BEAUFORT, S.C. — Charles Warren Price Jr. of Beaufort and Bridgton, Maine, died Thursday, May 29, 2014, in Columbia.
He was born Oct. 15, 1940, in Miami, to Charles Warren Price Sr. and Margaret Robbins.
Warren grew up as an avid outdoorsman in the South Florida Everglades and Keys. He attended Miami Edison High School, where he played football. He was given a football scholarship to Virginia Polytechnic Institute to play quarterback, where he broke records and earned numerous awards. He was a member of the German Club and Delta Kappa Epsilon, graduating in 1963 with a bachelor's degree in business. He married Barbara Philips Price on March 11, 1963, in Asheville, N.C.
Warren joined the U.S. Navy, where he flew the E-1 and E-2. He was a landing signal officer for his squadron aboard the carriers Essex and Lexington. He also played quarterback for the Navy Goshawks.
After leaving the Navy, he was a pilot for Delta Airlines for 31 years. He flew the DC-9, the 727 and retired as a captain on the L1011 in 1999. Following retirement, Warren and Babs moved to Beaufort, where they purchased and operated Plums restaurant downtown.
Warren loved to be active and outdoors. He coached his sons in Pop Warner football, skied in the Maine winters, and played tennis, handball and racquetball. He loved to fish and spearfish. A true jack-of-all-trades, he could build or repair most anything and was especially proud of his woodworking, building beautiful pieces of furniture and taking great joy in giving them to family and friends.
Warren's biggest passion was wild turkey hunting. He was a lifetime member of the National Wild Turkey Federation, known for counting the days until turkey season began. He loved to plan and take trips with his hunting buddies. He considered attaining The Grand Slam, Royal Slam and World Slam of turkey hunting some of his greatest accomplishments in life.
He is survived by his wife of 51 years, Barbara "Babs" Price; daughter Robin Ragland Price; sons Lantz Philips Price and Brett Warren Price and his wife, Stacey Brackett Price; grandchildren Taelor Philips Rubin, Sydney Haden Rubin, Tanner Warren Price, Haley Ragland Price, Hayden Charlotte Price and Grayson Rhodes Price; and three stepsisters.

Passed away either yesterday, May 28 or today May 29. I'm not sure from what but he did have Parkinsons disease and has been in a lot of pain for years after a couple of back surgeries.  We shared the same birthday!
I bet y'all didn't know that he was a college quarterback and was taken in the NFL draft by the Broncos but passed it up to go flying in the Navy.
