Floyd “Buddy” Rice, 78, Westbrook, passed away peacefully at the Mitchell County Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Colorado City on Tuesday, May 28, 2019 with his loving family by his side. He was born in Coahoma Texas to Homer and Birdie Hull Rice on March 21, 1941. Buddy was a hard-working man who loved his God, his family, and his pets. In 1966 Buddy married the love of his life, Miss Marlena Currie, the woman he would spend the next 53 years with, finding new ways to fall deeper in love. He also started his life-long career as an employee for Mitchell County that same year, it was a career that lasted 34 years until his retirement in 2000. In his spare time Buddy enjoyed working on lawn mowers, going camping, and fishing. In his later years he found a passion for listening to and singing gospel music. His love for family and hard-work ethic are legacies that he passed on to his family, and an example that will be carried on for generations to come. Buddy is survived by his wife Marlena Rice of Westbrook, by his son Charles Rice of Colorado City, by his daughters Julie Proctor and husband Bubba of San Angelo and Debbie King of Colorado City. He is also survived by his grandchildren Russell, Kingslee, Laremi, Courtney, Kelsey, McKena, and Madison, and by 3 great-grandchildren Gavin, Fin, and Gabe. He is also survived by a brother B.J.
