Arthur Lee Martines, a former two-term mayor of Price, died Friday in Salt Lake City. He was 73.

Martines served as mayor from 1982 to 1989. Before then, he had been elected to the Carbon School District Board, serving for 12 years.

An avid sports fan and fierce competitor, Martines was a leading scorer for the baseball team at for Notre Dame High School in Price. He also played football for the College of Eastern Utah, and was active in basketball, bowling and golf over the years.

"We're gonna miss him," said his lifetime friend Paul Dupin. They met more than a half century ago. When Martines's family moved out of Price, he stayed with the Dupin family so he could continue going to school in Price.

Martines's terms on the school board were not his only contribution to education. He earned a Master's in Education from Brigham Young University and taught elementary school in Price and Evanston, Wyo.

He was also an Exalted Ruler in the Elks Lodge and was a Mason.
