Obituary

Our beloved B. Max Price, PhD, died in the early morning hours of Thursday, February 11, 2021, due to complications of cancer and Alzheimer’s disease. He was 83. Max is survived by his loving partner of 60 years, his wife Geri, his daughter Tracey Price Burton, his son Dr. Todd Logan Price, his bonus daughter Pamala Price, and his grandchildren Timothy, Jonathan, Elizabeth (Stephen), Matthew, Kirsten, Daniel and Ariela. He also leaves behind his beloved sister Pat Wright, whose friendship he treasured; his nephews and niece, Brooks Wright (Vera), Jaye May (Rob), Blaine Wright (Cheryl), and their families who he dearly loved, Jennifer and Logan May; Jessica, Jacob and Grayson Jean; and Jacquelyn and Loren Wright. Max was a unique soul who never lost his childlike sense of wonder, and who loved with his whole heart. He instilled in us the importance of taking responsibility for our actions and for looking out for those less fortunate. He was a fierce opponent of racial and social injustices and taught us to be respectful of others and to be generous of spirit.
Although Max and Geri travelled the world, his most favorite spot may have been Lake Tahoe, CA, where he spent as much time as possible exploring the beauty of this earth. During his lifetime, Max was a collegiate long-distance runner, an ordained minister, a clinical psychologist, a Sunday School teacher, a published author of five books and numerous peer-reviewed articles, a track coach, a mentor and friend. He taught Latin, was the pitcher on his HS baseball team, was an avid gardener and animal lover, and a thoughtful gift-giver. He was serious about his St. Louis Cardinals and Oklahoma football, and had planned to extend his season tickets this year.
Max was a graduate of Oklahoma Baptist University, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, and the University of Oklahoma.
The family would like to thank Max and Geri’s Spring Creek Baptist Church members and friends who have so lovingly cared for us over the past year. Without you, we would have been lost. We would also like to thank the healthcare professionals who have given extraordinary care to Max, including his oncologist Dr. Thomas Showalter II and Juli Johnson of Integris Cancer Institute; his doctor and friend Lawrence Deck III; Integris Home Health and Integris Hospice House nurses, aids, physical therapists and social workers who provided loving care to Max and his family during the last weeks of his life, and his sweet friend Richel.
Max was born in Cordell, Oklahoma on September 8, 1937 and was preceded in death by his parents, the Reverend William Elmer and Lois Price, who provided him a wonderful childhood, and who were so proud of his every accomplishment. Max is also survived by his four-legged buddy, his Beagle, Sparky, with whom he embarked on adventures too numerous to count.
As a life-long, long-distance runner, 2 Timothy 4:7 is a very appropriate verse for him: "I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith." (ESV)
A memorial service will be held at Spring Creek Baptist Church, Oklahoma City, OK, at a date yet to be determined.
