The many friends and family of Minneapolis businessman and civic leader Devin Rice gathered for his funeral Monday morning at Assumption Catholic Church in downtown St. Paul, ushered into the church with bagpipes played by this familiar looking kilt.
Mayor Chris Coleman has become better known in the past few years for his guitar work, but he's played the pipes for a long time, although rarely in public. In fact, he has only played at two other funerals, according to his spokeswoman Tonya Tennessen: that of his mother and Nancy Latimer, wife of former St. Paul Mayor George Latimer.
Rice, 54, died last week. He was a managing director at R.R. Donnelley & Sons Co., sat on the Minneapolis Charter Commission and was a devoted member of the DFL Party.
