Richard Price, 89, of Manchester, NH, formerly of New London, NH; Bexley, OH; and Beverly, MA, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, August 3, 2021 at Riverwoods Manchester (NH). He was married to his beloved wife Jean Stapledon Price for 68 years; they met in 5th grade. After graduating from Hamilton College, where he captained the hockey team, Dick served in the US Marine Corps in Korea, Japan and the Far East. After the service he got a job at the Columbus Academy and relocated to Bexley, Ohio. Dick was a beloved teacher for 38 years at the Columbus Academy, challenging his students in science and inspiring them in activities such as rocket club and quilting club, as well as coaching nearly every sport at the school, notably football, track and tennis. He was dean of the middle school and the school's athletic director. The Academy honored him by dedicating a new computer center to him; one year a graduating 8th grade class request that he personally present their diplomas to them. When not teaching he enjoyed playing tennis, squash, sailing, running, sewing, cooking and gardening. He also counted cross stitched, wove on a loom, played the saxophone and clarinet, and made intricate, hand-crafted jigsaw puzzles to the delight of friends and family. He did not sit still for very long! In addition to his wife, Jean, he is survived by his daughter, Leslie P.

Dick was a great friend to so many of us and strung all of our tennis rackets. I loved visiting with him when I dropped off or picked up my rackets. I , also, fondly remember him when he ran the pool at Columbus Country Club in the summers. He will be greatly missed.
