The world has lost a gentleman with a golden heart. Bruce J. Price, age 59, of Kennett Square, passed away September 5, 2021, at Seasons Hospice in Wilmington, DE. He was the husband of Douglas Yago.
Bruce was a long-time resident of Mendenhall before moving recently to Kennett Square.
He was always interested in expanding his knowledge. He attended both Messiah University and Hahnemann University. He was a voracious reader.
Confirmed in the Episcopal Church, he was active for many years, primarily focusing on the youth. In addition, he helped lead annual mission trips to the Dominican Republic. He served on the Altar Guild as well as various other activities.
Bruce will be known by many as a true gentleman, a kind soul, and a devout animal lover. There was always room for another animal in his home.
Bruce fought a tough fight with cancer, but his problems never got in the way of being interested in others. He had outstanding care from his team at Thomas Jefferson University and in his last days by Seasons Hospice.
His husband, Douglas Yago, will sorely miss him. Together for 21 years and married since 2014, they enjoyed traveling together and just spending any time together. They made an impact on the youth in Wilmington. They also were active in fundraising for the Wilmington community. Doug and Bruce truly were a team. His pets, Philippe, Beau, and Delilah will also miss his caring touch.
Burial will be private per Bruce’s wish. In place of flowers, please consider donating to the Brandywine Valley SPCA.
