Ernest Lester Brice, age 63, died on Wednesday, November 6, 2019. Ernest was born on July 17, 1956 to Tommy Brice and Shirley Ruth (Thurman) Brice. Ernest, affectionately known as Skip, was a country boy from Nocona, Texas and certainly a fan of the outdoors. He enjoyed fishing and was quick to throw in a line wherever the water gathered. He also enjoyed playing golf and played pretty well. Skip didn’t mix beans with the chili. He said what needed to be said the way it needed to be said. Skip was fun to be around and possessed a dry sense of humor mixed with a smidge of wit. Skip was a servant to many, his country included. He served honorably in the United States Airforce and continued a successful career with the Department of Defense. Skip will be missed and was a blessing to those who crossed his path. Skip is preceded in death by his father Tommy. Left to cherish his memory are mother Shirley Thurman; sister Valerie Ervin; brothers Dayle Brice and wife Sarah and Jimmy Brice; as well as many other extended family and loving friends. A graveside service will be held at 1:15pm on Wednesday, November 13, 2019 at Dallas Fort Worth National Cemetery, 2000 Mountain Creek Parkway Dallas, TX 75211.

I had the privilege of meeting and working with Skip at DLA. What an all around great guy. Loved listening to his Air Force stories. I don’t remember what he did, but he said he was kicked out of Japan and could never go back. I shared a few drinks with him at his “watering hole”. I didn’t meet a person that didn’t love him. He could also take a joke. The picture of him on the scooter is when he broke his ankle. Doug Sanders and I set the rear end on a couple reams of paper so the wheels were just off of the ground. He couldn’t figure out why it wouldn’t move. When we told him, he gave one of his famous responses “ oh d@mn, you guys”. The other is a picture of Skip and I talking while at a coworkers birthday celebration at work. I hope they have Keno where you are.
RIP Brother.

I always enjoyed Skip's many stories he would tell from his time serving in the Air Force and traveling around the world. His stories were not sugar coated, embellishing or exaggerated, but very interesting and most often ended with a little humor. He was a very humble man. I never knew him claim to be better than others or show any arrogance. I enjoyed working with him and going to his annual Surf and Turf get-together at his home. His fried catfish that was breaded in cornmeal was amazing. He would spend hours cooking and coordinating to insure everyone enjoyed themselves. It was a get-together I always looked forward to. I consider myself very fortunate and lucky to have known Skip and had him as a friend for many years. He was a true friend and will definitely be missed by many! Rest in Peace brother.
