Obituary: Ronald P. Price

Ronald P. Price, of Grand Lake, Colo., formerly of Mangum, Okla., passed away suddenly at his home on Sept. 28, 2015, at the age of 77 years.

Ron was born Oct. 1, 1937, to John Wesley Price and Wanda Joy (Phillips) Price. He served in the military and was stationed in Germany where he met and married Ilse Muench, who preceded him in death on Oct. 17, 2011.

A self-made businessman and a skilled craftsman in many fields, Ron was also a lover of the outdoors and enjoyed hunting quail in Greer County and fishing in Colorado and Oklahoma. He will be sorely missed by his daughters, Nancy Naves and Karen Anderson; his sisters, Linda Fletcher and Joyce Brown; his brother, John Price; and his grandchildren, Nicholas Rowles and Michael Anderson. Nick and Michael will especially miss the stories and guidance which he always offered.

Ron chose cremation and a private family memorial service. No flowers, please, but contributions may be made to the American Brittany Rescue.
