Emick “Mick” was called by Our Dear Lord on September 3, 2021, where he joins his loving parents and his devoted wife, each of whom preceded him. Emick’s quick and easy smile, his cheerfulness as cookout chef at family gatherings, and his outgoing personality are already missed.Emick, attended Trinity Catholic Elementary School in St. Martinville, where he was a member of the basketball team, served as vice-president of the school’s 4-H boy’s club, and graduated in 1973.

Following graduation from St. Martinville Senior High in 1977, he spent a brief stint at Martin Mills before learning his future trade as a sheet metal welder. As a journeyman welder, he joined UNIFAB [now Dynamic Industries, Inc.] at the Port of Iberia, where his skills and expertise earned him a supervisory position over one of the company’s steel fabrication teams. Emick was an avid motorcyclist, and was often seen roaming the backroads of St. Martin and Iberia parishes. Emick is survived by his son, Emick J. Price, Jr., (Shadell) of Loreauville; daughter, Kayla Shaniqua (Stephen) of Atlanta, GA; and four grandchildren, Ean, Eli, Erron and Dillon.
