Departed: 02/13/2022 (Apopka)
Obituary Preview: October 12, 1942, was a special day in the quiet district of Woodlands in St Elizabeth as Jerry and Rebecca Pryce welcomed a bouncing baby boy into their family. He was the last of their 8 children and was named Milford Uriah Pryce. At the tender age of 6 years old, he migrated from St Elizabeth to Portland and there he grew up in the community of Manchioneal. His education began at the Manchioneal All Age ( now Primary and Junior High School) and was completed at the Happy Grove High School. Throughout his adult life, he was a very dedicated and skillful mason and he was always commended for his talent. Like many young people, Milford had a passion for traveling overseas. This dream was fulfilled in 1969 when he got the opportunity to leave Jamaica for the United States of America on a Farm Work Programme. He would later become an official citizen in 1983 and he continued the trade he loved so much until illness took a toll on him. He will always be remembered as a jovial and hardworking person who had a deep affection for his family, especially his children. On the evening of February 13, 2022, his earthly journey came to an end as the maker saw it fit to call him home to rest after a prolonged period of illness. He is survived by his 2 children, Howard and Lorna,11 Grandchildren, 6 Great Grandchildren, and several other relatives and friends. Gone but forever in our hearts as we cherish the moments shared with Milford Uriah Pryce. May his soul Rest in Peace.
