Wages and Sons is excited to announce the addition of R. Tony Price to our team. Price is coming aboard as the Director of Post Care Services, bringing with him over 25 years of funeral care experience. In his new position, he’ll have the opportunity to continue to support families served by Wages and Sons following the funeral, helping them navigate the business side of loss.
A longtime Georgia resident, Tony Price studied business at Clayton State College before beginning his funeral career at Winkenhofer Pine Ridge Funeral Home in Kennesaw in 1991. He is certified by the National Funeral Directors Association as a Pre-Need Consultant (CPC), as well as being a licensed Life Insurance Agent with the state of Georgia. An expert in business matters, he conducts seminars with veterans, to help them receive benefits to which they’re entitled, as well as leading workshops for social workers and Certified Nursing Assistants.
Price is an honorary member of the Gwinnett County Veterans Museum and Quilts of Valor committees, and a past president and board member of the Monroe Rotary Club, District 6910. He served two terms as a board member for the Walton County Chamber of Commerce and is an executive member of the Walton County Veterans Memorial, a non-profit created to honor the veterans of Walton County. He’s also the vice chair of the City of Braselton’s Planning and Zoning Commission, serving the 3rd District.
Making his home in Braselton Georgia, Price lives with his wife Missi and their two children, Sophie and Tyler. They attend 12Stone Church at the Flowery Branch Campus. In addition, Tony Price volunteers with the American Legion Riders Post 233 Ride for America, Operation Toy Soldier, Backpacks for Vets, the National Police Officers Memorial Day Ceremonies with Gwinnett County Police, and the Reality Check Program at Walton County Schools.
We are thrilled to welcome such an involved member of the community, and someone so well-qualified to help the families we serve. We know Mr. Price is a valuable addition to our team, and we look forward to working with him for many years to come.
