David Price Memorial

October 12, 2018 at 4:20 pm the world lost an amazing soul. Anybody and everybody who knew David Price knows he was such a happy positive person. He was an important figure in everything he did and such a mentor for all young and old.  If you grew up in the Rouge you would often see him in the neighborhood, bigger than life talking to everyone. He would always take the time out of his day to just say hello, and make you feel special. David Price would always selflessly put his needs behind the needs of others. He enjoyed his time on and off the courts, touching each life he came into contact with. David took great pride in his community, and Lord Roberts Community Centre was another home, where he volunteered his time to mentor the new generation. Among other places, David was a long time referee with the Manitoba Basketball Association, volunteered at Rainbow Stage, volunteered at The Meeting Place, Goldeyes, just to name a few. He was a member of the KPAC, Winnipeg 1 and MBOA officials associations and worked games from the youth community level up to the MCAC College level and everything in between. He volunteered his time as a coach at a variety of levels and as an official with the Balling for the Cure Basketball Tournament and Special Olympics Manitoba among others. Our family has decided to start this fundraiser, so that his honor may live on in the community he loved so dear. We would like all the funds to be donated to Lord Roberts Community Centre in David Price’s name. Hopefully even naming the gym after him.  Fort Rouge, Winnipeg, New York and the world will always remember David Price and he will be missed by all.
