In loving memory of Carl W. Rice, 70, a beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend. Carl was born in Independence, Missouri but most recently resided in Williamsburg, Va. He is survived by his wife of 45 years and the love of his life, Karla Rice, his two sons Jason Rice and Jerod Rice, his grandson and best buddy Nicholas Rice, and his sister Jeanne Rice. He is preceded in death by his father and mother, Charles and Laverne Rice, and his sister Debra Wallen.
Carl proudly served in the United States Marine Corps during the Vietnam war, receiving the Marksmanship Badge and the National Defense Service Medal. He was a machinist by trade and an accomplished carpenter, who loved fishing, gardening, and smoking his world class ribs.
He will be cherished in our hearts forever, dancing with God’s angels.
