Family Mourns The Loss Of Father Of Two

A Bellevue family mourns the loss of a brother, son and father.

Twenty-seven-year-old Joshua Price was killed last Friday when he lost control of his motorcycle and crashed into an on coming car near 132nd and Harrison streets.

Price's family says he was a strong family man who dearly loved his two children.

“He's always wanted to get a motorcycle, i tried to discourage it.”

The family of Josh Price reminisces through photographs.

Tamika Washington is Price's sister.

“Very fun to be around,” she said. “We were just writing some stuff about him last night...big jokester, always laughing, making jokes, very business minded.”

Price came to Nebraska from Alabama in 2002, graduated high school here and went to college. And he turned that love of business into a career in sales.

“Very charismatic,” Tamika said. “Anybody in sales has to be charismatic.”

But that all ended last Friday morning. Price was killed when he hit an on-coming car head on.

“He was going around a vehicle and both his wheels touched grass that may have kind of been damp,” Tamika said.

A visitation and service celebrating the life of Josh Price is set for Wednesday afternoon at Bible Truth Ministires just south of Olde Towne in Bellevue. Josh's family wants to make sure his memory doesn't simply fade away.

Price leaves behind two children...five year old Jeremiah and two year old Jayda.

“He loved his children, spent a lot of time with them, taking them places they loved spending time with him,” Tamika said.

Jeremiah turned five two weeks ago. Price made sure to spend quality time with his son.

“Josh took him out shopping and took him to the pizza machine, so yeah, he had a nice time,” Tamika said. “Very fun to be around and he's going to be greatly missed.”

Price will be buried in Alabama.

A fund for his two children has been set up at Sac Federal Credit Union.

Donations can be made at any area Sac Federal Credit Union to the Joshua Price Memorial fund. All of the proceeds will go to Jeremiah and Jayda for a college fund.
