Aaron Price

Aaron Joseph Price was born August 31, 1989, to Rich and Ronda Price, growing up near Mud Butte, SD. He attended Sulphur Creek Country School for nine years in rural Meade Country. He then attended Newell High School, graduating in 2008.  Aaron was a wrestler and bareback rider throughout high school.

Aaron worked not only on the home ranch, but at the Hotchkiss Ranch; they were a second family to him. Eventually he worked full time on the family ranch with his dad. Ranching was his passion and he loved black angus cattle. In 2016 Aaron bought his own place at Mud Butte. He was always looking for a better way to do things or a way to improve his land and cattle.

Aaron looked a long time for the love of his life. When he met Tyra Caster he knew she was the one. They were married June 18, 2016, and began a life together on the Estella Reese Ranch. Aaron’s great-grandmother’s home place. Aaron enjoyed rebuilding the corrals, fixing everything up, and making it their home. He took great pride in keeping up his place, his Chevy pickup, and his JD tractor.

A baby girl, Ellen Dell, was born January 2021. She was Aaron’s new light in life. She gave him lots of smiles, making his last months more joyful.

Aaron fought a long, hard battle with cancer, always looking forward to complete healing. His faith grew stronger each day for Jesus, and now he is ranching with Him.

Aaron Price was a very honorable, hardworking young man.

He is survived by his wife, Tyra; daughter, Ellen; parents, Rich and Ronda; brother, Tyler; sister, Tara (Taber) Simpson; grandmother, Ellen; lots of aunts, uncles, cousins, and good friends.
