Harry Olen “Butch” Price Jr., 72, of Luray, Va. passed away peacefully on Wednesday morning, March 9, 2022, at Sentara RMH Medical Center in Harrisonburg.
He was born on July 14, 1949, in Luray and was a son of the late Harry Olen Price, Sr. and Ethel Mae Sours Price.
Mr. Price was a member of Calvary Independent Brethren Church in Stanley.
After graduating from Luray High School in 1968, he then completed training for the United States Army National Guard with the First Battalion Company A from July through September 1969 at Fort Polk in Louisiana. Later, he owned and operated his own general contracting and excavating business for many years. He and his wife also own and operate a vacation cabin rental business, which has also resulted in many decades-long friendships with rental guests.
On October 2, 2010, he married the former Patricia Ann Turner, who survives.

He also leaves a legacy of decades-long and even lifelong friendships with a solid group of loyal, committed and reliable friends too numerous to name.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his mother-in-law, Florence Turner of Luray; and special cousins Barbara Ramey and husband Tom of Luray, and Mina Sue Ritchie.
Butch was an avid outdoorsman and loved to hunt, fish, and work with heavy equipment. He also loved to watch westerns and football and looked forward to weekly card games with his friends. He was a loving husband, father figure, grandfather, cousin, and friend, and his family and friends will miss him tremendously.
