Gordon Doyle Rice, a native and longtime resident of Morgan City, was called to his heavenly home on Wednesday, October 9, 2019 at the age of 52.

Father, son, brother, friend - Gordon was a uniquely giving individual with a heart of gold. He was a people person, who never met a stranger and enjoyed a good life. Known for his prankster ways, Gordon set the record in Morgan City for starting the largest food fight and also became well known for his art work on the water tower (where he painted Mrs. Weber's name). Gordon was a proud graduate of the Morgan City High School (site of the famous food fight) and was a hard and dedicated worker. Gordon was also a proud and dedicated Mason and Shriner. An avid outdoorsman, Gordon enjoyed fishing and hunting and always invited his friends out for a boat ride to see the beautiful swamps in our area. His greatest joy in life was spending time with his family, especially his girls. Mud riding, water sports, time spent at the camp, even skydiving; Gordon knew the important thing in his life was time spent with his daughters. Gordon was a remarkable gentleman, a spontaneous soul, and a truly, genuine person. He will be deeply missed but never, ever forgotten.

Those blessed with Gordon's memory are his two loving daughters, Alexis Rice and Victoria Rice; his mother, Doylene Rice Porter and her husband, Harry; three brothers, Hubert Earl Rice, David Paul Rice, and Frank Jonathan Rice; one sister, Shelia Reneé Rice; nephews, Peyton Rice, Hubert Lee Rice II, William Marin, Adler Rice, Colin Rice; niece, Tammy Rice; and extended family and friends.

He joined in heaven his father, Hubert Lee Rice and one nephew, David Paul Rice.

Whenever I think of summer in Louisiana, I think back to all the trips we made to the camp. Endless hours of fishing, cooking, telling stories and making memories that will last a lifetime. You always welcomed all of us with open arms and made sure we had a great time. You will be missed, Gordo. Rest easy.
