Frank Edward Price, faithful Christian, devoted husband, loving father, granddad and great-granddad, gained his heavenly reward on September 1, 2017.
Frank was a man of passion and love. He adored and treasured his wife, Dorothy Russell Price, throughout their 69 years of marriage. Frank loved all of his four children and their chosen spouses: Wade Price and Sarah of Houston, TX, Wanda Price Childress and Richard of Austin, TX, Cecil Price and Nicky of Hereford, AZ, and Carey Price and Mary of Huntsville, TX. His 13 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren were sources of great joy to him. He is also survived by three precious siblings, Ted Price, Lloyd Price, and Jane Marsh, as well as many nephews, nieces, and dear friends.
Frank Price was born on October 26, 1926 in Corsicana, Texas. He grew up on a farm in the community of Huntington, Texas. Frank joined the U.S. Navy and served as a radio operator aboard ships during World War II and the Korean War. He earned a Bachelor of Science, and a Master in Education degrees, and taught biology for 35 years. He retired from University of Houston Downtown in 1988, and moved to Huntsville, TX in 1992.
Frank always showed the heart of a servant as a member of the church of Christ by leading singing, teaching Bible classes, serving as an elder of three different congregations. Frank and Dorothy truly lived Hebrews 13:2 as they showed hospitality to church members and visitors alike. He also supported and taught at the Foundation School of Church Music, training song leaders in central Texas. In 1977, Frank began working with Baxter Institute of Biblical and Cultural Studies, training preachers in the church, teaching occasional classes and serving on the Board of Directors for many years.
One of Franks greatest joys was singing. His love of singing influenced his entire family, who often gathered to sing together. Franks legacy of loving God, family, and music will continue to be a source of joy and comfort for those who knew him best. Romans 8:28
In lieu of flowers, you may honor Frank with memorial gifts to The Baxter Institute (in care of the Huntsville church of Christ) or the Foundation School of Church Music (contact Wade Price).
