Goodbye, Swampy

Thomas E. Price, Jr. 48 of Goodlettsville, TN, died Friday May 5 at St. Thomas Hospital in Nashville. Mr. Price, formerly of Memphis where he graduated from Oakhaven High School, attended Memphis State and worked 24 years for Fed Ex before moving to Goodlettsville where he enjoyed his hobby of raising Wolf dogs. He also worked for Pro Drivers in Nashville. He was the beloved husband and “Hero” of Brenda S. Price. He also leaves his mother Dorothy L. Price of Memphis and a dear friend Colleen Jones.

Tom was known by Predators fans as "Swamprat" or "Swampy" and was known for the red light on his helmet. During my many trips to Nashville, Tom and Brenda were always one of the highlights of my visits. I'll miss you, my old friend.
