Charles (Chet) Rice


AGE: 68 : Wilmington


Chet’s strong, brave, generous heart stopped beating unexpectedly on August 5, 2014 at Christiana Hospital. Chet was the son of the late Charles and Virginia Rice. He was an amazing athlete and then a coach to many both on and off the fields, courts and office. He was an avid Philly sports fan and could often be seen in his well-loved Eagles sweatshirt.


His memory will live on in the hearts, stories, jokes and songs of his loving family. Chet is survived by his wife Madeline, two brothers and one sister. His legacy will continue through his nine children, nineteen grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren and a host of in-laws, nieces, nephews and friends.


Relatives and friends may call at CHANDLER FUNERAL HOME, 2506 Concord Pike, Wilmington on Friday August 8, 2014 from 6:00 to 8:00 PM. A Funeral Mass will be offered at St. Mary Magdalen Church, 7 Sharpley Road, Wilmington on Saturday August 9 at 10:00 AM. Interment will be private.


In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to United Cerebral Palsy of Delaware, 700A River Road, Wilmington, DE 19809

My memories of Chet are our on our classt trip to Washington DC ... me, Chet and Audrey hung out a lot on that trip ... He made us laugh and we all had a good time ... Since Chet and I had the same initials for our last names ... we sat in homeroom near each other in high school and became good friends ... he was always a gentleman and a good athelete too ... as a mater of fact he gave me his basketball and cross country running shoes that were on a necklace ... :)   Chet will be missed ... I wrote to Madeline when I heard the news and sent my prayers to the family.... very sad and very sudden ! :(
