Obituary

Richard Bullock Price, 64, passed away on Monday, February 4, 2019 in San Antonio, Texas. He was born in New Orleans, Louisiana to his parents, Homer Price (preceded in death) and Evelyn Ruth Price (surviving). Richard grew up as an active member of Northwood Presbyterian Church in San Antonio. He attended school at Woodridge Elementary, Alamo Heights Junior High School, and Alamo Heights High School, graduating in 1973.

Richard received a Bachelor of Business Administration from The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) and a Master of Arts in Urban Affairs from The University of Texas at Arlington (UTA). After graduating from UTSA he worked as Budget Analyst for the UT Health Science Center at Dallas. Later he served as Auditor for the US Army Audit Agency and Budget Analyst for the US Air Force School of Aerospace Medicine.

From 1984 – 1996 Richard worked as Assistant to the City Manager for the City of Irving where he filled many roles. (Richard was known as the 'fix-it guy' at the City.) His last role was serving as Information Services Director. Richard eventually left the City of Irving to become Senior Manager at Arthur Andersen, LLP leading the Southwest Region Business Consulting Government Services Technology practice.

In January of 2000, Richard founded Government Resource Associates, LLC. From 2003 – 2006, he served as Director of Research and Information Services for North Central Texas Council of Governments. Richard also worked as a consultant for Solbourne Computer, Inc. and founded IT Performance, Inc. He spent his semi-retirement years as a stock market trader and author.

Richard was associated with many industry affiliations including speaking engagements for Government Finance Officers Association of Texas (GFOAT), Urban Management Assistants of North Texas (UMANT), URISA, and published articles for American City and County and Public Management (ICMA).

In his spare time, Richard enjoyed music, movies, and sports. He was a Life Member of the UTSA Alumni Association. As a season ticket holder, he attended UTSA football games – and kept statistics for his Twitter followers. He enjoyed tailgating before football games and attending UTSA baseball and basketball games. Once Richard retired, he longed to exercise his creativity and spontaneity. He executed extensive research into writing, psychological and emotional character traits, police investigations and interrogations, and more in order to write a mystery/suspense novel. Richard also loved taking weekend trips with his travel trailer.

Richard is survived by his loving wife of 30 years, Heidi Leigh Price; daughters, Christine Marie Atwell (husband, Jeff), Heather Anne Moore (husband, Brian), Amber Elizabeth Barnes (husband, Brent); brothers, Robert Price and David Price; grandchildren, Lauren, Garrett, Morgan and Blake Atwell; Matthew and Megan Moore; Gideon, Jonah and Eli Teer.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Summer Band Institute Gift Fund at The University of Texas at San Antonio or The START Center for Cancer Care. Information for each is listed below.

*Last summer, Richard and Heidi offered to share their home with four of their grandchildren while they attended the UTSA Summer Band Institute. As the camp dates drew closer, they realized Richard would be too sick to accommodate the children and shuttle them each day. When they explained the situation to the Band Institute in order to cancel, the Institute offered to house all four children in their dormitories at no additional cost. It made a lasting impression on the entire family. They hope this memorial will convey their heartfelt appreciation.

Gifts may be mailed In Memory of Richard B. Price to: UTSA Development Office, 1 UTSA Circle, San Antonio TX 78249. Gifts may also be made online at https://giving.utsa.edu/makeagift by selecting the College of Liberal and Fine Arts in the drop down box and indicating that the gift is In Memory of Richard B. Price. You may also call Naomy Ybarra in the Department of Music Office at 210-458-4354 or naomy.ybarra@utsa.edu.

*The START Center for Cancer Care delivered Richard's treatment throughout his cancer battle. The compassion from the doctors and nurses was evident at each visit. They took Richard's concerns and questions seriously and made him feel like more than a patient. The connections he made each week at the START Center provided a sense of community, hope and dignity during his most challenging days.
