Timothy Allan Price was born June 22, 1967 raised in a loving home filled with warmth and faith. From an early age, he embodied the values of kindness, empathy, and selflessness that would guide him
throughout his remarkable life. He was a proud “Red Devil’, graduating from Marion-Franklin high school in 1985 as well as the Eastland Career Center for electrical engineering, collecting the most amazing
lifetime friends. Tim was known for his jokes and laughter but even more so for his impeccable work ethic. The epitome of consistency, hard work and dedication.

He was a shining example of a true servant of God. He was ordained by Pastor Melvin D. Willis served as a deacon under his leadership at Southfield Missionary Baptist Church and would later transition to
serve his cherished friend and leader, Bishop Kenneth E. Moore at New Birth Christian Ministries for countless years. As a deacon, Tim tirelessly dedicated himself to the spiritual well-being of the
congregation. He provided unwavering support to his fellow church members, visiting the sick and shut in, serving the elderly communion and providing a listening ear to those in need. His profound faith and
gentle nature were a source of solace and inspiration to all who sought his counsel.

Outside the church walls, Tim was an exceptional husband and father. For 31 years, he lovingly stood by his devoted wife Stephanie, sharing a bond that was built on mutual respect, unwavering love, and
unwavering commitment. Their love was an enduring testament to the power of true partnership and unwavering devotion. As a father, Tim poured his heart into nurturing and guiding his two daughters,
Taylor and Sierra. He was their rock, their love, and their biggest supporter. Both girls could always count on their dad, from finding the best places to eat to fixing their cars. His wisdom, gentle guidance,
and unwavering encouragement shaped them into the remarkable individuals they have become, and his love will continue to guide them throughout their lives.

In his role as a grandfather, Tim experienced immeasurable joy and pride. His three grandchildren, Harmony, Eden, and Josiah brought boundless happiness to his life. He cherished every moment spent with them, creating cherished memories and imparting upon them the values that he held dear. He was a devoted son, caring for his beautiful mother in every way, a playful uncle, and loving baby brother to 5 amazing siblings.

It must be mentioned that Tim was a huge University of Michigan fan! He loved watching the football games with his son in law, Josiah, his sister Debbie, and his dear friend, DeRell. Always wearing their
maize and blue in a sea of Buckeye fans. Tim was also a huge foodie! He could always tell you the best place to go for any type of food and give you a review for any of the new restaurants in town. He loved
playing basketball and enjoyed being a man of style.

Tim' memory lives on in the hearts of his mother Lula Price and four siblings Renee [Robert Lamar (deceased)], Deborah Austin (David Austin), Tamala Thomas (Frank Thomas) and Steven Price; devoted
wife Stephanie Price; loving daughters Taylor Dunlap (Josiah Dunlap), and Sierra Price; three beautiful grandchildren Harmony Dunlap, Eden Dunlap, and Josiah Dunlap; and a host of nieces, nephews,
relatives, and friends. His presence in their lives will be deeply missed, but his love and influence will continue to shape their lives for generations to come.

Tim is preceded in death by his father James O. Price and beloved brother Larry Price (Valerie Price). As we gather to celebrate Tim’s life, let us remember the remarkable man he was. Let us honor his
legacy by carrying forward his teachings of love, hard work, and unwavering faith. Though our hearts are heavy with grief, let us find solace in the knowledge that Tim now rests in the loving embrace of our
Heavenly Father.

    I’ve known Tim for 14 years. He was my coworker but more importantly he was my friend. I always felt that our relationship was genuine and easy and we trusted each other,thats rare. Our families were from the same place in Southfield,we had the same interests and humor and had some of the best conversations about life. He had the same birthday as my Father who I lost early in life. He felt more like family and I’m gonna miss him everyday. He always called me little bro so Godspeed BIG BRO I love you
