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.

I will remember Bob Price as a classmate from elementary school through high school in ElDorado, Arkansas. He was smart, well-liked, confident, and a leader in every respect. His last official act of leadership for his alma mater was to serve as Master of Ceremonies of our 50th class reunion in 2008. Wearing a purple tuxedo styled T-shirt, he did a fantastic job using his never ending wit and charm. He left an indelible imprint on the hearts of his classmates and friends. He will be greatly missed. My heart felt condolences to his family.

Dad was always great to call for advise. He was so knowledgeable. I remember as a kid doing homework took patience because his explanations were so long. Recently I asked about his protein drinks. He explained how the stomach and intestine worked while using terms I was familiar with but knew better than to ask. I thought at the time as I had many times before this is a "dad answer" . I really grew to appreciate it because he taught me so much. Thanks to Vicki and Rob for this site. I look forward to reading and contributing.

Bob will be greatly missed by family and friends.

Memories:

Classmate from the first grade all the way to Hendrix College before he left for New Mexico.

Cub Scouts through Explorers.

Playing kick the can in the Euclid and 4th neighborhood.

Smart.

Wiring a electrical cord connected to a wire screen covered with bird seed to scare birds. Didn't work.

Trying to get a friend who had a big car to get a date so we could triple date. Turned out that just because one's family had a big car didn't mean they could get a date.

Smart.

He and his dad making a Christmas tree out of a bare sweet gum tree sprayed white.

Some how getting together in Southern CA when I was in the Navy and he was attending a conference.

Reconnecting at the 50th reunion.

God Bless Bob.

My Grandpa was one of a kind and someone I will always look up to. I’ll never forget the summers when my Cousin and I went to visit him in Virginia. They are some of my fondest memories that I will cherish forever. Grandpa always had a daily article or lesson for us and while a discussion on U.S. currency wasn’t exactly what two teenage girls wanted to engage in while on vacation, I admire the amount of knowledge my Grandpa had and I appreciate him wanting to share it. On one of our last adventures with him, Grandpa took us to the NRA shooting range, where I shot my first gun. I feel so lucky to have spent those summers with him. I will miss him greatly.

Bob was the father of my best friend Vicki, his daughter. I remember visiting Vicki's home on many occasions and Mr. Price always had a great sense of humor and made you feel welcomed. He was one of the first people to have a computer at home, and we all thought that was really cool. I believe he also had one of the first video games too, which was Pong. He always had some interesting thoughts on life which made us a think about things in a different way. I remember a fun trip to West, Texas with the family and celebrating Octoberfest and I also remember him taking the kids to a University of Arkansas Football game where he could really do the SoooWIIIEEEPIGGGYY! yell very well! He taught Vicki and I how to grill a huge stuffed hamburger on the grill, and ate it with a smile on his face even though it was not that great! To Rob and Vicki, Robert and Brian - I know this is a great loss for each of you and please know I am keeping you all in my prayers and thoughts during this difficult time. Hugs and much love, Joy

Bob was a classmate of mine from junior high, and high school days. He will be remembered by all his classmates for his wonderful sense of humor, his “frank” dialog, and for being “one great guy”. Rest in peace my sweet friend.

Bob was a high school classmate of mine and we became friends again while planning our BIG 50 class reunion. He worked so hard to plan our program to help us remember the good times we had as kids. Vickie, to you and the family, we extend our heartfelt condolences on the loss of your dad. His wit and sense of humor will be sorely missed by all who knew him.

Bob Price was a great man and a really good father-in-law to me. He had such a great sense of humor, keen wit. Bob was one of the most personable and friendly guys I ever knew. He had no problem striking up a conversation and making friends with people - He had a very down-to-earth way about him that instantly turned strangers into friends. My father-in-law was the opposite of, 'shy'. He wasn't the least bit self-conscious or worried about impressing anyone or putting on airs. He was himself at all times and if you knew him, that was a very good thing. I've got so many great and funny memories about the times we spent together. He was also a very generous and kind to my family and took a real interest in what everyone was doing. He will be dearly missed.

"He and my mother Annie Jean Johnson Hedgecock loved to tease each other. I remember when he and his wife visited us in Houston. He carried me on his shoulders through the Houston Zoo. I wet my pants. Yew!"

"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."
