Arthur Valleau Price Jr.

October 25, 1931 ~ August 2, 2018 (age 86)

Arthur Valleau Price, 86, a long time resident of Carmel Valley, California, passed away peacefully in his sleep, surrounded by family and friends. 

            Val, as he was known to most, was born in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, to Arthur Valleau Price Sr and Mildred Anne Von Drozkowsky.  He received his undergraduate degree from Cornell University in Ithaca, NY, and his medical degree from the University of Toronto Faculty of Medicine.  After practicing pediatrics in the San Francisco Bay Area for 33 year, he retired with his wife Mildred to Carmel Valley, California in 1990.

         Val was an avid cyclist, adventurer, world traveler, and accomplished sailor.   One of his proudest achievements was his work on a project that produced the book Donde Hay No Doctor (Where There Is No Doctor) by David  Werner.  Val spent countless hours providing medical expertise for the book, now translated into more than 80 languages.

             He is survived by his wife, Mildred, his three children, John V. Price and wife Pearl, David Lee Price and Laura Ann Price, his step children, Lauran S. Yorita, Michael J. Yorita, granddaughters Janeka and Tahnee, and his brother John T.A.Price.  He was preceded in death by his parents Arthur V. Price and Mildred A. Price and his sister Patricia Price Leavitt.

 In lieu of flowers please send donations to the Ventana Chapter of the Sierra Club Memorial Donation Site (see below) in honor of Arthur V. Price.
