David L. “Kahuna” Price, 65 of Pekin, passed away at 5:30pm, Friday, April 20, 2018 at his home.
He was born March 17, 1953, in Pekin, to Robert E. and E. Sue (Haley) Price. He married Susan Godbey on October, 19, 1996 in Pekin. She survives.
Dave was preceded in death by his parents.
He is survived by his wife; two step-sons, Matthew Godbey of Pekin, and Dan (Sheri) Hindman of DeKalb, IL; one brother, Tom (Sue) Price of Pekin; and two nieces, Rachel (Jared) Yerly of Pekin and Laura (Jared Deputy) Price of Fairview Heights, IL.
Dave's expansive knowledge of things both common and esoteric was honed during his years in the auto parts industry and wound up making him a fantastic trivia partner later in life. Dave was a master train modeler, and greatly enjoyed being a part of the River City Model Railroad Club. He, also, enjoyed spending time doing various woodworking projects. His keen wit and total recall of jokes made him enjoyable, and occasionally annoying, to be around. Dave loved all sports, especially his beloved Cubs and Bears. His talent for baking, especially around the holidays, produced hundreds of dozens of cookies coveted by family and friends. He was a genuinely good man.
A visitation will be held from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm., Wednesday, April 25, 2018 at Henderson Funeral Home & Crematory, 2131 Velde Dr., Pekin. His funeral service will follow at 6:00 pm with Rev. Jeff Leeman officiating. Cremation will be accorded after the service. Inurnment will be at a later date.
