Everette Wayne Brice, 92, died peacefully on June 2, 2015 at the Veterans Home in The Dalles, Ore.
He was born in Grove, Okla., August 7, 1922. He was born to JC & Lettie Brice. He had 5 sisters and 3 brothers.
He married Ola A. Brice January 11, 1947, in Yuma, Ariz. They lived in The Dalles off and on since 1957, where they raised their three boys. Everette was a World War II Veteran where he served in France as a Military Policeman. He was a member of the Local 29 Ironworkers and helped build many dams and bridges in the Pacific Northwest.
One thing he was very proud of was his three boys. He would always tell everybody when they weren't around, how proud he was. He also enjoyed driving the hospital van to help people get to appointments.
