Terry L. Tice, 64, of Fairfield Bay, Ark., joined Jesus on Thursday, Dec. 26, 2013.
He was born June 25, 1949, in Sioux City, Iowa, to William "Bill" and Lavon E. (Brouillette) Tice.
He married Dale Green on Sept. 18, 2004, and they made their home in Fairfield Bay, Ark.
He loved the outdoors, hunting, fishing, and the lake. Terry had a life long love of cars, especially loved his little "car." He also loved to ride motorcycles and over the last few years could be seen going to church in his "car: aka Club Car." He was a member of St. Francis of Assisi Church and was a 4th Degree Knight of Columbus. Terry was a U.S. Air Force
Veteran and served in Vietnam of which he was very proud of his service to his country. He displayed his flag with pride and never left home without his Veteran cap. Above all was his love of God. He never missed church and enjoyed going to other Catholic churches when he traveled. All travel plans started with locating the closest churches and finding out mass times. His love, laughter, and wit will be greatly missed.
