With deepest sorrow, we announce that Lev Rice IV, age 42 a beloved son, brother, father, husband, family member and friend passed suddenly on Saturday, August 29, 2020 at his home in Texas City, Texas.

Those who knew Lev, even just a little, were always greeted with a contagious and humongous smile. He loved to laugh and to make everyone around him laugh and feel loved. He loved his boys and family so much. He enjoyed playing chess, reading and all types of animals from domestic to exotic. Whether he knew you or not, if you were hurting for anything and he could make it stop, he would. The world, our world has lost a shining light.

Lev will be missed everyday by his wife Amanda, his children, Marques, Lil Lev, Baby Lev, and Carmyne, his father, Lev Rice Jr. and wife Cynthia Marie Rice, his mother, Shirley Ann Rice, sister Siritha Ritell, brothers Christopher Rice and wife, Alfreda, Nathaniel Rice and wife, Lawanna, his Grandmother Rita Ritell, God Sister Danyette Love, step siblings Michelle Vaughn, Kimberly Gaskin, Adrian Gaskin and wife, Melissa and a host of Aunts, Uncles, Nieces, Nephews, Cousins and many, many friends.

We know Lev is now with his Paternal Grandmother Leora Coleman, Maternal Grandfather Junior Ritell, Paternal Grandfather Lev Rice Sr. his aunts Renea and Regina, and CousinJay.
