We lost a dear friend last week.

Bill Price volunteered for our agency for 25 years—that’s as long as some of our employees have been alive.  Even at 88 years old, Bill was here, working in our property and evidence division, as recently as just a few weeks ago.  Over the years, Bill has handled what would likely literally equate to tons of paperwork for our lab.  He assisted with drug destroys.  He played an integral role in the relocation of our property division a couple of times over the last couple of decades.  He’s been invaluable to our agency.

For Bill, a spirit of service came naturally.  He was a United States Navy veteran.  He spent most of his professional life as a court reporter.  In addition to the countless hours he spent volunteering here, he also rode the trails along the Riverfront as a volunteer trail host for Parks and Recreation, ensuring our community had a safe and clean space to enjoy the outdoors, which he loved so much.

We could go on and on about the robust life Bill lived and the time he shared with

us.  But we won’t, because he did all things without the desire for fanfare.  Nonetheless, we’ll miss him.  He contributed much to our agency and to Grand Junction as a whole.  Bill’s life touched many in this community who may never even have met him, through his passion for giving of his time and talents.  He’ll be missed by his loving family, and we’re honored to consider ourselves an extension of that family.

Rest peacefully, Bill.
