Israel Eugene Price

Israel Eugene Price, 65, of Hendersonville, went home to be with the Lord on Thursday, January 18, 2018. Born in Moore County, he was the brother of the late Marilyn Price Kennebeck of Fayetteville.

Israel served in the United States Navy during the Vietnam War. He was a career welder with Rockwell International and Arvin Meritor. He will long be remembered for his gifts of the best biscotti ever made, his love of a good conversation, and his compassionate spirit.

Israel is survived by five first cousins: Rosemary Blackburn of Maryland, Bruce Carlton of Fayetteville, Robert and Willard Carlton of Charlotte, and Kent Carlton of Warsaw.

    Israel was a good friend that I met in 1977 at Blue Ridge Community College. He later helped my family in many ways with his amazing handy-man skills and wouldn't take any money for the work. He was very generous with his time and money and loved serving people. I am so sorry to learn of his passing - in true Israel fashion, he kept his situation to himself. I look forward to seeing you in Heaven, Israel!

I loved his biscotti and his pimento cheese was the best with the bread and butter pickle recipe he shared. My how I will miss him. We loved him very much. God bless his family. I know his at home with the lord. ❤️
