Leonard Stanley Price
It is with heartfelt sadness that we announce the passing of Leonard “Len” Stanley Price on May 4, 2012 in Vernon, BC after a short illness. Len was born on August 12, 1930 in Enderby, BC. He was well known to all throughout the Okanagan Valley. Len grew up on the family farm on Hullcar Road and remained there until his retirement in 2005. Besides farming, Len logged throughout the area. Len will be deeply missed by his loving wife Pat Cahoon; and his children Bobbie, Jamey, Marty, Wayne, Lynne (Pudge), Patti (Alan), and Nancy. Len will also be missed by his grandchildren Wesley, Hunter, Pieper, Jordan, Nathan, Stanley, Vicky, Trent, Marty, Shayne, Shyla, Denai and Cody; his seven great-grandchildren; and many extended family members and friends. He was predeceased by his parents Rachael and Stanley Price.
Last Will and Testament of a Farmer
to my wife: My overdraft at the bank. Maybe she can explain it.
to my son: Equity on my car. Now he will have to go to work to meet the payments.
to my banker: My soul. He has the mortgage on it anyway.
to my neighbor: My clown suit. He will need it if he continues to farm as he has in the past.
to the farm credit corporation: My unpaid bills. They took some real chances on me, and I want to do something for them.
to the Canadian Wheat Board: My grain bin. I was planning to let them take it next year anyway.
to the AG rep: Fifty bushels of corn to see if he can hit the high market. I never did.
to the junk man: All my machinery. He’s had his eyes on it for years.
to my undertaker: A special request I want six implement dealers and six fertilizer dealers for my pallbearers. They are used to carrying me.
to the weatherman: Rain, sleet and snow for the funeral please. No sense in having good weather now.
to the grave-digger: Don’t bother. The hole I am in now should be big enough.
to the monument-maker: Set up a jig for the epitaph – Here lies a farmer who has now properly assumed all of his obligations.
A Memorial Service will be held at Pudge and Lynne’s residence (4389 Hullcar Road, Armstrong, BC) at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 12, 2012. If raining, the Memorial Service will be held at the Hullcar Hall (4194 Hullcar Road, Armstrong, BC). Please call 250-546-6555 for driving directions.
