Dr. King G. Price died of congestive heart failure on Friday, July 7th. A pioneer resident of the San Francisco Towers, his life was wonderfully filled with those who shared his zest for life. He highly valued interesting travel, delicious food and drink, and stories of love and friendship. A brilliant man with a generous spirit and heart, he was a loving son, brother, uncle, and loyal friend. Kings interest in opera, ballet, symphony, theatre, and classic and modern cinema was happily shared with all.
Born in Norman, Oklahoma, he graduated from the University of Oklahoma Medical School in 1957 and went to New York and Boston to continue his internship and residency in Psychiatry. His service with the U.S. Navy in 1967 brought him to the California Bay Area. He knew he would return to San Francisco one day. After a tour in Viet Nam and completion of his Naval commitment, he returned to Oklahoma for two years. 1971 brought Dr. Price back to the California Bay Area and to work for Alameda County for the next twenty-five years. Many wonderful years and friends were his. Sadly in 1994 a devastating stroke dampened his remaining active years. Blessed with a never complain attitude and an active community at the San Francisco Towers, King never stopped living well. He is survived by many special friends and loyal family members.
A special thanks to San Francisco Towers staff for helping King to have a wonderful life. Family services will be held and his ashes will be interred at the Columbarium, Grace Cathedral, San Francisco. Memorial contributions can be made to a hospice or public TV/radio station in your area.
