Andrew LaVelle Price II, affectionally called Boobie was welcomed into this life on August 18, 1983 by his proud parents, Andrew “The Hawk” Price and Demetra Price (Dede) in Los Angeles, California. Andrew was the only child born of this union. Andrew accepted Christ at an early age and loved the Lord and was a God-fearing young man. His favorite scripture was Matthew 6:11-16.

Andrew valued the strength of their bond, and looked forward to every opportunity to cook for family and friends. He was called “Sir Saucey” because of his many delicious dishes. Andrew was well liked and respected by all his friends, neighbors and co-workers. Andrew worked for the City of Los Angeles, Recreation and Parks for nine years as a Recreation Assistant, as well a Sports Coach.

He had a special bond with his son Andrew III, they were best friends. One of his highlights was being able to coach his son in baseball and basketball. They found joy in attending many professional sports games such as WWE shows, Raiders and Lakers games. Andrew loved his parents dearly and it was evident by his last social media post celebration their 39 years of marriage.
