Obituary of Robert Emert Price
Robert (Bob) Emert Price of Pottstown, born July 5, 1947, passed away on September 13, 2022. He was a loving husband, father, Pop-Pop, Uncle, brother and a proud Navy Veteran. Bob was the son of Alice Louise Price (Hacker) and Elbert Price, and the wife of Beverly Price (Lytle) who preceded him in death.
Bob is survived by his two daughters, Susan Maggetti and her husband Tom Maggetti, and Angela Harrison and her husband Jeffrey Harrison. He is also survived by his twin brother Bill Price, his three grandsons, sister-in-law, nieces, nephews, cousins, grand-dogs & cats, as well as other extended family members who knew and loved him.
Bob was a proud Vietnam Navy Veteran and remained active in helping within the local Veteran community. He was a former nuclear engineer before he and his wife Bev fulfilled a dream of opening their own business, Apple Basket Gifts. Bob, known as Pop-Pop to his 3 grandsons, loved watching them play sports, helping often to keep the score. Bob also had a love of computers, even building a few for his grandsons. He enjoyed spending time with his family, laughing over good food and wine, all while making new memories.
Knowing that he is now at peace and back with his high school sweetheart, Beverly Price, brings comfort to those closest as we know they are both watching over all of us.
