William (Bill) Price passed away on August 8, 2020, at his home. He served as Mayor Pro Tem on the first elected Weddington Town Council in 1984 and was the first representative of District 4. He only served officially for a year, but he was a steward of the community and a major supporter for the town and residents, and a regular fixture at the Council meetings in the 30+ years since. He was a beloved resident of our town and his dedication to and advocacy for Weddington will be dearly missed.
