Dennis Rice has missed a lot in the last 35 years.
He missed his children’s graduations and weddings. He’s missed the grandchildren they would have had.
Dennis didn’t miss any of those things by choice. Instead, tragically, on March 6, 1979, a house fire at his home in St. Joe killed his wife and four of his five children.
The Enterprise’s account of that fire noted that “Reports indicated the children’s bodies were found huddled together with the baby in her mother’s arms.”
