Kermit F. Price

Kermit F. Price, 89, of Sandusky passed away peacefully on Thursday, November 2, 2017 at Ohio Living, Swan Creek, Toledo, Ohio following a lengthy illness.

He was born August 1, 1928 in Blue Rock, Ohio and lived most of his life in Sandusky.

Kermit was a 1947 graduate of Sandusky High School and served in the U.S. Army as a First Lieutenant during the Korean Conflict.

He was an inveterate entrepreneur and owned and operated many businesses throughout his lifetime, starting his first business, "Kerm's Used Cars" at age 16. He was self-employed as a real estate broker and owned local businesses: The Note, The Sandusky Hotel Corporation, Sandusky Nursing Home and The Pony Tail.

Kermit's life was guided by his "servant heart," loving everyone, encouraging them to do their best, and putting their needs ahead of his own. His life was a living example of his favorite Bible verse, Philippians 4:13- "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."
He was a member of the "Old" First Presbyterian Church, Sandusky, member and Past Master of Perseverance Lodge No. 329, F. & A.M., a member and past officer of Sandusky City Chapter No. 72, R.A.M., Sandusky City Council No. 26, R. & S.M., & Erie Commandery No. 23, K.T., and a 32nd Degree Mason, Scottish Rite, Valley of Toledo, The Gideons International, and the Christian Business Men's Connection (CBMC).

Kermit was an avid pilot, enjoyed horseracing, but most importantly he loved his family.

He is survived by his wife of 47 years, Catharine W. (Weis) Price; five children, Emmy (Dr. Jeffrey) Dobyns of Hoover, Alabama, Wendy (Marlon) Kiser of Waterville, Ohio, Sharon (Raymond) Holmes of Aurora, Colorado, Deborah (Haile) Price of Mesa, Arizona, and Matthew (Pamela) Kaman of Bremerton, Washington, one granddaughter at home, Catharine Sostre, Sandusky Ohio, one niece, Kimberely June, Mesa, Arizona; nine grandchildren, Chaz Price, Raymond Holmes, Hannah Girmai, Samantha Holmes, Matthew Kaman, and Danielle Kaman, Nicholas Dobyns, Evan Dobyns, Alexander Dobyns, and five great grandchildren and other nieces, nephews and friends.

He was preceded in death by one son, Victor Kaman; his parents, Floyd and Goldie (Trout) Price; and one sister, Phyllis June.
