Mr. Rice was preceded in death by his wife, Norma Rice; father, Clarence J. Rice; brother, J.B. Rice; and sister, Bonnie Mae Rice.
Left to cherish his memory are his son, Chadwick Rice of Moreland, Georgia,
daughters, Candace Rice of Fort Polk, Louisiana and Ashley Chinol of Waynesville, North Carolina,
mother, Dovie Rice of Weaverville, North Carolina,
sisters, Brenda Marler of Weaverville, North Carolina and Lettie Hensley of Sprucd Pine, North Carolina,
grandchildren, Cayden Rice, Peyton Gardner, Candler Rice, and Jaylen Taylor,
