Gerald Rice

Our beloved brother, Gerald L. “Pumpkin” Rice, 63 of Sayre who was born on June 6, 1958, joined his parents, Margaret Rice and Gerald Herman on Monday, November 15, 2021 following a courageous battle with COVID at the Robert Packer Hospital in Sayre.

Gerald is survived by his siblings, Edward (Sue) Rice, Robert Rice, Pamela Hakes, TJ Rice, Robin Condame, Cindy (Michael) Dwornik and Richard Rice; along with several nephews, nieces and great nephews and nieces.

Gerald graduated from Sayre High School in the class of 1976.  He has a large Facebook following and loved his Facebook family.  He loved family game nights, trains and sports.  He was employed by Rynones in Waverly for over 30 years.

There will be a celebration of life to be determined at a later date and will be posted on Facebook.  The family is being assisted by the Blauvelt Funeral Home, 625 Broad Street, Waverly, New York.  Those wishing to send a message of sympathy to Jerry’s family may visit our Facebook page or in “Obituaries” at

We at Rynone Kitchen and Bath send our sincerest sympathies to Jerry's entire family.  Jerry was a LONG standing employee of the stores and an invaluable source of knowledge about both the products we provide and how each of our vendors works.  Jerry's dedication to the company will long be remembered by all of us who work here and also the regular customers who continually sought Jerry out as their choice of people to work with.  He is dearly missed.
