Timothy, and Penny L. Frymoyer; sister-in-law Alice Nester; grandchildren Edward Terwilliger, Ashley Mutter, Hayley Quigley, wife of Zachary, and Adam Terwilliger. Also surviving are several great grandchildren, nieces and nephews, and his Burger King buddies. Along with his parents, Jim is predeceased by his sister Pam Hudelson and brothers Walter Price and Bob Price.
