Christopher Price – Obituary


On Thursday, November 26th, 2020, Christopher Scott Price, a loving dad, son and brother, passed away at the age of 51. 

“Scotty”, “Wave”, “Wave Man”, as he was fondly called by many who loved him, was born on January 14, 1969 in Birmingham, Alabama. As a child, Scott lived in Charlotte, NC, São Paulo, Brazil, San Clemente, CA, and finally Raleigh, NC. He attended Millbrook High School where he graduated in 1987.

After graduation, he pursued a career in the food industry and studied under private chefs as well as attending courses at the Culinary Institute of America in San Francisco.

Scott was a loving father and adored his daughter, Lauren.  He was a phenomenal chef and a passionately talented drummer.  He had the gift of wit and humor and always made those around him laugh with his many “impressions”. He loved and cherished his family and was a longtime, loyal fan of the Las Vegas (Oakland) Raiders.
