During the summer he worked at Caterpillar, and when he graduated, he was hired and worked at Caterpillar for 33 years. Brice had a special relationship with his two children. Emily could talk him into anything. He coached "Odyssey of the Mind" for several years so Emily could participate. The team was always ranked highly. Brice also loved to coach any sport in which Nick was involved. When Nick wanted to play soccer Brice went to a bookstore and bought every soccer book he could find to learn the rules of the game, in order to coach Nick's team. He was a "diehard" Cub Fan and was elated when they finally won the World Series. His main passion was his family and his Church. He was a member of First Christian Church of Peoria all of his life. He loved his church and held various positions. He was honored to receive the title of Elder Emeritus.
The family is very grateful for the care he received from the Snyder Village staff and OSF Hospice team.
