Carl Price, 90, died Tuesday, November 16, 2010, at his home in Crescent City with his son, John Webb, at his bedside. Carl was born November 1, 1920, in Geneva, Ohio.

As a child, he went to school for his first 10 years in a one-room schoolhouse where his mother taught, and where Carl complained, “I spent a lot of time standing in the corner.” He was an adventurous youth and at age 15 ran away from home to try his hand at cowboying. He rode the rails down to Mexico and ended up surviving the ordeal by washing dishes in a cantina on the Texas-Mexico border. He eventually hopped a train back to Geneva and in his high school years led the football team. He also  worked as a caddie for 10 years at the Geneva Golf Club, where he developed a passion for the game and met some of the great golfers of the day.
