  Mike Price was a funny man. He was a man who would “step on barking spiders,” who “should have been a rock star,” who let kids think he was Santa Claus at Christmas time, a man who ate breakfast and watched Dr. Who on Sunday mornings, while sitting on his motorcycle, parked in the living room.

  Mike Price was a man who left an impression. He was a man who would flip you off in traffic, a man many would call fierce and imposing, a man who would make his opinion known, who would tell it like it is, and whose bad side you never dared to be on.

  Mike Price was a solid man. He was a man who could lift heavy objects, who worked hard every single day of his life, who did what needed done, no matter how impossible that thing was. He was due North. He carried the weight of the world on his shoulders and never once shrugged.

  Mike Price was a shelter. He was a man who secretly saved kittens, a man who brought children and adults alike into his home and cared for them, a man who harbored the sick, lonely, and desperate. A man who gave endlessly to any and everyone who needed him.

  Mike Price was a loving man. He loved everyone in his life, whether they deserved it or not. He found the good in people and held on to it. He was a generous man who would share his wallet, his home, his happiness, and his heart and would always be there to do it again and again, no doubt.

  Mike Price is family. Blood related or not, so many people lived in this man’s heart. He is “Uncle Mike” to far more people than he could ever be related, he is the best friend to anyone who knew him, he is a brother, a father to three girls, a grandfather, and a husband to a wife who adored him without reason or limit. He will always be our family.

  Mike attended Central High School from 1968-1971. He worked at Rowe’s Services until the time of his passing. He traveled all over the U.S., but called Sioux City his home.

  He was a Jack of all trades and a Renaissance Man, and he loved riding and working on his motorcycles. Mike was an audiophile, and loved listening to and collecting vinyl records. He was an avid practitioner of holistic medicine and enjoyed fishing, camping, and spending time with his family and many friends.

  Survivors include his daughter, Miranda Everett (Abner Mintz) and granddaughter, Raiven Everett, all of Laurel, MD; daughter, Melissa Price-Bennett (Philip) of Sioux Falls, SD; grandson, Jobe Price of Sioux City; daughter, Leah Price (David Kimbell) of Sioux City; nephew, Lukas Dondlinger (Gina) and their children: Aysah, Olivia, and Chloe; half-sister, Dee Dee Johnson; niece, Danielle Riley of Sioux City; sister-in-law and co-conspirator, LeAnn Price of Stratton, NE; and his best friend and loyal companion, Griff-Dog Price.

  He was preceded in death by his parents, Merle and Mary Alice Price; wife, Mary Price; brother, Bill Price; sister, Kathleen Price; friends: Big Don and Lisa, Hobo and Arlene, Big A, Bob “Papa Snoot” Newton, and many other beloved friends.

  Honorary pallbearers will be: Larry and Debbie Cole, TJ Neswick, Art Fritz, Bim Stewart, Cheryl and Bob “Hutch” Hutchinson, Ed Dowdy, Bob Newton, and Beanhead.
