Lawrence “Larry” Jack Paice passed away on February 12, 2016 after a lengthy illness. He died peacefully at Pershing General Hospital in the city of Lovelock, Nevada, where he resided for the final year of his life.
Larry was born in Beaver, Utah to Howard Paice and Della Henderson on August 17, 1942 and spent his childhood there. The family moved to Ely where Larry attended White Pine High School, graduating in 1961. He spent a few years in the Army at Ft Bliss, Texas and then returned to Ely.
Larry stayed and worked in Ely for the next 45 years. During that time, he worked for AT & T and then for Bath Lumber. He was a member of the Lions club and enjoyed volunteering at the annual wrestling tournament and pancake breakfast. Larry was well suited to a life in Ely. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, camping and exploring the dirt roads and tracks of the area. A dutch oven, a pound of bacon and a dozen eggs were essential traveling gear. He left Ely reluctantly in 2010 to live with his daughter in Sparks, Nevada, then moved on to Lovelock.
Larry was preceded in death by his parents, Howard Paice and Della Henderson Paice, and his two brothers Ray and Durrell.
He is survived by his sister Judy (Hendrix), his two daughters, Michelle (Palko) and Melanie (Guilbault), and three grandchildren, Autumn Palko, Noah and Zane Guilbault.
