Wayne Matthew Price passed away on Saturday Dec. 16, 2017 at Providence Mt. St. Vincent in West Seattle. He was born on Nov. 13, 1947 to Norma Ellen Abigail and John Walton Price in Portland, Or.

Most of his working life was spent at Western Washington University. Wayne retired in 2013. He was also a licensed Electrician and Electrical Administrator. Wayne loved helping his family and many friends with their house projects and repairs, it gave him an excuse to buy more tools. He loved skiing and had the strength and grace to do it beautifully, making it look effortless.

    To Wayne’s Family, Working with Wayne at WWU back in the early days of his career I always admired his intellect and of course his technical savvy. He was always a friendly face in the workplace. In later years, when I moved to a new position within his department, he welcomed me and made me feel at home, and at ease. He was simply a lovely man with a generous and kind heart. There wasn’t a single conversation we had in those later years that did not include his wife, Annie, or his daughter. He was so proud of his family and often wove them into the fabric of our conversation. Because of this, I know how your hearts must be breaking now, so I wanted you to know that even at work, Wayne thought so much about those closest to him, and when he was away from you at work, he was finding ways to make others feel welcome and at ease while also sharing stories of the people he loved most in the world.. Thank you for sharing the beautiful video memorial. I’ve watched it three times and cried each time. What a tribute to a beautiful human being. My thoughts and prayers are with you, Earlene Kent
