David Lynn Price born on May 18, 1965, passed away on Wednesday November 3, 2021. He leaves his wife, Misti Price; children, Emily Denise of Austin, and Marshal Alan Walker of Gordonville; mother, Judy Price of Bonham; nephew, Garrett Pender of Sherman, and sister and brother-in-law Scott & Robin Lowry of Sherman.
David was born in Arlington to Michael and Judy Price. In his youth he did BMX racing. He enjoyed playing baseball, and fishing. He only enjoyed fishing if his sister wasn’t trying to catch his ear. He graduated from Gold-burg High School in 1983.
David worked in construction for over 25 years. He started as a grade checker with Granite Construction in 1994 when he moved to Altus Oklahoma, where he met and married Misti Moore of Altus, a year later. With Granite they then moved to Jasper, Texas and San Angelo, Texas for both dam and spillway projects. During this time, they blessed with two children Emily Denise and Marshal Allen-Walker Price. In 1999, David decided “The Gypsie” lifestyle of moving every couple of years was not good for his kids and settled down in Collinsville, Texas. He worked for several local companies through that time including, Raney Surveying in Collinsville, Rodman Construction, and Archer Western Construction. During those years David taught himself AutoCAD and how to build models for Machine Control Grading that he thought was the future of Construction Survey (he was RIGHT)! After the kids had graduated David took a job with Kiewit and Sons Construction that took him several areas but two jobs that held a special place in his heart were The Border West Expressway in El Paso, Texas and the C-70 Project in Denver, Colorado where he worked with and created lifelong friendships with “HIS Survey Crew”. After moving back to North Texas, David went to work for Mario Sinacola and Sons, and though he was not there long, he was happy working with lots of “old construction” friends.
David had one dream; it was to own a home in Rock Creek Resort on Lake Texoma where he used to take his family swimming. Before the house was built, his kids called it “The Stuckin Lake”(because he would get stuck every weekend.) David accomplished his goal on July 29, 2021. He was so happy to be able to play golf whenever he wanted!
He is preceded in death by his father, “Pop” Michael Price; grandparents, Calhoun and Effie Bowman and David and Beth (Walker) Price.
