Richard Albert Price, 67, of Lake Arrowhead, died on August 25, 2021, in Oklahoma City. At the time, he was traveling from California to Michigan to attend the funeral service and burial of his father, which was held on August 26. Mr. Price was born in Detroit on November 26, 1953, the first child of Maree (Dally) Przybylski and Richard Albert Przybylski, an automotive body designer. In Michigan he learned to renovate cars and motorcycles, and also became a skilled woodworker and a talented guitar player. He moved to California in 1982, and lived in the Los Angeles/Orange County area for over 30 years. He designed custom van interiors before opening a cabinet-making shop in Irvine. He worked at rental properties in the Newport Beach area, and also learned how to renovate boats; sailing was one of his favorite activities. He was a Commodore and Esteemed Life Member of the Newport Harbor Yacht Club. He also graduated from Saddleback Community College with an Associate of Science degree, with an emphasis in historical geology; and he held a California real estate license. He moved to Lake Arrowhead in 2014. Mr. Price was also an Extended Leading Knight for Newport Harbor Elks Lodge No. 1757, and after moving to Lake Arrowhead, he joined Elks Lodge No. 2392 in Rimforest. He was also very interested in genealogy, and through his own research, he confirmed that his mother’s paternal side of the family were descendants of Simon Sackett, a well-known English Puritan (Pilgrim) settler who arrived in the Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1631, and was one of the first inhabitants of present-day Cambridge, Massachusetts. Mr. Price also became a member of the Sons of the American Revolution, from the Sackett family tree. He is survived by two brothers, Martin Price and Terrance Przybylski; a sister, Jill West; three nephews--Zachary and Jared Price, and Morgan West; and many cousins and friends.
