Family of Michael Dupre Price mourns the father of two

The family of a man killed last Friday is trying to raise money to lay the father of two to rest.

Michael Dupre Price was fatally shot in the Marshall Heights neighborhood, and police have not yet identified a suspect.

Price’s sister has created a GoFundMe to raise money for Price’s funeral. Any remaining funds will be given to Price’s two sons, ages 16 and 2.

He was a loving father, loyal family member and possessed an all around, infectious sense of humor. Unique is an understatement when comes to explaining this young man,” Tuluv Price wrote.

Tuluv Price wrote she will never forget her brother’s praise of how his sons were doing.

“I still remember the voice of dignity he spoke with when telling me his oldest son was on honor roll and an ‘all around athlete’ playing baseball football, soccer and basketball. He was so in love with and optimist about his youngest son’s future, especially the hope of him starting school soon,” Price wrote. “These are the things that are breaking my heart. I always wonder if murderers knew that their victims were just normal everyday people trying to make it home just like them, would they still kill and want to murder?”

As of Friday afternoon, the GoFundMe has raised $620 of a $3,000 goal.
