Sylvester, joined New Friendship Baptist Church in Greenville Georgia as a
child. As he grew into manhood he was not confined by the traditional way of
worship but choose to worship God in his own personal way, by enjoying all of
God's marvelous works and giving thanks. Always leaning on the foundations
taught by his parents, God, family, and work.

accomplished basketball player. Upon graduating he joined the United States

career in trucking as a long distance driver and later as an accomplished
construction worker with his work being displayed all over the metropolitan

Syl, was the father to one son Antonio Price. He later married Melissa Ingram
and to that union had two daughters Keysha and Valorie Price. Syl, was a quiet
gentle soul with a distinctive laugh and heart as open as a prairie, always
loving his family and friends.

Price; his brothers William, Willie Jr., Albert, Sam, and Bennie. He was also
preceded in death by his sisters Ruby Ford and Juanita Favors.
