About Daniel

Welcome to the website dedicated to preserving the memory of Daniel Buckner Price (1975-2003). Daniel was a talented artist and a loving husband, brother, son, and friend. A native of New Orleans, Daniel was tragically murdered at the age of 28 in San Francisco while trying to protect his wife from a would-be assailant. We miss Daniel constantly, and put together this website so that others who knew and loved Daniel around the world, as well as those that were not so lucky, can continue to have Daniel bring them joy through his beatiful art and infectious smile. For more information about Daniel's life, please visit the About Daniel page.
