Dec. 11, 1915 ~ July 21, 2013

John H. Rice was born in Dixon, Calif. and lived in Paradise and Chico, Calif., for 87 years. He moved to Medford, Ore. 10 years ago after retiring from Chico Dental Lab and he and our mom traveled the world, visited family, and spent summers fishing.

Our family has said goodbye, for now, to a gentleman who was honest, kind, and remarkable. He was a member of the "Greatest Generation," our Dad.

He was a husband to Doris Rice; father to Craig (Nancy) Rice, of Federal Way, Wash. and Carol (Duane) Rice Lowenberg, of Medford, Ore.; grandfather of five; and great-grandfather of eight.

He taught us the meaning of companionship and family love. His last days were spent interested in and caring for his family.

He was married for over 72 years to the love of his life, they are together again.
