William Elijah Price was born to Sarah Scott and Jason Price, Sr. on December 15, 2007, in Arcata. He entered into eternal rest on August 13, 2023.

How do you sum up the life of such a wonderful, beloved young man? William attended Jack Norton and Trinity Valley Elementary schools and was ready to start his sophomore year at Hoopa Valley High School, where he was a member of the Hoopa Warriors football team. He was an active, fun-loving young man who enjoyed adventure of any sort with his family and friends. He especially loved swimming and playing games with his cousins.

William was the epitome of kindness, always ready to help in any way he could. He was the best big brother, happy to spend time with his four younger siblings who absolutely adored him.

Our sweet William was a treasured son, brother, grandson, uncle, nephew, cousin and friend. He will be remembered for his sweet nature and the mischievous sparkle in his eyes, and will be so deeply missed by all who knew him.

William was preceded in death by his father, Jason Price, Sr., brother Jason Price, Jr., cousins Steven and Stephanie Lewis, uncle Norman Lewis Jr., and maternal grandparents Sam and Kit Scott. He is survived by his parents, Sarah Scott and Alex Barner, siblings Devin, Roman, Jaycee, Crystal, Kaylee and Miles, paternal grandparents Walt Cosce, Sunny Cosce and Catherine Bourdase, as well as numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and extended family.

A memorial service for William will be held at Mattz Gymnasium in Hoopa at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, August 23, 2023. He will live in our hearts forever.
