JAMES F. RICE - Success is a result of continued labor, and is determined by the individual ability to recognize
opportunity and pursue this with unflagging energy. James F. Rice, a leading undertaker of Johnson City, New York,
through such means has attained a prominent place among the citizens of that town, and commands the respect of
all who know him.
Mr. Rice was born August 21, 1881, in Newark Valley, New York, son of John J. and Ellen Rice; his father was a
school teacher for several years and later in life developed a natural ability for mechanics, which occupation
he followed. James F. Rice attended the public schools, and his education was supplemented by home training from
his father. At an early age he had decided upon his present business as his career and attended a school of embalming
in preparation. After completing his apprenticeship he located in Johnson City, where he engaged in business, and
has successfully continued to the present time.
Mr. Rice is a member of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, and attends the Presbyterian church of Johnson City.
