William Steven Price, age 49, passed away unexpectedly on Friday, May 3, 2019, at Emory Hillandale Hospital. He was born on April 5, 1970, in Cold Spring, NY to Marilynne Fitzpatrick and Richard L. Price. Will is most known as a musician, leading several bands, both in the Atlanta area and in Ithaca, NY. His bands, Boiler, MuckRaker, and Long Claw were signed to record labels Mayhem Records, Eternal Sound Records, and Pavement Entertainment, respectively. His love of music was eclipsed only by his love of animals and love for his family and friends. He is survived by his mother and father, brothers, Rip, Mark, and Brian Price; fiancée, Suzanne Beam; treasured friend, Allison Corley Elwood; and many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews. Those who wish to celebrate Will's life are invited to Wages and Sons Funeral Home, 1040 Main Street, Stone Mountain, from 3 pm - 5 pm on Wednesday, May 8, 2019. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the Bernie Sanders presidential campaign or to the animal rescue of your choice.

  1. To my dearest brother and my oldest friend. You will always be in my heart and soul. I love you man!

  2. For someone who was always such a big planner, you kind of left us all high an dry on this funeral thing. Just kidding, my love. I miss you so much that I can’t stand it. Saying my final goodbye to you today before consigning you to the flames was probably the most difficult thing I’ve done in my life and you know what I’ve been through. At least you went out like a viking, sans longboat. Sorry. A girl can only do so much. I love you now and always.

  3. We will always remember Will. He lived life on his own terms without apology. I always respected that. I will miss hearing his laugh. We will miss his music but feel privilleged to have seen and heard him. He remains a cherished part of our family. I pray that those that he loved will find comfort in all his memories. Love is eternal. Rest well Will.

  4. One of my favorite parts of the work day was hanging out with Will. I would say something random just to make him smile; it was even better when I made him laugh. He was always portraying this big tough guy but I was one of the few that knew better; he was an awesome guy. I will definitely miss those moments and the discussions we had about GoT, kitties, and music. Luckily we will always have your music to help us fill a piece of that huge void left. Though you are dearly missed, I am glad you found your peace.

  5. To my baby boy. You left me without saying goodbye. It’s Okay though because I know you weren’t expecting to go to leave before me. When we see each other again, I can’t wait to tell you how much I have loved you all the years gone gone by and all the years to come. Missing you does not say enough about the true feelings I will have for you till we meet again. Mommy loves her little William. Rest my son.
