  1. I spent many days and weekends with Bob and his wife Katie (a real handful!) growing up in Calgary as “best friends” of their youngest daughter Jane. I have many wonderful memories of the Price family, which were like my own family, only better. Bob and Katie were particularly generous, always made me feel welcome, and were always open and warm.

    I’ve seen Bob stand up for people who he believed were vulnerable, and take issue. Katie was the same. It was their principled view that I will remember most about them.

    My thoughts especially to Jane.

  3. Our deepest sympath on the loss of a “true gentleman” and true friend and great parent. It was my pleasure to have had lunch with Bob a few months ago for which I’m truly grateful. May the good Lord look after Bob and Kathy and grant them peace. All of the family are in our prayers in this your time of need.

  4. Very belated condolences. I believe Bob Price may have been my godfather. My great uncles were Harvey, Percy, and Will Price. I believe Harvey had a son named Bob who would have been my father, Jack’s, first cousin. My grandfather, Grenville Carson Price, married Laura Graham. These two generations of the Prices in Ontario are now dead of course. In my generation my brother, John, and sister, Anne both live in the Ottawa area as do I. I have two sons, one of which is in Calgary. Please excuse this lengthy discourse if I have the wrong Bob Price.
