A Short Biography
(For those of you who want to know whatever happened to me)

My birth name was Hanford Craig Rice. My mother named me after the lady mystery writer, Craig Rice. Since my father's first name was Hanford also, I always went by my middle name. Later, I modified my name in court to Kraig Rice.

I spent my years (from half of the third grade to half of the eleventh grade) living in El Sobrante, Calif. My father worked as a truck driver for Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) in Richmond, Calif. on an electrical line crew. My mother was a stay at home mom.

While living in El Sobrante I joined Troop 146 of the Boy Scouts (Mount Diablo Council) and made Eagle Scout (the highest rank) in 1961. I had a joint Court of Honor with Tom Blythe. Craig Westguard made Eagle before we did.

I attended Marie A. Murphy Elementary School (the old El Sobrante #2 School) and De Anza High School. I always took college preparatory classes.

There were a number of kids who lived around me there who I played with. Some of them were Fred Petrich, Carol Ashlock, Carol McMains, Tim Bagwell, Judy Childers, Tudy Garrett, Steve Schillinger, Bill Menzie, Linda Menzie, Darlene Menzie, Craig Alden Ver Linden, and then I had some best friends who lived farther away. Some of these were Mike Bolyard, Eddie Smith, and Melvin Gray.

In 1962 my father was promoted to an office job, so my family moved to Healdsburg, Calif. I attended and graduated from Healdsburg High School in 1963 but my heart was always with De Anza High School. A couple of my friends in Healdsburg were Jeff Rotlisberger, and Jeff Krueger.

My favorite sport at Santa Rosa Junior College (SRJC) was

In 1963 my family moved to Sebastopol, Calif. My folks traded their house in El Sobrante for one in Sebastopol. We lived there for a couple of years. During that time I attended Santa Rosa Junior College (SRJC) and earned an Associates of Arts (AA) degree in Forest Technology. I always liked an outside job. I didn't like to be couped up in an office somewhere. I was in the Hiking Club and really enjoyed our hikes.

In 1965 I enlisted in the U.S. Naval Air Force to go and fight in the Vietnam War. To learn more you can read my testimony. My folks moved to Cloverdale, Calif. in the fall of 1965. I got my honorable discharge in 1967 and started attending Bethany Bible College in Santa Cruz, Calif. This is the first place I drove a truck for pay and I liked it. I graduated in 1972 with a Bachelor of Science Degree. In 1984 my family and I founded and incorporated our own ministry, Bread On the Waters (BOW), a California religious corporation. I held ordination for 10 years and I have been the president of this ministry for over 30 years. During that time, in 1988, I taught the bible at the Upper Room Fellowship in Lodi, Calif. In 1989 I began working as a Christian layman for 20 years driving 18 wheeler trucks- I logged over one million miles. I am retired now.

I married my wife, Bonnie, in Cloverdale, Calif. in 1980. I have only been married once and have 3 grown children. I am now a widower as my wife died in June 2009, of Breast cancer.

Maybe I have gone to school with you in the past, or served with you in the Navy, worked with you somewhere, or been a neighbor to you. Or maybe you were one of my best friends I have lost contact with. If so I would love to hear from you. Drop me an email when you can. My email address is at the bottom of my ministry's home page.
