“The Charter Township of Flint wishes to publicly recognize the significant contributions of Randolph Rice to the Flint Township Community,’’ the proclamation stated.
It was presented to Rice’s widow Pat, who was accompanied by other family members. Rice’s death also was acknowledged with a moment of silence at the March 4 township board meeting.
