Obituary

Rex Jerry Price, beloved father, grandfather, and great grandfather passed away on August 19, 2022 in Dallas, Texas.  Rex is now home with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, celebrating at the biggest gathering in heaven.

Rex was born in Sayre, Oklahoma on January 28, 1937, the second oldest of three children, to Lula Mae (Cooper) Price and Warren Price.  At a young age Rex’s family moved from Sayre, Oklahoma to Alameda, California.  Rex graduated from Alameda High School in 1955.   He met his soulmate, Sue Ann King in High School and they married on July 1, 1956.  Rex enlisted in the U.S. Army in 1956 in Oakland, California and was transferred to Ladd AFB in Fort Wainwright, Alaska where he served in the Light Weapons Infantry.  Rex was a distinguished military veteran earning a Good Conduct Medal and Honorable Discharge in 1962.  He then began a career with the Army & Air Force Exchange Service living in Washington State, Hawaii and Dallas, Texas where he later retired.  Rex was actively involved in the community and served on the Board of Prestonwood Country Club Condominiums for many years.

Rex is preceded in death by his wife, Sue Price, his parents Warren Price and Lula Mae Zatica (Cooper), his brothers Elmer Price and Phillip Price.  He is survived by daughters Kim (Gino) Cantu, Kelly (Ken) Eberhart, grandchildren Zach (Hannah) Eberhart, Paige Eberhart, and great granddaughter Landri Eberhart, several nieces and nephews and a host of close friends.

The family would like to thank Dr. Michael Motta, Dr. Ronald Kerr, Dr. Shaun Murphy, Dr. Bruce Wall and the numerous caregivers for their constant care for Rex especially during his final days as well as his extended family of neighbors and staff at Prestonwood Country Condominiums for their friendship over the years.  A private memorial will be held for the immediate family.  Memorial donations can be made to the Texas Kidney Foundation, txkidney.org.

Rex was most proud of the family he and Sue raised and he was very devoted to their two daughters, grandchildren, and great granddaughter.  Rex was a kind-hearted person, with a great sense of humor.  He will be greatly missed by all who had the privilege of knowing him.

"If I could give 6 stars I would. Aria made a difficult easier to deal with by basically taking care of everything in an efficient but very empathetic manner. I can speak highly enough of Dusty Martin, who helped us with all of the planning and logistics. He was incredibly understanding and helpful."

"Nothing prepares you for the grief you go through when losing a child. I called this funeral home at 2:00 am broken and could barely talk. The amount of compassion and empathy they showed me immediately let me know I found the right place to cremate my son. I cannot thank them enough for their professionalism, SINCERE concern, and commitment to making sure my son was honored in the most respectful way. I hope this Funeral home values her as much as my family and I do."

"I can’t say enough about how helpful and professional Dusty Martin, the funeral director at the Aria Cremation location on NW Highway has been. From my initial call, he was kind and informative. My friend died at home while on hospice and she was picked up in about an hour after receiving the call from the hospice nurse. The person who arrived to pick her up was also very professional/respectful and allowed us to take as much time with her as we wished. When I met with Dusty the next day about arrangements, he explained the process and options available without being pushy or trying to “sell” extras. Throughout the process, he kept me informed and, for example, was careful to be certain I understood the cost of the obituary I wanted and offered some options for reducing that cost if I wished. When I stopped by for another reason and started talking about some of the problems I was having with the pictures and media I hoped to use at a memorial lunch I was planning, he not only listened patiently but offered technology advice and let me use his personal media player. I have had experience arranging cremations for four others using two other local companies, and this experience with Dusty at Aria has been by far the best one I have had."

"My Daddy’s service and our family experience at Aria Northwest Highway was truly blessed. Funeral Director Dustin Martin is the kind of person that you would like to see on a more regular basis – but in his industry – you hope to not see him that often. That being said – THANK YOU DUSTIN for your unending kindness, compassion and friendship through the process. Meeting you and discussing Dallas History, Find A Grave and my Dad’s lifelong contributions to the great City of Dallas was simply wonderful! In memory of my dad James A. Dodd, Sr. – I want to personally thank you and let you know that you made everything better in that moment. Your calling to “Be There” is spot on. Aria has a one in a million guy in you! Bling Blinky of TEXAS Shout Out: God Bless You!!"
