Stice, Dr. Richard B.
On October 29, 2013, Dr. Richard B. Stice finished his battle with cancer and went home to the Lord. He lived his life for his three loves, his Lord, his family, and his patients.
Dr. Stice was born December 30, 1938, in Tulsa, Oklahoma to Elmer and Helen Stice. He has left behind his wife, Nancy, of 52 years; four children, Stuart Stice (Diane), Scott Stice (Jeanine), Stacy Guhl (Christian), and Shely Landrum (Adam); eleven grandchildren: Morgan and Matthew Stice; Shaun, Tyler, and Ellis Stice; Skylar and Leyton Guhl; Brian, Laura, Douglas, and Megan Landrum; a sister, Peggy Blaschke; sister-in-laws Sammye Disiere and Patty Harrison; and four nieces; Kelly Donner, Kara Blaschke, Elizabeth Grady,and Jane Ann Scalf and one nephew, Craig Disiere.
He loved them all and embraced each as his own. Dr. Stice graduated from Oklahoma State University in 1961 and from Oklahoma University Medical School in 1967. He was honorably discharged from the Marines in 1959 having served 6 years. He immediately joined the Navy after medical school and remained a psychiatrist in the Navy until 1986. He was in private practice following his military career until his death. His patients became his extended family and always held a special place in his heart. He will be sorely missed by all who were blessed with his love and friendship.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to the National Cancer Society, Riverbluff Church (N. Charleston), or to the Coastal Center of Summerville. Funeral arrangements will be announced on the James A. Dyal website at www.jamesadyal.com.
