Robert B Rice of Wappingers Falls left us suddenly on Friday, June 21st 2019. Many have said; Rob was “one of kind” and “I’ve never met anyone like him”. He worked tirelessly as a dedicated Mason and as the General Manager of Highland Valley Supply, Inc. When he wasn't working, you could usually find him by the pond or one of the local streams with a pole in his hand and a smile on his face, or in the garage getting ready to take out his 68' Camaro SS. A passionate outdoorsman, Rob had a deep value and respect for both nature and animals. He was a seasoned hunter, fisherman and trapper and was a member of the Elks Club. The number of lives Rob has touched and the lifelong friendships he has held will be forever stored in our hearts. If you were in Robs life, you weren’t a friend, you were family. Every year on June 21st, he would remind us that it was the Equinox, and he would tell everyone with child-like enthusiasm. Now we will never forget.
