A parade of motorcycles from area biker’s clubs has been planned for Saturday morning, Aug. 15 as a tribute to the life of Chris Price, 37 of Lebanon, who died Aug. 6 from injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident near Atlanta, Ga.
The parade route will start at Five Oaks Golf and Country Club and continue east on Highway 70 to South Hartmann Drive then on to Leeville Pike to College Hills Church of Christ, the site of the funeral. Services will be held at 11 a.m. at the church by Bishop A.J. Valentine. Burial will follow at Wilson County Memorial Gardens. A graduate of Lebanon High School and Middle Tennessee State University, he was a dedicated member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., a member of the Nashville-based Steel Horsemen, a former All-OVC baseball player for the Blue Raiders and played professional baseball for the Kansas City Royals organization. Members of Price’s teams, fraternity and biker’s club will be on hand for the services, according to his father, Mike Price. “We want everyone to be aware of the parade route so traffic will not be a problem. We expect hundreds of bikers from across Middle Tennessee and from other states to be in attendance,” Mr. Price added. Price survived by his wife Marsha D. Price; children Trey, Frankie, Morgan and Kristin; and father William "Mike" (Rochell) Price. Also surviving is brother Jamil Price; mother-in-law Helen Ivey; sister / brother-in-law Rick and Michele Frazier; uncles Wayne Reynolds (Marie), Frank Rashed, Bill Reynolds (Gloria), Tony Hughes (Mattie), Glenn Reynolds (Tammy); special aunt Lynn Reynolds; niece Ivey Frazier; nephew Rod Frazier; special cousin Franquita Hughes; lifelong friends Adrian Kelly and Cyrus Hancock; a plethora of great aunts, cousins, church family, relatives, and other dear friends whom he loved dearly.
