Weston McNeely Price
Weston McNeely Price, 46, died Thursday, Sept. 14, 2017 in Lake Oswego, Oregon.
Weston was born June 7, 1971 in Missouri and was the son of Sally White Price and Howard I. Price II. Weston spent his formative years at Hilton Head Island, S.C. and Atlanta, Ga. He lived for much of his adult life in New England and had just recently moved to Oregon.
Weston studied mathematics and computer science at the University of Southern Maine, history and literature at William and Mary and graduated from the University of Mississippi with a BA in history and literature. He deeply admired the writings of William Faulkner. During his time as a student in Oxford, Mississippi, Weston worked at the William Faulkner House as a docent and researcher. Weston was a lover of words and wrote poetry continually throughout his life.
After college Weston enjoyed a successful career as a software engineer/ developer authoring codes still in use by major corporations. He spent 20 plus years in that field.
Privately, Weston was intensely spiritual and a tireless researcher of theology and Christianity in particular. After years of study, he concluded simply that “God is Love.”
Weston could converse on any subject with ease and had an amazing recall ability. He was known for his charm and wicked sense of humor. He was greatly loved and will be sorely missed by his family and friends.
He was preceded in death by maternal grandparents Jack C. and Ruth Weston White of Hilton Head Island, paternal grandparents Mrs. Billie Deaton Price of N.C., H.I. Price of Florida.
He is survived by his wife Kaiyanna Price, his mother Sally White Price of Colorado, father Howard I. Price II, of Florida (both parents formerly of Hilton Head Island) and many cousins, aunts and uncles.
A memorial service will be held at St. Luke’s Church, Hilton Head Island, S.C. at 10 a.m. Friday, October 20 with a reception to follow in St. Luke’s Mission and Ministry Building.
Contributions in Weston’s memory may be made to Hilton Head Humane Association or St. Luke’s Church, Hilton Head.
