Thomas L. Trice (Biddy) of Denton, MD, passed away at his home surrounded by his loving family on Monday, October 7, 2019. He was 66 years old.
Born in Seaford, DE on October 17, 1952, Mr. Trice was the son of the late Wilmer Lee Trice and Mildred Steen Trice. He was a 1970 graduate of Colonel Richardson High School.
Mr. Trice was an active member of the Denton Community, having served in many public capacities. He served on the Park and Fair Boards for the 4-H Park near Denton and was a Past President and Life Member of the Denton Volunteer Fire Co. (DVFC) as well as being a Past President of the Denton Little League where he had served as a coach on many age levels. He had also been a member of the MD-DE Auctioneers Association and was a member of the First State Antique Tractor Club. In addition, he was an avid collector of farm toys. However, his greatest joy came from being a husband, father, and grandfather; and he felt his greatest accomplishment was establishing and being the owner and operator of Trice Auctions in Denton starting in 2001.
Mr. Trice is survived by his wife, Sylvia J. Trice of Denton; three sons: Thomas L. Trice (Jessica) of Denton, Bryan J. Trice (Holly) of Denton, and Richard L.

He was preceded in death by an infant daughter, Karin Lyn Trice; a sister, Brenda Trice, and his father-in-law and mother-in-law, Richard F. and M. Jean Behlke.
