Charles J. Price died Tuesday, Nov. 2, at age 62. Price worked in the VSU’s Bookstore during the 1990’s, and was eventually promoted to Warehouse Supervisor.
His dedication to serving the students and faculty and his vibrant personality made him a beloved member of the VSU family. Price was one of the first members to return as a retiree.
His commitment to VSU was even transferred to his wife and family.
“The main thing I learned from him was the way things were run on campus and how things operate in the community. He loved what he did,” Bethanie Brogden, Director of University Stores said.
Price was best known for his entertaining character, and professional attitude, as he refused to wear anything but a professional suit.
“He loved his student employees more than anything,” Brogden said.
The funeral was held Friday, Nov. 5 in the Carson McLane Funeral Home Chapel, where 25 honorary pall bearers were present.
