Mark Patrick Price June 10, 1955 – March 23, 2015
Capt. Mark Price, of M/Y Sovereign, died March 23 at his apartment in Ft. Lauderdale. He had worked as captain onboard the 89-foot Burger yacht for more than 20 years. He was 59.
Terry Gallocher, of Interrygal Engineering in Ft. Lauderdale, did service work for Capt. Price’s boat for nearly 20 years and said the captain kept a very well maintained boat.
“He was a very likable guy,” Gallocher said. “And he had one of the nicest old boats you’ll see.”
Chrissy Beck, of Lauderdale Diver in Ft. Lauderdale, met Capt. Price in 1988 when she first started working on yachts.
“Mark taught me so much. He was dedicated to his career and owners and was a great captain,” Beck said. “He made made friends everywhere he went.”
“Mark was a devoted father to his two sons, whom he just adored,” Beck said. “It is so sad to lose a long time friend who truly was a caring, kind and very professional.”
“I will miss seeing his face with that big smile,” Beck said.
Capt. Price was divorced and leaves two children in the Bahamas. There are plans for a memorial on June 10 in Ft. Lauderdale.
