Anthony Robin Price died at his home in the remote town of Eastend, Saskatchewan, Canada, in September 2005 aged 68 years. It is place where the winter temperatures can be extremely low.
He was born in the Eastern Cape village of Calo (population in 2016 of 503) and educated at Christian Brothers College in Kimberley. He entered Wits Medical School in 1955, graduating MB BCh in 1961. He completed his house-jobs at Baragwanath and Edendale Hospital, Pietermaritzburg and then moved to Pretoria to specialize in obstetrics.
In 1964 he married Margaret Hunt and together they had two sons, Wayne and Mark. From Pretoria, Anthony moved to Addington Hospital in Durban where he specialized in ENT.
In 1979, at age 42 years he emigrated (alone?) to Canada, moving from job to job, and then settled in Eastend with a younger woman and her three children. ‘Price and I had a typical father-daughter relationship. He fought with me, he educated me, but most of all, he loved me and accepted me unconditionally.’
Anthony Price doted on his dogs Mr T, Bailey, Danny and Hershey. ‘These were the most spoilt dogs in the world.’ He was generous ‘and would always support the underdog . . . He always put others before himself, in all aspects of his life, at home, at work, and at play.’
