John “Jack” Price, 79, of Canton, Georgia, formally of Rockford, Illinois, passed away January 30, 2016 from Waldenstrom Macroglobulinemia Cancer surrounded by his family. Jack was born on September 28, 1936 to Lewis and Vera Layng Price in Rockford, Illinois. He grew up on the west side of Rockford, attending Lincoln Park School, graduating from West Rockford High School in 1954, where he played football and baseball.
Jack joined the Marine Corp in 1954, doing his basic training in San Diego, CA at Camp Pendleton, CA and was discharged from Twenty-Nine Palms, CA in 1958.

He then went to work for National Lock in customer service after college, and then started a career in 1968 with Ideal Industries, Inc in Sycamore, IL, working in sales. In 1974, the family moved to Woodstock, GA where Jack was named Southeastern Regional Sales Manager in 1982. He retired from Ideal Industries in 1999, after 31 years. He worked for Tip Top Poultry part time after retirement, traveling across the country doing food shows. He also loved being an Ambassador at the Bradshaw Farms Golf Course.
Jack had a love for people that followed him through his life and he never met a stranger. He could tell a joke at the drop of a hat. Jack loved his God and treasured his friendships.

January Minutes

Posted by Cherokee Senior Softball Association at Jan 17, 2016 5:43AM PST

CSSA Board of Directors MeetingJanuary 11, 2016Present: Dewey Hom, Commissioner; Warren Butler, Vice Commissioner; Glenn Peacock, Secretary; Ken Taylor, Treasurer; Peter Fowler, National League Director; Mike Parson, American League Director; Ron O’Donnell, Master League Director; Ray DeLuca, Senior League Director; Jerry Bohacek, Legends League Director; Bruce Stokes, Lowell Lawson League Director; Scott Parrish, Player RepresentativeAbsent: Randy Bergman, Legacy League Director

Dewey Hom called the meeting to order at 7:00 pm.

Commissioner Dewey Hom began the meeting with addressing the decision that was made in a special meeting held 12-30-15 with a vote of 8-1-2 abstentions, to eliminate senior bats and have the National League use bats approved by the ASA. This decision was precipitated by the concern for walkers outside of the ballpark and players safety. CSSA was formed to provide men, 50 and older, a place to play recreational softball. The Board of Directors is following CSSA’s original intent, charter and guidelines. We believe there is a place for Senior tournament play, it’s simply not at CSSA.

The National League director and managers expressed there displeasure with this decision and stated they will be looking at the possibility of leaving the CSSA so that they can continue using senior bats. Various board members expressed a desire to come to some kind of agreement so that the players in the National League can continue playing in the CSSA. This portion of the Board meeting ended with no definite resolution from the National League Director and managers.

The general Board meeting continued. Pete Fowler, National League Director excused himself from the meeting.

Secretary Minutes: Read and discussed, voted on unanimously to accept as presented.

Treasurers Report: Beginning balance $7260.99. Ending balance $5391.82The budget was discussed and voted on unanimously to accept as presented.
