The NC slot car community has gotten a little smaller in the last few days, as Robbie Grice lost his battle with leukemia last Tuesday night.




Robbie's wife Melissa Murray Grice posted this on Facebook Tuesday evening:


"It is with profound sadness that I inform everyone that Robbie passed away just before 7 PM tonight. He passed through the pearly gates of heaven surrounded by this family, all holding his hands and expressing our neverending love. We ask for your ongoing prayers as we go through the days ahead as we know that they will be hard on us. But we take comfort in knowing that he is no longer hurting and watching down on us."


Robbie's obituary was published today in the Charlotte Observer.


"Samuel Robert Grice, 46, of Charlotte, passed away peacefully, while surrounded by his family, at his home on Monday, March 27, 2017.


Robbie was born November 6, 1970 in Charleston, SC. He spent many years traveling across the United States with various show cars and hospitality rigs for NASCAR and NHRA teams. He fulfilled his career goal just last year when he became a transport driver with Action Express Racing. When home, Robbie owned Slot Shots Raceway and Hobby Shop in Stanley, NC.


He is survived by his wife of 23 years, Melissa Grice; parents Terry and Trudy Grice; grandmother Elizabeth Duckworth; brother J.J. Grice; loving in-laws, nephews, extended family, and a host of lifelong friends.


Memorial service will be Friday, March 31, 2017 at Mulberry Baptist Church in Charlotte at 3pm. The family will receive friends preceding the service at 2pm at the church.


In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to Novant Hospice, 200 Hawthorne Lane, Charlotte, NC 28204."
