Jerry Rice III, 63, of Cullowhee, NC finished his final ride on July 22, 2022. He was the son of the late Jerry Rice Jr. and Joyce Pauline Crisp Rice.

He is survived by his former wife, Kimberly Rice, and their three sons: Jerry Rice IV (Laura) of Hendersonville, Robert Rice (Malissa) of Asheville, and Patrick Rice (Brittany) of Sylva. Additionally, he was a loving grandfather to Everett and Eliza.
