Dennis “Denny” C. Rice, Sr., 66, of Conestoga, went home to be with Our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ on December 10, 2014. He leaves behind his beloved wife of 36 years Marina (Jung) Rice.
Born and raised in Lancaster, PA, he was the son of Pauline Rice.
He retired from Kellogg’s after 21 years of employment, prior to that he was previously employed at Lebzelters Total Car Care.
A member of Bible Evangelical Methodist Church and a born again Christian, his Lord and his family were most important to him.
Denny & Marina had a special love that not too many people had. He enjoyed playing his guitar while the two of them sang together. They sang for the Lord at church, Water Street Rescue Mission and various other places. He loved reading the word of God. He loved being with his family and playing with his Grandbabies. He enjoyed playing golf and the game of baseball, and was a die-hard Yankee fan. But most of all he loved the Lord.
In addition to his wife Marina he is survived by 2 children; a daughter Kristin Carstensen (wife of Eric) and their son Brendan as well as a son Shaun Rice (husband of Emily) and their children Grace and Anna. Also surviving are Dennis’s 4 children from a previous marriage; Dennis Jr., Darrell, Darrin, and Mandy; as well as multiple grandchildren and great-grandchildren from this marriage. He will also be missed by a cousin whom he loved like a brother, Jeffrey Rice (husband of Joella) as well as his entire in-law family.
