MARK TRICE Mark Trice, 64, passed away November 20, 2020. He was born December 10, 1955 in Chicago, Ill. to Delores and Gerald Trice. The oldest of four children, he grew up in Buffalo Grove, Ill. Mark met his wife, Phyllis, in 1976, and they were married June 23, 1979. They lived in Mundelein, Ill. before moving to Pahrump, Nev. in 1999. Mark worked as a finish carpenter most of his life, but most called him a "master carpenter," as he was well known for being meticulous, precise, detail-oriented and "doing it right the first time." He truly put his heart into his work. He worked for several companies in Pahrump including K.T. Builders, C.R. Homes and most recently, Avco Builders. He was an excellent cook and enjoyed cooking for his family and friends. He also loved to travel with his wife and kids and was always looking forward to their next adventure no matter how near or far. Mark loved God, loved to serve others and was often unaware of how his life impacted those around him. He was humble, kind, patient, funny and generous. He was the favorite brother, uncle, "in-law" and friend. Mark is survived by his wife of 41 years, Phyllis; daughters, Jessica and Andrea (Matthew) Wallace; son, Jacob; mother, Delores Pequignot, sisters, Susan Gass and Lana Hunt; brother, Curtis (Vikki) Trice; grandchildren, Damien, Mathias, Leanna and William, and numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and friends. He was preceded in death by his daughter, Angelina and father, Gerald Trice. A Celebration of his life will be held at a later date.
