Thomas “Tom” Glen Rice, 64, of Nauvoo, passed away on June 3, 2012, at his home surrounded by his family. He was born on Aug. 11, 1947, in Winston County. He attended high school at Winston County High School and went in the United States Army where he served his country for five years during the Vietnam Conflict. He served as an elected constable for two terms in Winston County. Tom was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, where he served as an Elder, High Priest, Branch President, Temple ordinance worker and home teacher. While serving in Vietnam, he received the Bronze Star, but his greatest accomplishment is that of a loving husband, father and grandfather. He made the statement that if anything good was said of him it would be that he loved his family. He especially enjoyed spending time with his family and friends.
