Shelby Timothy Trice, a native of Mobile, AL, passed away January 6, 2019 at the age of 62.

Tim was a devoted son and father, a beloved brother, and had many lifelong friends. He enjoyed mountain biking, running, and playing rugby with the Battleship Rugby Club. He was an avid reader, and loved music, with an extensive collection of vinyl records and ticket stubs from the many concerts he attended. He was a dedicated listener of NPR and 92 ZEW, and bragged he might be the winningest contestant for the 3:30 theme park.

He is survived by his daughters, Curry Ann Trice and Mary Elizabeth Trice; sisters, Mary Elizabeth Warman (Richard) and Carol Jacobs Lazenby (John); and nephews, Brian Michael Jacobs and Owen Field Jacobs. He was predeceased by his parents, Shelby Currie Trice and Georgine Field Trice.

My wife & I were privileged to live next door to Tim these last 10 years. He was a wonderful neighbor who was very generous with his lawn equipment. We had many good over-the-fence conversations. We had a running joke about my easy listening radio station that blared as I worked outside. We will miss him very much, and we pray for God's peace to be with his family.
