Al Price

November 6, 1925 — May 19, 2018

Goodland, Kansas

Longtime Goodland, Kansas resident, George Albert Price, “Al”, 92, passed away on Saturday, May 19, 2018 at the Goodland Regional Medical Center in Goodland.

Al was born on November 6, 1925 in Adair, Oklahoma to Charley and Oma Ellen (Mosier) Price.  He was one of two children.

Having lost his parents at an early age, some of his schooling was in Joplin, Missouri at the St. Joseph’s Children’s Home.  As a teenager, he moved to Crowley, Colorado, where his brother Bill lived.  There he met the Charley Robison family.  Charley, Ruby and their children and became his second family.

In 1951, he joined the Army Signal Corps where he received his training in communications.  After returning home, he took a correspondence course from the Cleveland Institute of Technology; where he received his First Class FCC License which prepared him for a lifetime occupation which he loved.

In the late 50s, he moved to St. Francis, Kansas and worked with the gas company.  There he met and married Hilda Rogers. They had one daughter, Lori.  In 1969, the family moved to Goodland, where Al worked as a broadcast engineer at KLOE until his retirement in 1995.

From an early age Al loved to tinker.  Nothing was safe from being taken apart and hopefully reassembled.  Al also loved to travel.  He got the travel bug when he was stationed in Japan.  He was able to travel for the next 60 years.  He also enjoyed photography and fishing.  In later years, he loved tinkering with his computer.

Preceding Al in death were his wife Hilda, his parents, his foster parents and his brother Bill Wells.

He is survived by his daughter Lori (Dewayne) Lalicker of Goodland, granddaughter Trista (Mike) Zimmerman of Goodland, three grandsons Brett Lalicker of Phoenix, Arizona, and Ryan Lalicker and Matthew Lalicker of Goodland, KS; as well as two great granddaughters Alexis and Brynlee Zimmerman of Goodland, KS.
