Price lived and worked in Oxford, MS until 2019 when he returned to Myrtle, MS and worked remotely. Price was a friend to all and although he could be quiet and reserved, he loved to laugh, socialize and share his dry wit with friends and family. He loved video games and played with a community of friends from all over the world. He loved a good game of trivia and with his vast knowledge of all things, everyone loved him as a partner. Grilling out for friends and acquaintances before Ole Miss games was a time everyone enjoyed at his little corner of Jackson Ave and MLK. He enjoyed watching and discussing all sports, especially Ole Miss Sports and always enjoyed a lively discussion of history or current events. Price loved all animals, but especially loved his rescue dog, Luna Bear, who died in February. Price is survived by his parents, Joe McCarley and Cynthia Price Rials of Myrtle, MS, his sister, Brittany Rials of Orlando, FL and his uncle, Charlie Epps (Dora) of Jackson, MS.
