Memorial
This site is dedicated to the memory of Bob Price.
Robert Steele Price (Bob) was born in Little Rock, Arkansas. He moved to New Mexico to attend college, married Pat Price and they had three children. Their family moved to Greenville, Texas in 1969 where Bob was employed by E-systems. In 1986, Bob moved to McClean, VA where he married Barbara. He enjoyed traveling with his wife Barbara and spending time with their dog, Max. One of his favorite places to visit was St. Maarten, every morning he would say, “Another day in paradise!” In the last few years he worked several positions at Wolf Trap, entertaining guests with his witty personality. He also put his smarts to work by tutoring high school and college students and preparing them for important exams. He had an insatiable appetite for knowledge and a desire to learn more about his world and universe.

He is survived by his wife Barbara and his three children, Vicki, Robert, and Brian. He is also survived by his mother Nora, son-in-law Rob and his grandchildren, Valerie and Chris. Other surviving loved ones include Step-daughter Sharon, her husband Michael and their children (Bob's other Grandchildren), Alexis and Alexander. Other loved ones include numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.

Dad used to inspire us with music. I remember sitting in the den listening to classical music. When we listed to the 1812 Overture, dad would turn out the lights and we'd imagine and create what might be happening, scenes and pictures that the music painted. THEN, when it was time for the cannons, dad would turn up the volume! Wow! So exciting and inspiring!

I always remember things about Bobby when he was young and the rest of us were younger. We (the other cousins and I) couldn't wait for he and Nora to come for a visit. He loved to pick on us and scare us. One time he was after all of us and we hid in the play house at Becky's. Of course he found us, even though we thought we were being so quite and so well hidden. He beat on the side of the house and threw open the door and we all screamed and ran for "our lives". He was always up to something. We were so impressed when he was at White Sands and just always intrigued by his knowledge on so many subjects. He will be greatly missed, but thanks for the memories.

Vicki told me this story about her Dad a few years ago that I really makes me miss and appreciate him so much. She was talking to her Dad one day on the phone and he mentioned this little episode he had with a boy on the block and a toy that belonged to Max. The kid must have thought the toy was pretty neat... and he took it. Bob spied him a day or two later and called him over. He said, "Hey, you know,if Max's toy finds it's way back into my mailbox by tomorrow, the way I look at it - the cops don't even have to know about it..."...

And the next day, there the toy was - right back where it belonged. And the day after that, the kid knocked on Bob's door and asked him if he could take the toy out and play with Max. Bob had a way of taking uncomfortable situations and making them feel comfortable, right and funny - and he and Max had a new friend. I could just imagine Bob's Arkansas drawl while Vicki related this to me. I told her that her Dad had a very clever humor and wit about him - and a way of talking that reminded me of Andy Griffith.

I was 30 years old when I got my first cell phone. Dad talked me into getting one. He then advised that I keep it turned on 24/7. It's good security and great communication. He always had his with him, except for shower time. I thought that was good advise. Cell phones are great when you live in different states! We could stay in touch and call each other to share little things. He often called to share something he found interesting from the news and often would give me the answer and I'd have to figure out the question. I'll miss dad's phone calls.

I first got to know Bob when we were 5 years old at Ms. Lee's kindergarden. I don't remember much about kindergarden, but I do remember Bob falling out of a tree and breaking his arm. Throughout school we were always friends, but our Sr. year in High School we spent a very lot of time together because we were both deeply involved in Student Council . Over the 50+ years since that time, we have stayed in touch only at class reunions and with an occaisional phone call just to chat a bit. These last few months of his illness,we have talked much more often. Bob was always funny, smart, kind, thoughtful, loyal and fun to be with, and considerate. I never knew Bob not to take " the high road" what ever was happening. I know for a fact that he adored his wife Barbara, his children, his grandchildren and his Mother. I feel very blessed to have had his friendship all these years.

"A tree was planted November 2nd at the Boerne, Tx. Library. It is in a new area for kids with a long stone bench where kids will sit and read. Dad loved books and nature."

"I miss that wise old man. I am so thankful to have been able to take care of dad. His journey to his last days and hours was quite a challenge. Dad never quit and continued to be witty and intelligent. I miss getting an answer to anything asked."
