Daniel Joseph (Red) Price, 61

Daniel Joseph (Red) Price, 61, Wabash, passed away on Saturday, Dec. 5, 2020 at Parkview Randallia Hospice, Fort Wayne. He was born on Nov. 28, 1959, in Wabash, to Roger and Edna Ann (Mullett) Price (later Manning.)

Danny was a lifelong Wabash area resident and attended Wabash schools before joining the U.S. Army in 1977.  He served in the Federal Republic of Germany for three years as a wrecker operator and Pershing Missile crew member.   He married Janice Music in Springfield Tenn., on June 30, 1984.  Danny (known as Red to everyone but his siblings) worked at Wabash General Tire until he was medically retired. Red was mechanically inclined and enjoyed working on automobiles, always looking for the next deal on another cherry.  He also was the lead singer and rhythm guitar player for the High-Water Band, which played around Wabash for several years.  If there was a guitar around, you can be assured Red would start strumming.

He was proceeded in death by his father, Roger Ivan Price, on Nov. 29, 1989, and his wife, Janice on Nov. 10, 2018.  He is survived by their four children. Jennifer (Doug) Gatchel, of LaFontaine, Daniel (Carrie Ann) Price, Roger (Jennifer) Price, and David A. Price, all of Wabash; eight grandchildren, Allie, Jaxon, James, Abel, Scarlett Price, Nikki, Tyler and Andy Gatchel.

He is also survived by his parents, Danny and Edna Manning of Wabash; siblings Patrick Verlyn, of North Manchester, Michael Roger, of West Liberty, Iowa, Nannette (Richard) Grindle, of Wabash, Andy J (Deborah) Price, of Manhattan, Kan., and Thomas Frank (Terry Lynne), of North Las Vegas, Nev.
