Ron Price

April 30, 1939 - January 9, 1998

Ronald Fullerton Price was born in Chicago, Illinois on April 30, 1939. He was of Old- World English Virginia ancestry and German immigrant heritage. Not long after Ron's birth, our parents left Chicago, moved south and eventually settled in Belleville, Illinois, a small town across the Mississippi River from St. Louis, just east of East St. Louis. ... In February of 1993, Ron was accepted into the Graphic Arts Workshop in San Francisco. His spirits soared with this turn of events in his life. He created numerous works of art during the following years and formed deep and abiding friendships with his colleagues at the Workshop. The following is a February, 1993 entry in his diary. "Goddamn, all day printing at the GAW-son of a bitch-what have I been doing for the last 25 years?" ... Ron died at 12:15 p.m., January 9th, 1998 at his home in the Carmelita Apartments on Valencia Street in San Francisco's Mission District. He was 59 years old. BIO
