Dery Funeral Home
Our loving son, Eric, went to heaven after suffering a Grand Mal seizure at his
home in Boulder, Colorado.
Eric leaves his parents, Ronald and Kim Rice, his little sister, Mackenzie Rice,
his brothers, Trevor Rice and Braden Rice, who with his girlfriend, Sara Langlois,
welcomed their first child, Bradley, to this world on June 1st, and his grandparents,
Phyllis and Donald Kelly and Pamela Rice (and the late Charles Rice, Sr.)
Eric was a vibrant and outgoing man who brought laughter and happiness to all
those around him. He genuinely cared for all people, always lending a helping hand, and
bringing joy with his radiant smile.
Eric will be greatly missed by his family and many friends. We are especially
grateful for his dear friends, Norman Jailbert, Dan Wade, and Kristina Grinbergs under
whose loving and watchful eyes Eric felt safe.
He will forever be in our hurting hearts.
Eric will rest with his Grandpere and Grandmere Lussier, close to his loving
Grandmother Lynda and Uncle David.
