Rice, Uncle, John “Tyler” Rice, maternal great grandparents Peter T. Sarant, Martha J. Cooper, paternal grandparents, Gary Barker Sr. and Judith Czar, maternal great grandparents John J. Rice and Wanda Rice, and paternal great grandparents Catherine and George Czar, and Margarett and Charles Barker.A gathering of the family will be held early next week. The family asks for continued prayers for peace, strength, and comfort.
