LEVANT – Owen Jim Trice, 58, passed away peacefully May 17, 2008, at a Boston hospital, after a courageous battle with liver disease. He was born Aug. 28, 1949, in Old Town, the son of George and Mary (LaBelle) Dyer. Jim enjoyed spending time with his family, especially with his grandchildren. After many years of hand sewing moccasins, a trade he acquired from his father and uncles, he became known to many as “The Moccasin Man.” Jim’s favorite pastimes were fishing for stripers along the Penobscot, making key chains, beading necklaces and visiting with his friends at Bangor Raceway. Jim is survived by his mother of Greenbush; his loving wife, Patricia (Schneider) Trice of Levant; two sons and their wives, Joseph and Brenda Trice of Bradley, and Andrew and Jodi Trice of Milford, Conn.; two daughters, Charlene and Doug Roberto of Milford, Conn., and Christine and Jonathon Paul of Levant; his special brother, Walter Dyer of Greenbush, his brother, George Dyer, Jr. of Peabody, Mass.; one sister, Diane Lagross of Bangor; four grandchildren, Tyler Trice, Sydney Roberto, Dylan and Allison Paul; and his godmother, Kay Roy of Bradley. A celebration of his life will be held 1 p.m. Friday, May 23, at Brookings-Smith, Clark-Piper Chapel, 55 South Main St., Brewer. The family invites relatives and friends to share conversation and refreshments immediately after the service at Brookings-Smith Family Rooms, 55 South Main St., Brewer.
