Howard Henry (Hook) Rice, 84, Campbellsville, KY native
Howard Henry "Hook" Rice, 84, of Birmingham, Alabama passed away August 20, 2020 after a brief illness.
The graveside service for Howard Henry Rice will be held at 11amET on Saturday, September 12, 2020, at Brookside Cemetery.
Born and raised In Campbellsville, Kentucky, he was the only son of Evelyn Henry Rice and Dr. Howard Rice. He was a proud alumnus of The College of William and Mary where he was a member Of Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity. Howard then earned a degree from Vanderbilt Law School.
He spent 2 years in the US Army 101st Airborne Division stationed at Fort Campbell, Kentucky before beginning his dream career with the FBI. He worked in both Milwaukee, WI and Newark, NJ while with the FBI.
In 1969, Howard, his wife, and children moved to Montgomery, Alabama for him to take a job as head of investigations with South Central Bell. Upon retiring he worked with the state Attorney General's office.
Hook, as he was affectionately known was an avid reader and wine connoisseur. He also enjoyed gardening and stamp collecting. But above all these interests came sports. He loved watching his children and grandchildren compete in everything from football to tennis to BMX racing.
As usual with most Kentuckians, Hook loved to watch UK basketball. If a game were not televised where he was, he would call his mother and receive a play by play over the phone.
Howard is survived by his wife of 22 years, Glenda G. Rice. His children Chris Rice (Ange), Jeff Rice (Cecile), and Evelyn Rice O'Leary (Joe). His Beloved grandchildren Taylor Rice (Krysta), Michael O'Leary, Jacob Rice, William O'Leary, Matthew Rice, and Kendall Rice. And as of August 27, 2020, great grandson Raylen James Rice!
Memorials can be sent to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105.
Parrott & Ramsey Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements. Online condolences at parrottramsey.com.
