Robert Dorian Price

Robert Dorian Price, 56, of Midland passed away on Sunday, June 8, 2014. Graveside services will be held at 10:00 a.m., Thursday, June 12, 2014, at Resthaven North Cemetery. Robert was born on January 16, 1958, to Robert Charles Price and Joyce L. McCarver Price in Bakersfield, California. He was raised with two siblings, Philles and Justin. He became a father in 1982, to a daughter, Rebekah Rhea Price, and a stepfather in 2001, to Leslie Hansen and Ashley Hansen-Hall. He met his life partner in 2001 and the two celebrated their 13th anniversary on the day before his passing. Robert had a love for life and all things beautiful. He was an incredible artist and could craft amazing Native American pieces. He was a talented Native American flute player and had recently taken an interest in photography, which he flourished at as well. He used his creative abilities to write beautiful poetry and composition, some of which was published. He was incredibly likeable, loving, and would do anything for any one in need. He was known for literally giving the shirt off his back to strangers and once even gifted a two ton truck! Robert would have given his last dime to someone without a second thought. He and his smile will be greatly missed by all that knew him. Robert is survived by his best friend and partner, Duane E. Hansen; daughter, Rebekah Rhea Price; step-children, Leslie Hansen and Ashley Hansen-Hall (Ivy); siblings, Philles Slack (Tim) and Justin B. Price (Diana); mother, Joyce Price; grandchildren, Tony Winfield Jr., Aiden Winfield, Jacob Winfield, Zelda Hall, and Demetrius Hansen. He is preceded in death by his father, Robert Charles Price.
